My primary objective when taking and producing this image was to try and get some recognition in the Posthumous thread. I get such a sense of achievement when it happens, and itís been a while. Hereís hoping.

I asked my son to stare at me through the glass pane and I got the effect I was hoping for. I'm sure many will not like the fact that my son is a primary subject matter and distracts from the door and this will be reflected in my score.

I had to enter a shot of this door as it has featured in many of my previous images such as:

6 hours to go and it's sitting on 5.5xxx which for many is considered a 'meh' result. For me this means it has been better received than most of my entries. Thanks for the comments, as this is what I was really hoping to get with this shot.

Creepy. The use of color in the composition anchors the mood.
