I don't like the composition here. Too much to look at; the ground in front of the grass is superfluous. 4 sjgleah

Good subject matter but the door is a little off-centered. Perhaps crop the pic off to center the door and eliminate some of the walkway in the foreground? This would also probably look amazing in black and white. Good job! - 8

Great shot. The nice detail really brings out the texture of the door. Cropping out the light might have been a good idea because it seems to take your eyes away from the door.

Nice, love that the door is partially painted and shows the remnants of previous coats. Although the low viewpoint makes one appreciate the size of the door, I'd be interested to see it face on, if it's big, maybe taken standing on a chair? The lamp by the door looks new and jars a little with the fabulous door.

Good color and composition.

i like it! but the ground is a little plain and detracts from the focus of the picture

I like. Good pickup on the attempt by the painter to prevent the subject from being further old.

I stared at this photo for about 5 minutes trying to decide if the door being off center because of including the lamp mattered to me or not and I still don't know. I really like the colors in this photo but I think it may have looked a little better if it was more centered since the symmetrical door fills the whole frame and is the main subject.

Somebody didn't finish their job, ha ha! (paint). I like it. Reminds me of the old barn door at my grand dad's farm. I'm not sure, just an idea, but maybe this shot could have put the door in dead centre ... some people believe that the rule of thirds should always be followed. I don't. Oh yeah, I give it a 7.

"Doors to the Past" would have been a better title.

Powerful image of a beautiful old portal.

interesting example of old :) In this image, I think i would prefer to see the door centered and the light removed from the image... the light isn't really contributing anything to the image and it is keeping your door from being centered in the frame... - jmsetzler

I really like the red and the wood texture. If you got even closer would it be even better?

I guess I would like to know what the door leads to. Church? Warehouse?

i really like this composition and the punch of red. that's awesome! I wish the bricks looked older...maybe if you had played with the color levels/saturation a bit this would have looked really old. 7 LIsa

Nice--the lamp on the right isn't really needed---it seems to throw the picture off.
