Beauty everywhere... I don't know what it is about doors with character that make such good photos. This really is good. A lot of people would have passed this by. You didn't. Well spotted.

Great elements - colours, textures : perhaps crop a little from left to have the lock less centered?

Paul Chepikian
Thanks, Naim: It's funny that you say that about the image being centered. One of the decisions I had to make when taking the images was do I omit the two metal pieces in the upper left hand corner so that the lock would not be centered? I decided that having those two elements in the shot were important which is why I initially did not crop them out. The lock is ever so slightly off center. It all is subjective, isn't it? Seven's choice would have been to crop out the elements as to not have the lock centered. It's not right or wrong, just personal preferences. I guess if we really come down to it, it's actually yet "another" picture of rust and peeling paint. Thank you both for taking the time to comment!

Paul Chepikian
Great Suggestion! That's actually a very good suggestion, Seven. I may give that a crop in the original, see what it looks like and repost. Once again, thanks for taking the time and your comment.

Marvellous This is just marvellous Paul. I would not change a thing. Yes the lock is geometrically centered but I think the detail on the left compensates for that.

Paul ! Very nice image. Beautiful colour. Very good composition and detail. I like so much. Cong....Well done !..

Paul Chepikian
Force I couldn't help it! It was too much to ignore. Not only is there peeling paint, there is also rust! Part of the China Series. I know, I know, it's in English but I swear, it was shot in Guangzhou! Thanks in advance for any feedback.
