I am so damn happy it's unbelievable. I am honored to place in the neighborhood of Wendy and Andrew, two photographers I hold in the highest esteem.

Another great day, courtesy of DPC. Thanks team, again, for all the advice. (Special thanks to Carole.) Flashers!

Stumbled upon this door about six months ago coming back from a hike and kept it in mind for just such a challenge (odd but true).

It's quite large, and I was going to go with the big view until my team told me the handles looked more like a decoration. They are indeed the true door handles.

I think the closer crop really revealed the interesting qualities beyond that of just the simple but cool design, and I'm again grateful for their advice.

Editing same as it always was:
Crop
Levels
Curves
A tiny bit of DJ work on the color sliders
Slight USM
Save for web
Slighter USM

About all I know, to be honest.

Thank you for all the wonderful and constructive comments. I'm learning loads thanks to all of you and I really appreciate it.

Amazing textures and geometry. This appears to be a flat surface, but there's a tremendous feeling of depth.
