RESULTS!

Thanks, everyone, for posting such interesting interpretations of the theme - all winners in their own way!

Some of the entrances themselves were more impressive than others (e.g. Maureen, Allen) and some were intriguing and led me to wonder what was behind them (Jason, Jean-Guy, Kevan).

LJG's entry was a nice shot of multiple entries, a couple were maybe pushing the definition (Pinnacle's sunrise and Goodysgotacuda's HDR cruise ships), and I would have liked to see John_B's train door not so dominated by border, signature and title (which, incidentally, should be on the subject line).

NVM's entrance to what I'm sure is that park in Vancouver's Chinatown makes me wish I could return there and shoot for a whole day - a unique and truly beautiful place.


In the end, I chose the one I'd hang on the wall if it were mine, so...

The winners are:

FIRST: Jason_C's "221". Please let us know what is through that curving, slightly scary entrance with its faded graffiti. A slum? Back door of a palace? Detention centre?

SECOND: Kevan's "210 Forest Ave". A classy facade indeed - your house?;)

THIRD: MSJGD's slave entrance (although I'd love to see it without that heavy border and title)

Over to you, Jason!

Fun topic,teekay; way to go, Jason. I think what I liked most about your photograph is the shadow that looms about the numbers.

My image was taken while traveling in the Midwest, from St. Louis to Chicago. We made a couple stops along the way to pay our respects to some FLW structures, this being one.
