One of my recurrent themes: the Glimpse. I wanted here to focus on the dichotomy between the graciousness of the door knocker and the rough texture of the door, telling its own story

Very interesting light, perhaps the best thing about this photo is that we see it from the fringe; we are using the peripheral vision, we are forced to look away not by what is in the frame but what is not; when you look at the door, you focus there but your gaze wanders to the outsides; brilliant.

What an unusual door knocker! And what an unusual choice for a photograph...thought provoking.

This photo almost tells a story, good job there. However it lacks in depth? Maybe a different angle or just a wide frame. Good Luck!
