Door

Across the street from the old warehouse now artist building was yet another old building.  This one I believe is abandoned.  There was just something about the old doorway that caught my attention and again I found myself wondering what was this once a doorway to?  I converted the picture to B&W to emphasize all of the fine textures of and around the door.  Starting out with the color picture I went adjustment layer happy – desaturated,  fiddled with brightness and contrast, a green filter (the doorway  is an old green), added  hard light at 46%, topped off with a cooling photo filter at around 20% and merged layers to this.   The filters really helped bring out the textures of the peeling paint and wood grain of the boarded up window panes and added a bit more of an “aged” look to things, not that it wasn’t old enough already.

I must be having a mad scientist moment this morning; felt like being creative.  Wherever you are I hope your day is a bright one.

    I have a point-and-shoot camera. Virtually everything you described about filters and what-not sailed right over my head. After reading all that you went through to take this photo, saying, “Nice pic,” hardly seems adequate. I got it. “Really nice pic!” 🙂
