This image has awesome depth. I feel as if I could walk down the walk and right into the door. Good work.

Nice! I like how it feels like you're in an Escher drawing.

"Am I looking up? Down? Are those stairs? No. What are they?"

It's a great example of how discord can be a GOOD thing :)

I like the angle and perspective and general tones. I find the "black" rail to the left a bit distracting and out of sync with the feel of the rest of the pic.

I love this pic, the perspective is great! it gives me a feeling like the world just flipped on me and I'm falling into a doorway. It really says something (to me) if a pic makes me "feel" something physical like falling!

This is my kind of photo! I enjoy being able to see something completely abstract simultaneously with what is being represented. Here, all the details seem geometrical: the windows, doors, bridge(?), and then on a finer level, the wooden planks, the bricks, the railing, and even the more ornate elements like the sill flowers and whatever that fencing is below it. All of it is geometrical (the flowers, for instance, are in a perfectly straight line at the bottom of the window). I like the tilt because most of the shapes here are on a straight vertical/horizontal, so by tilting you allow us to see more things. I feel like I'm tilting my head to see something more closely, the way people do. You have just the right amount of contrast to make details prominent without burning them right out. I think voters would accuse you of not being focused enough, but I like the soft focus, it's important to the texture of this piece, and allows some warmth into your geometry.

Initially the angle is a bit disconcerting, but not in a bad way. Then as one wanders into the picture, even more disconcerting (again not in a bad way) is the fact the door seems to open into a wall with more doors/windows. One begins to wonder if it's a brightly lit nightmare. And somehow, some way, the white step in the front is beckoning the viewer to enter, nightmare or not.

Colors are great, particularly the green of the door and the bricks. Very intriguing shot!

I really like the "crooked" angle you took this shot from. Really adds a unique dimension to what may have been an otherwise boring photo. The half open door leaves me wondering what is on the other side.
