It is nice to get a blue ribbon. Thanks everybody for voting!
The picture was taken on my trip to Poland in the "Old Town" in Lublin, in the part which was not renovated yet.the door probably leads to a storage area. I like the atmosphere of the old buildings, which seems to be well presented in toned B&W pictures.

Wow! What a great image... This one is one of the best in the last several challenges put together. The top photos are always very good. But the difference to me is, how long can I just sit and look at the one image? Could I see it hanging on my wall for a week? A month? A year? Longer?

This is one of those that I do not tire. I love the texture, the way the light sets the scene, the tones, the play of the shadows. The image draws the viewer in, and invites the watcher to invent their own story. Photos that spark not only the interest of the viewer, but also the imagination, are not an every day occurance.

Congratulations on a very well deserved first place finish.
