Pic of the Week_In Through the Out Door

Canon 5D camera and Canon 24-105mm f4 L series IS lens

Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4 L series USM lens @ 32mm Exposure Details: 1/60 second @ f8 ISO 100

This image features the front of an old building in Maldon, Victoria. I was initially drawn to the dark, roughly textured wood and the graphic design elements of the windows and door. While the scene looked good in color, I felt the red painted door was too dominant. I’m happy that the black and white rendering has ensured the door doesn’t overpower the other focal points within the scene.

The title to this image will I hope cause folks to ponder what the image may mean. Ultimately we all find meaning where and how we can. There is power in names and titles and if the title to this photograph makes you stop and think about it a little longer and in a different way than you otherwise would, then the power of that photograph, as a thing unto itself, and its impact on you is strengthened.

Processing of the original color image was conducted in Adobe Lightroom 2 with final adjustments in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
