    I'm glad you all like them :-) .

Lo - The doorway is the entrance to Cardiff Castle's Banqueting Hall (South Wales) where :-

"The eyes of the world were on Cardiff Castle as world leaders gathered here on 4 September 2014 during the NATO summit. Heads of State from over 60 countries, including US President Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and UK Prime Minister David Cameron posed for a ‘family photo’ in front of the iconic Keep before dining in the Castle’s magnificent Banqueting Hall.

Probably the most 'important' thing to happen close to me that I can remember.

I have no idea what is behind the two doors as they had 'No Admittance' signs on them that I had to clone out.

    What an amazing set of doors. You've done an excellent job of framing them and of getting the exposure just right. Great detail considering the high ISO. I hope you will tell us where they are from.

    I like how you got the first doorway to frame the other two. Interesting doors too.

    Good find and an interesting perspective.

    Thanks very much both :-) .

SteveBee - I did try lots of angles with these doors. One was from a lower angle as you suggested, but I didn't like what it did to the verticals.

    Well-exposed for the lowlight conditions. Nice framing of the subject. This perspective somehow makes the inner doors look unusually short. I wonder if a lower shooting angle might have fixed that and also brought the lovely half-rounds above the doors more within the frame of the outer doorway.

    Grand subject. the high contrast brings out the complexity of the detail well.

    Thank you all very much :-) .

aoc46 - Possible yes, but I would then have had to include two red fire extinguishers, plus chairs and a corridor.

    Very impressive doors. Might it have been possible to shoot straight-on through the arch, showing just the right-hand door? This might have made the scene seem less "squeezed".
