Ok, well maybe it’s not a real dungeon as evidenced by the fact that there’s a huge window (a dungeon no-no), as well as the fact that it’s three stories up in the Stone Mill.  But when I saw this door, a dungeon was the first thing that came to mind.  There’s even a chair for the guard to sit.  The light coming through the window was perfect for this scene, and I decided to give the image a very dark B&W treatment to give it a more sinister dungeon-like feel.

And by the way, this would make a very efficient dungeon, as this door leads to a connecting passage to the mill across the way.  A passage that doesn’t exist anymore.  So take one step out this door, and you’ll find yourself on the pavement three stories below.  Ouch.

    Wow, what an awesome image! Love the dark feel and detail – makes you feel like nothing good can come from that door…except for the image! Nice work Steve!

    Beautiful capture Steven! Love the way the light coming from the window casts patterns of light and shadow across the door! 🙂

    What a great play of light and shadow Steven. The B&W choice really adds some mood to the image.

    That light is crazy awesome, Steven! I love that door, although it sounds like that first step outta it is a real doozy! Best be wearing a good helmet before taking THAT step! Great shot, the light here is just extraordinary, my friend, and you’ve captured it just perfectly.
