You might not you know? ;)

Hey ... welcome to the forums here Justin :thumbup:

For me though, personally, this photo doesn't have much that interests me or captures my attention. But then I'm not someone with a passion for this type of work so that probably biases my viewpoint somewhat. Others here may disagree.

I think for this to be stronger it would need to feature something a bit more prominently. For instance, if that yellow, block wall continues a fair bit to the left of the frame here I'd have included much more of it. That way the colour and repetitive pattern in the blockwork would become a strong feature and allow the door to stand out as something obviously meant to be included as well.
As this is, the two elements tend to fight each other in my eyes.

I agree with MA on his recommendations. My only add in is that the numbers being cut off on top don't add to the composition, it would be stronger with them in.

but I like the colours in this one and you certainly captured the rusty nature of the door.

Thank you everyone.

@Mad Aussie
Thanks, glad to be here :D
I'll keep in less busy for now on :)

Thanks. I guess I should break up the wall and the door into their on separate photos.
