NEW EDIT ADDED (SEE POST #9)
Nice image; I think I'd like to see it with a little more contrast however.
I agree,a little more contrast but not too much mind as it would take away from the texture
Thanks for your comments, guys. I tried a more contrasty version, but what I came up with was not good enough.
It's pretty interesting, the angle of it sort of distracts from the subject for me though.
Also, seeing as the edges are quite light, I think it would benefit from a dark border to really "close" the edges off and keep the picture a solid unit.
Well, I shot it as I found it One of the hinges was about to burst (this place is really 125 years old), so the door was quite crooked.
This is a great piece of advice, thanks!
Interesting. Have you played around with Curves in Photoshop?
My post-processing skills are almost non-existent. Feel free to play with the image if you want ...
OK, it took me a while but I have come up with what I hope is a better result. I added some vignetting, some sharpening, and some contrast.
I like both but--there's one in every crowd--I like the original better. Good work.
Thanks guys. I have the nagging feeling that the new version is either too sharp or too contrasty or both.
