Had this idea waaaay back for some challenge from the fall, but didn't use it, so decided this was a good time to try.

Post-challenge: I'm pretty happy with the comments. I was definitely going for spooky, and the tilt was intended to add to that uncomfortable feeling.

The tilt definitely works here but so does the lower angle, which serves to put the viewer in a very vulnerable position.

I've been slacking apparently - I missed this one! Very well executed and it seems as though you got what you were after. Love the red!

Jeffrey, nice shot. I just voted on this one last night. I love the red color and the erie look to it. I think the angle really adds to the erieness of the shot. Good job and I actually thought this would hit 6.

Though I generally do not like the angled approach, this works quite nicely, Jeff. It's quite eerie and forbidding! Nice job, underrated IMO.

Interesting but why the tilt?

it *is* scary, even with the parrot flag (were you trying to order a pirate flag, perhaps?). 7

I like how you've incorporated more than just the door in this photo. The flag flapping in the breeze adds a nice touch of movement and reality. Cool and creepy. Well done. Good luck in the challenge.
