Doors of Alton

I went out on a photo walk at the Historic Alton Mill with the local camera club last night. Driving through Alton on the way to the mill, I noticed some interesting details on the old buildings I passed.  So after shooting at the mill for a while, I wandered back down the street with my camera and tripod.  There were two doorways that I thought were really interesting.  The sun had set about thirty minutes earlier, so there were lots of mysterious shadows to work with. Both of these were converted to b&w so I could alter what was bright and dark. I then added some colour back in, and on “A Heart of Stained Glass” added a smudged blur to the darker areas to soften some of the hard lines of the decorative grilles on the door.
