Playing around with a picture I took at the start of the month. Lots of dodging and burning. Overlayed the texture from an elephant skin to get the texture on the walls.

That does look exactly like what I imagine Bilbo's front door to look like. Strange that there's no window at all around this entrance. The colors are very rich and the textures are good. Nice contrast. The vignette gives it a night look, but the carriage lamps are not turned on. It might be nice to add a little glow to them. 8

Does indeed look like one. Very rich textures and tones - quite inviting!

I wonder if Frodo is in?
I like everything about it except the matt on the floor, i'm not really sure it goes with everything else? But then I can't really decide.
Perhaps might have also looked good with the lights turned softly on?
Overall though it's a greap capture and technically very good

The doormat is not centered. :) Just had to give you a hard time. He-he. Nice symmetry here. Good luck in the challenge.

Okay...you've got me. I could be the biggest LOTR fan ever. That fact, plus the fact that this picture is amazing gets you a 10 from me!
