Tuesday - Doorways


Today's challenage was Doorways.
I stood for an hour in a light drizzle, looking like like an idiot, waiting for people to get out of the way so I can take this shot. It seems people like to walk into the shot as soon as someone leaves the frame of my shot.
Also people talking on their cell phones, they seem to ONLY have reception in front of my camera, they go along walking, and just STOPS right in front of you to finish their conversation on the phone.



So, let me discuss this picture:
The challenage today was to shoot a doorway. There are many interesting doorways I could have chosen, like this one


I originally wanted to shoot this doorway, It had this really nice circular garden area behind it, but I couldn't shoot into it due to a young couple that's making out there, and refusing to move.
So, of the two, which one do you guys like more?
Tell me in the comments, or show me some shots of some cool doorways in your area in the comments.

  2. I prefer the first one but for me it's missing some more lights or brightness it's a bit sad

  4. I think if you had centered the first photo a little more (perhaps even just cropped the right hand side off) it would have made it that much better. I love the pillars though!

  16. Love the first picture , it's like a roman feel to it. And I know what you mean about people getting in your shot, they just have no common sense to just not get in your way!

  19. Great shots. I like the first doorway more.

    To me, it always make me nervous waiting for people to leave the place where I want to take the shot.

  20. Very nice pics! People are so oblivious, I have a million nice shots of trips I've taken around the island ruined by people standing around in the shot!
