    There is just something about this door that intrigues me. We installed a new door handle and coupled with the old cracking paint, it grabbed my attention. Does it do the same for you?

    Cool contrast. The key (more the rope attached to it) takes away from the finished product imo..

    I like the angle here... the door edge and jamb are vertical but everything else is skewed.

    Since the door is on my back patio, I might have to try the shot again sans key (and rope lol)

    Thanks for the comment rez

    Do you think you could tarnish the brass in PP?

    I probably could, but I like the 'new' vs. 'old' look of the picture. It's what originally caught my attention to take the picture, so I probably wouldn't change something that I liked enough to take the shot lol.


    IMO, it would be like a shot of a child playing on the playground, then asking to PP the child out and replacing it with another because the child doens't fit.... lol.

    No way, we thought about it, but everyone that sees it says "Don't change out that door, it's a great door". It doesn't have any issues or leaking or anything like that, so it's cosmetically pleasing. Especially for New Orleans, at least imo. lol.

    I wouldn't eat the paint chips though, could contain lead ;) lol

    Whoever fitted that handle and lock on that door wants shooting it looks awful and it is the wrong size because it is over hanging the mould on the door jamb

    This isn't actually about the construction of the door or handle fitment lol. Can we get back on topic of the actual picture .... please?"

    It's frustrating to come into here, excited b/c someone commented on a photo, only to see "Time to get a new door ..." or "Whoever fitted that handle and lock on that door wants shooting it looks awful and it is the wrong size because it is over hanging the mould on the door jamb" and gsgary ... English please?

    I really like the contrast between new shiny handle and cracking paint. I do find the strin on the key takes your eyes out of the photo, but i like the key in it.

    I look forward to seeing your next take on it if you do reshoot it.:thumbup:

    I appreciate what you're going for with this shot -- contrast, etc. But I don't think enough of the photo is in focus. The door has personality -- much more than the door handle -- so why not show off all that great texture. Also, I think the key is a distraction. Remove it, stop down the aperture, and recompose the shot so the door handle doesn't break the strong vertical lines and see how that turns out.
