Lens-Artists Challenge #20 – Open Sesame: Doors and Doorways

One of the things I love to photograph is relics.  Places that have aged.  At Nymans in West Sussex, stands the ruins of the house that was destroyed by fire.


As you can see in the photograph above, the charm of the entrances to the grounds of the main house.

Also staying at Nymans, there is a gate that leads you to ornate gardens.


For the above image, I used Topaz Impression to give an oil paint effect to the photo.

My final image for this challenge, again a gate, is this beautiful gate photographed at Sissinghurst Castle.

    1. Sometimes I have that feeling… it all depends what the place is. One place I did feel was very eerie was Alcatraz. Thank you for your comment.. xx
