Wow - that is one ornate door!
I think you'd capture the detail better if the light weren't so bright - as it is it is a little jarring to look at. The angle is fine, but I'd also be interested to see it head on, even if that's the more predictable angle - it's detailed enough that I'm not sure it needs more than the predictable angle to be interesting.
Nice find - what sort of a building was it attached to, a church?
Thanks for looking, Stella.
Bright is what I was trying to convey as the wood is very blond and Mexico is sunny.
It was on a house facing the street and, in Mexico, the doors are sooooo indicative of the residents inside.
Ah....my only trips to Mexico involve tequila and, well, more tequila and that was a lifetime ago so it's hazier now than it ever was. And was it ever hazy.
A house, really? That is interesting. I see it has a letter slot, now that you mention it.
If I was Jesus, that's the kind of door I'd have!
If you can, reshoot it when there is much less ambient light, but from the same angle. If you can, add an off-camera flash on the other side of the door. This will make shadows face the camera and the detail will pop.
