Hi All - There seems to be a fascination with photographing doorways, Antonio in his Moroccan series provides some examples. In Greece and in Crete, there are calenders and fine art photographs of doors (probably in UK as well but I've not looked for them). Apart from some technical aspects about producing photographs of doors (perspective, shadows, detail) I would have thought that compositional possibilities are limited. Yet doors are facinating. Why?
Here are three from my sojourn in Chania in Crete. Which if any have been processed with tone-mapping software?
The first shows the colour blue to have been used as a surround, normally the Greeks like the door itself to be blue.
The second is unusual in that there are surrounding porthole windows. Those who know there Cretan history will recognise these as from the Venetian occupation.
The final example is more traditional , but reflects the sad fact that many buildings are unoccupied and in ruins. Nevertheless, a disused doorstep is a fine place for a home-made flower box.
Comments and crits are welcome as always
