I sometimes find that doors and windows can make very interesting features in a photo which is exactly what those wooden doors do for me in this photo. It draws your attention immediately and only then do the walls and colour contrast grab my attention apart from the figure in the photo, makes you wonder where all the people have gone and what lies behond those doors.
Akan lebih baik kalau siku trotoar terlihat, warna soft luarbiasa, biar matahari menyengat kesan adem terasa
Antonio Feci — Yucatan street scene : Photo of the Day.The doors of the building on the Yucatan in Mexico await us to escape the sun and visit the photographer's YourShot photo gallery. Antonio Feci is a great photographer from Italy. His images are beautiful, super-real, in bold color and in classical composition. For example: This gorgeous landscape from the Dolomite mountains (http://on.natgeo.com/1gmFl0e) — a real subject contrast to the Yucatan street scene. Gary Conn
A sort of cubism washed with soft colors, and the crisp blue and white sky above, bring into focus the white outlined brown door, just passed by, by the mans sharply etched figure on his way. A well framed picture that I really like. j.e.s.
When we look to a foto, we always expect to feel something with the foto or expect that foto gives us a message or something like that. Looking for this foto, that I have to say is simple but with the colours well capture, my feeliing right now is: Iwish to be there! Weather in my country, at the moment is bad. It's frozen, it's rainning and the wind decide to make is presence too! I want to be the person in the foto...
The passerby with whatever is draped over his head, looks like a cloud himself. The yellow orange in the foreground contrasts and pops the blue of the sky and the wall to the right. The red arrow pointing left does the same thing with the green wall. It also creates an opposing force with the passerby moving in the opposite direction. If you left anything out or moved it, the picture would not say anything, so the moment transcends us into another realm.
There is a minimalist stillness in this street scene that invites a moment of magic. The white clouds overhead make the green wall seem like a facade. The intriguing doors would open into an entirely alternate vista, a landscape of the mind and heart. Letters spelling "Entrance not for everybody" sometimes appear in the lintel over the door.
