Two elements, well maybe three elements, of this photograph really work well IMO.

1. the perspective of the wall continues in its own shadow.
2. as others have mentioned, the detail in the beach tree leaves lower right. A nice place for the viewers eye to settle.
3. the burst of life and light coming through the impenetrable wall's doorway.

nicely seen. could possibly have used just a bit more detail in the shadows, though, but that's subjective.

This skittish image, aside from the calm spray of leaves in the lower right corner, took awhile to settle into coherence. The multitude of tiny leaves on the left transitioned through the somewhat larger rocks of the wall into those large, well-defined leaves on the right. I see the highlit tree in the wall's opening as your spirit passing out into the sunlight, as a new life beckons. Black and white is a fine choice, yet this photograph seems full of color. And what a strong title. I'm happy for your beautiful passage.
Personal favorite of the challenge.
