In this edition of "Man, he sure takes a lot of pictures of doors...":
This shot was actually taken at night. I was coming home from walking around taking photos, like I do, and decided to swing by Otto for a slice of pizza - always a good decision. I was heading up Forest Ave. and saw this door. Now, I used to live on Forest Ave, so I've walked by this door dozens of times. However, this time, it was the light that caught my eye.
In this image, there's a lamp post to my right (I'm leaning on it, in fact), and the light shining into this little alcove looked awesome. So I snapped a few shots, and what I saw in my camera was not what I expected. In reality, the door looked much more illuminated than it appears here.
But I love the way this looks.
The way that the light hits the middle of the door, but doesn't make it to the top or bottom creates a really cool effect with a lot of contrast. I attribute this contrast partially to the awesome new lens I just got (which I love, by the way). Anyway, I thought this looked cool, and tweaked it only slightly in processing - accentuated the contrast a bit, if I recall.
Another door photo for the collection.
