365-331 It’s just a door

Yet I had a tough time deciding between the two pictures of it for my 365 shot. On one side I like the close-up detail of the handle and lock, although I’ve done plenty of those kind of detail shots before. And on the other hand I like the interior lights of the other shot. To me it has better and more interesting lines and a nice contrast from the outdoors to the interior warmth. I always lean towards landscape oriented shots, especially in the 3:2 format, but I didn’t want that to be the only deciding factor. In the end I went with the detail shot because I like the textures and subtle color changes. What do you think? Pentax K20D, DA18-135.

    the first one– the colors of the rust are what make it a beautiful shot.

    Love it! The color gave it’s own feel to the photos.

    Great shot! I have a thing for doors and this a great one. Love the texture and the color. I immediately thought of the many hands that have grabbed that handle and pulled and walked through the door into….
