I adore the tone of this shot. So warm and inviting. It's everything I always imagined a front porchlight to be!

Not-so-obvious indeed! Then again, that's you! And it wouldn't be anywhere near as fun if you shot the obvious stuff. Mind you, even an obvious perspective through your lens is anything but routine.

Happy sigh...I could look at your pics for an age.

Are you that tall, or is it hanging that low, or were you standing on something? How did you get this angle?

Indrani said...

Yeah, I too was wondering: are you that tall?
Nice shot!

Mojo said...

No actually I'm not quite that tall. Me and my tripod climbed up in the bed of my pickup to get this angle. Mystery solved!

For some reason, there's this feeling of anticipation to this shot. Like the moment when a patron pauses before entering the geisha's abode...

Sublime.

Maureen Hayes said...

The lighting is just perfect and it gives me a happy feeling, warm, safe. . Of course I LOVE your pics so maybe that's part of it.

I love this shot. Lovely light, interesting shadows and depth, reflections all over, and a warm overall tone. Very nice. :D

Happy Thanksgiving. That light might bring dinner guests to your door tomorrow night.

Great night shot. Those are so hard to do. It makes me want to knock on the door, come in, sit by a fire and drink a mug of coco.

What I am most thankful for: http://tinyurl.com/6cdeb3

Such a pretty shot. The light is mellow and inviting. Happy Thanksgiving.

It's funny how many people are remarking on the angle of the shot and wondering how tall you are. Photographers routinely lay down or twist into weird positions to get the perfect angle - to me, whatever it takes. And you've really found an inviting shot here. It actually has implied motion in it, as the viewer wants to proceed in through the door.

Wonderful picture. I sometimes find it a challenge to photograph a light source at night without making it too bright and the background too dark.
