This is rich and detailed, Ellie. I have always loved metal on wood and find myself wanting to trace my fingers over both. It "feels" heavy!
Such intricate detail. A great find for your camera, Ellie.
This picture shows that this church (it's door in particular) has seen alot of events in it's lifetime. I wonder what it can tell us if could talk? That would be interesting! I will definitely check out these links, Ellie! Thank you for all this wonderful information!
wonderfully rich detail in this photo, Ellie. I love the glimmer of a window in the background. Very nicely done!

This is a fascinating door. The details look like chess pieces and the doorknob looks just like a Celtic bracelet I have of a two-headed dragon with a golden ball between its (their) teeth. I 'm suprised to see this is on a Gothic door. I guess artists take inspiration from everywhere.
Excellent detail in this shot
Great wood texture
I love the wood grain in this as well as the detail on the brass. If it was my photo I would really tightly crop it to make it more abstract, but that's just me. I think it works well the way you have done especially with the hint of the interior of the church making me want to enter and explore. Nice shot!

This is interesting. The ornamentation doesn't fall into a pattern that I can easily identify. Are those chessmen on the edge of the door a common theme?
The comment above is from me, not Ted. I am using his computer and didn't realize that the fields in the comment form were filled in.

Beautiful wood and brass/bronze work, and I like the way you have chosen to present it, Ellie. I look forward to your Sunday shots.
