Not certain how the title connects to the image but I do very much like this shot. Though I'm not too keen on the inclusion of the bush on the left. It takes a lot of the focus away from the very unique and artful doorway and the path to the wonderful garden a head. Perhaps if the area with the bush was a little darker, but in any case you did a good job with this :) 7

The arcitechture here is very beautiful and mysterious. Is the sprit myth a Spanish or Latin one? That's what this picture reminds me of.

this shot would have worked a lot better if it was, indeed, taken after dark.

I like the off-center placement of the archway.

I'm trying to decide whether or not I like this the way it is or if I'd prefer a crop closer to the door to draw attention down the path. The colors and clarity are pretty good though, and I love that the area beyond the door takes on a painterly effect. Good work.

Oh areally...I didn't know that. Good lighting.

A shot in the dark would have done more to emphasize the message.

This is a pretty cool pic, I really like the view through the doorways to the trees beyond, but it doesn't really convey "stay on the path after dark" to me. It's just too light. Overall, though, a good pic.

Nice pic although you should of had a person pretending to be your ghost

I feel like this would demonstrate the urban legend better if it were actually nighttime in the photo.

I don't think it goes with the title too well, but it's still a pretty picture!

Hmmm, I don't see how this photo corresponds with the Superstition. I love the building though.

tough lighting. You tried your best to keep that highlight under control on the upper left. Perhaps I would have recomposed for a centered, symmetrical shot of the path itself. 5

should have been taken at night to match the superstition and title

Would have been nice for the framing challenge! A nice image

Had never heard this. I like. The pic too.

I never heard that spirits can't walk on a path. I'll take your word for that but the photo is showing a daytime scene which is going against the legend. A night scene, perhaps with a walker, would have brought the idea out more.

Don't see spirits or after dark or anything that would sell the idea to me. Looks like an archway into a building.

Never heard of such superstition? intriguing...

I've never heard this Superstition but its very interesting. Those black lines at the top take my eye away from the path. since you coudln't have cropped that out with out losing the arch maybe including the etire balcony or over hang of whatever that is holding up would have been better.

Is that really a saying? I've never heard it before.

Feels slightly tilted towards the left. I think it would be stronger as a vertical of just the path - the bright white on the left side is distracting.
