Hi Wolfgang

It is the element of secrecy that Marjolein touched on, that makes the image fascinating and thought provoking.  The presence of light coloured stones usually indicate vehicular access, as these become bright when illuminated by headlights and act as guide in the absence of artificial lighting. But it really leaves me guessing and speculating, as I suspect it is mean't to.

Very well done Wolfgang! 


Best Regards

Excellent, Wolfgang!

Bw, Volker

Wolfgang, I have to agree with many of the previous comments.  There is most definitely a sacred, shrine-like feel to this.  And I see what Jack means about the vignetting, tones, and composition that have helped emphasize that sacred aura.

i always appreciate how well balanced your photos are and of their simplicity

Marjolein M.

Indeed, your carefully balanced composition and the way you processed the photo seem to convey some kind of sacred (and secret) aura...

As if some holy shrine awaits behind those closed wooden doors... 

Ruud Albers

A very nicely composed beautiful shot, Wolfgang!


Jack McRitchie
In your composition, these simple objects take on a symbolic and almost ritualistic aura. The slight vignetting and the precision of the presentation brings out the mystery in what would have been - in lesser hands - a quite ordinary image.

Wolfgang Arnold

Ruud, Jack, Marjolein, Alf: big thanks for stopping by and commenting. Indeed my intention was to take a very ordinary subject and present it in a way that it catches some attention and leaves puzzles the viewer.

I like the tones here. They set a very nice framing. I like the simplicity of this photo a lot.
