do something interesting with the lighting. this is bland. Also, directly flashing bright things makes highlights blow out.

Meets challenge theme ok. Not much to be excited about as far as subject. Fairly even light, except the hilights on the metal.

When I look at the photo, I see a handle, a metallic one, of the kind that you're supposed to press with the thumb and then push. This handle is put on a wooden door, without any fancy texture, design, or patterns. That is, one of the most common and boring doors out there. I don't know where this door leads, but I'd guess is one of those doors to some quite normal and usual, bordering with boring, rooms. It looks like a door of a family house.

Now, I pray tell me, how am I to relate this ordinary door with the excitement that the title asks? Is the composition such that evokes a dramatic moment? I don't think so, I even think that you didn't even bent your knees enough to push the handle on my face. Is the lightning such that the shadows cast evoke a sense of danger? No, I don't find them.

A photo is supposed to equal a thousand words. Your title made a thousand pictures on my mind, and none of them is the one you've taken.

So, to finally answer your question: yes, please enter, there's nothing spectacular on the other side.
