In my favourite style of only shooting pieces of things (which I have shamelessly stolen from Tara ;p), these doorways are at Westminster, also known as the Houses of Parliament. I'd actually have gotten a bigger and better shot had there not been a wrought iron fence all around it, forcing me to shoot between the bars, so photography loses in the battle between security and art...

They certainly don't make them like they used to.
An impressive capture nevertheless. I think we've all had that difficulty from time to time.

Absolutely gorgeous Denise! I'm sure Tara wouldn't mind a bit!
This is really great and the architecture stellar.

Beautiful capture! There is absolutely nothing like 'old world' architecture – especially the stone work – and this building is only 140 years old.

Like your partial view...it makes me want to see more and sparks my imagination. Fences can be a pain!

Oh, Gothic and rococo all the way in this sterling highly textured foto, Denise, sans the iron fence, of course! All this with a surfeit of repetition, to boot.

Oh well ... I love it, of course! :D Wonderful angle, gorgeous limited color palette, beautiful light. Actually, I think I'd crop it down a bit ... LOL!

I"m still back in November, and I'm skipping images right & left...this isn't easy. But I wanted to comment on this because you've made the very staunch "upward reaching" language of gothic architecture both oddly warm and almost 'plastic'. (Plastic, as in 'touchable', 'mold-able'---which was what plastic originally meant.) Your highlights on the typically gray arches & tracery, their contrast with all that gothic shadow, and your choice to 'top' the image off with a row of lighter-colored foils atop the arches all make this feel like it was 'poured' into the space as much as built. It's almost liquid, in other words. Now I know that the gothic designers wanted some liquidity, but this feels almost mold-able: A wonderful use of light & plasticity on a stone facade. And the grill at the top fits right into the verticality of the shot, I don't find it an intrusion at all.

I do understand what you're saying about tara's way with 'excerpts' (of which I'm a great fan too!). But of course you both do it in your own unique ways, and this is somehow an arch-denise image. (No pun intended, with 'arch'.) The florals & grotesques, atop the arches, seem almost poured on in fresh plaster. Your light is really transformative here.
