Architectural photos are a passion for me, not just in the whole building but in the details also. And doors and arches have their own delight – not just for design, architectural style or the aged and weathered character of some – but also for the questions: what lies behind that door? where does it lead? what view is revealed through the frame of an open arch….?
Rows of arches receding into the distance are fascinating for the shapes and lighting that can be revealed – as seen in these two differing images.
The boldness of the blue against stark white walls, so typical of Greek architecture.
…which contrasts with this rustic aged Italian door.
..or the detail in this Tudor doorway in Warwick – with this Christmas posy.
This open door leading to the Moorish designed room in Sitges was a poor quality original photograph, badly under and over exposed. But I liked the image and managed to recover some detail with multiple image layers and some posterisation.
Leaving this citadel late one evening the sun bathed the entrance arches with difficult lighting. An HDR technique coped with the extremes of light.
