Paimpont 2018: Day 79 - Textures, Shadows & Rust

I've featured close-up and detail shots of these garage doors before but today I was struck by the shadow patterns cast by the low late-afternoon sun so I decided to post a wider view.

These doors witness the truth of the old saying, 'A creaking gate lasts the longest'!

I'm undecided whether I like it best on black or white...
I am always fascinated but old doors, this is a classic, nice shot Richard

Intriguing

I like it. And this horseshoe!

VML like this as presented...and equally on black. Yet am positive that on the toss of a coin, I'd likely prefer the the other side.

Great textures and light, reinforces the truth in "its all about the light" FAV. Great background for a street portrait....

What would have been called the cart house over here. Those doors have seen great change . like the branch shadows projected on here .

Egy ajtó nem különösen érdekes, de a fotós azzá teheti! Ez itt remekül sikerült!

I see what you mean, it's very nice on white, the black kind of closes it in. A white "matt" opens it up.

Nicely captured.

This is marvellous.
Love this old door that has history. A door that can age with dignity. Which "modern" door can do that in this way?
Beautifully composed in the picture area - with a view of the textures of the boards, the rust stains of the nail heads,... The horseshoe is a nice contrast to the dominant straight lines - it is repeated as a subdued echo in the chain. Very nice also the blurred shadows of the branches - they must not be hard, but just as they are in the photo. Beautiful also the restrained colours - brown in the rust, delicate green in the boards, but in the whole appearing as b&w.
Big fav
