    August Photo Challenge: "Doors & Gates"

    So here's an interesting one, which came from a suggestion in our Photo Challenge Ideas thread.

    It's something that I think all of us may have used from time to time; Might even have a few in the building where we live or work. I'm assuming.

    This month's challenge, "Doors & Gates"! Photograph an interesting door or gate, or photograph a door or gate in an interesting way; It's all up to you.

    As usual, we'll vote in an open poll on a winner when the month is done.

    - -

    Our winner has a choice of any of the prizes below. Runner up receives their choice of our selection of ebooks.

    1. A one month subscription to Learnable.

      With a Learnable subscription, you receive monthly credits that give you access to a wide range of courses—including thousands of videos on web-related topics and SitePoint's entire ebook collection.

    2. Your choice of SitePoint's Ebooks. Our latest is Responsive Web Design in a Weekend. Learn responsive techniques to make your designs look magnificent on any device. Browse and view sample ebooks here.

    The Rules:
    ALL WORK MUST BE YOUR OWN.

    No goofy Photoshop effects or overdone photo-manipulation. Entrants are allowed to correct colour, contrast, and make minor tweaks such as removing litter or distracting objects from a photo, but no surreal colours or crazy filters.

    I can participate this month! I JUST (as in last Monday) took this shot of the hangar doors that the space shuttles used to be prepped in at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. I took this shot to get a sense of perspective. The doors are on the left side of the building - the flag you see on the front side of the building is over 30 stories tall, and the trees are over 20 ft tall. It was a MASSIVE structure.

    Thanks @Shaun(OfTheDead) ; there seems to be lots of interesting subjects like this in French towns and villages. I wish I had had more time to find others but the family only let me have an hour to myself at a location.

    Wow! I like that you included the trees for a sense of scale. Nice!

    What would really have sold it was a human somewhere in the frame.

    If there would have been anyone out(it was 95+F out), I would have. I do have a picture the tour guide suggested of a set of 10ft tall doors - against the size of the building, they look like a mouse hole.

    It is a nice door. It is the type of an old door.
