Started as a black and white image. I then layed in colors on layers on top of the image.

The precarious moment,
Between knowing,
And suspecting,
Or even doubting,
Of what may open
Beyond the edge,
Of our perception.

You are becoming quite expert at effects. The treatment on the lock is terrific.

Fascinating processing! Did you step inside?

Absolutely love the colors and tone on this. Great interpretation, both artistically and intellectually.

The effect works really well. Gives it a great aged feel.

A really great job processing this, and I agree with JD, the opened lock is key detail.. Very good job matching the thought with the image!

the processing of the textures is superb

True, true...words work well with this image. I'll never tell my secrets!

Yes, and the lock is what makes the difference. Some are ready to release a bit, some are rusted and will never open.
Good rendering of the metal tones, and excellent illustration of what's behind.

Gorgeous textures/colours..the metal looks as though it might melt its so soft..great job

The textures are almost those of paint on canvas, Jenene. The subject, a padlock on an old door, is very ordinary, yet you have made an extraordinary image out of this content by limiting the palette, modulating the effect of light, and stressing an open lock and open door rather than the more typically seen locked door. You talk of secrets, yet you deliberately leave the door ajar, daring us to go beyond and discover them.
