This door is one of the side entrances to the Corn Exchange in the city of Brighton, England. Situated in the Royal Pavilion gardens the Corn Exchange was completed in 1805, originally being the riding school part of the Prince Regent’s (King George IV) riding house and stables. The latter were converted into a Concert Hall in about 1860. The building in now part of the Brighton Dome arts venue complex which consists of the Concert Hall, Corn Exchange and Pavilion Theatre. The Brighton Dome staged the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest which was the year Abba won.

Wonderfully mysterious Brian, your light capture and shadow play on the building add drama. Who or what lies behind the door? I like the soft colours very much. Best regards Rosemary

Really well observed and taken shot. Wonderful play of shadows and low light. The shadow of the tree branches cast on the wall and doors look as if the shadow is embracing the house. Colors and lights are superb, great detail on the stonewrk and doors with crispy textures. Awesome shot, Congrats

Another excellent idea and, of course, another superb photo job!
The details of that door and facade together with the shadows of the surrounding trees are truly fascinating!
TFS - congrats,

The contrasts between light and dark are very aesthetic. I love the amazing forms of this architecture, and the texture of the walls, and shadows. Excellent creative work, and masterfully done. Bravo.
Have a nice day

I'm always embarrassed when these "mixed" style, I see buildings. Téglaépítészet the English mixed with the "eastern" form-world. And what a surprise: this thing work, not interfering, and harmonious.
In this respect, I love England. Both conservative and modern. The photo is good. Stands out from the darkness at the door. Nice detail.

I saw this one earlier on and was struck by the spooky mood, the stark shadows and strong light. Powerful image. I almost expect Nosferatu to appear from behind the shadows. Regards. Klaudio.

one more fantastic capture from that unusual for England architecture. This one is less impressive but the detail is very pretty as well. The light is attractive too with so much shadows all around, they create a very unusual atmosphere.
Very well done,

a beautiful picture of wonder old door in unusual light condition,
its original design is strange, and in this shadow situation it looks like the door toward the unknown magical space…
lighted stone surface is beautifully shining, it makes the view more mysterious,
thank you for your excellent shot,

I love this shot, a little worrying, an image from an horror movie.
Your PP is excellent, it enhances every pixel.
You very well exploited this moonlight and made something original with a great atmosphere. I like very much.

the light on the door is really extraordinary and gives the door mysterious appeal, I wonder what time of the day the picture was taken.
