Doors

I would like to see your photos of doors. The image can include doors made of any material such as wood, metal and glass. They could be close-ups of doors or a wider view, but photos must have the door as the focus. Entries can be in black and white or colour.

Visit 20 architectural marvels around the globe

From apartment buildings to ancient masterpieces, these structures offer glimpses into city life around the world.

Building design can inspire a sense of place, tell tales of the past, and offer glimpses into the lives of a city’s residents. And although the impact of grand structures such as Manhattan’s Art Deco skyscrapers or Antoni Gaudi’s eclectic buildings in Barcelona is undeniable, it’s often the smaller, ordinary buildings that tell the truths of day-to-day life. For the attentive eye, the symmetry of a store window can be just as illuminating as the spectacularly painted ceiling of a mosque—and both places have their own story to tell.

A view of the intricate ceiling of the Music Hall in Iran’s Ali Qapu grand palace. The unusual cutouts in the ceiling are both beautiful and functional—they were designed to dampen echoes and enhance acoustics for musical performances.

Pyongyang, North Korea
Colorful buildings surround the Monument to Party Founding in North Korea’s capital city. The monument recognizes the Workers’ Party of North Korea, and uses a hammer, paintbrush, and sickle to represent workers, intellectuals, and farmers, respectively.

Point of View

Not all photographs need to be taken from our eye level – nor should they.
Changing your viewpoint is not only a great way to enhance composition, but it might also make your photograph stand out from all of the other eye-level views made of a similar subject.
Use your freedom to your aesthetic advantage and make images from creative viewpoints.
