Assignment 9 - Doorknobs

Original poster
September's assignment is Doorknobs - I suspect handles or door 'furniture' of any kind will fly though. The idea is that members will go out and try to find their own way of interpreting the monthly theme thus improving their photographic eye. Posting is open to all MR members, and encouraged.

You must have taken the picture yourself between 11 and 30 September 2006. If you took a picture that fits the assignment but was taken earlier, then post it in the Gallery: Doorknobs thread instead.

Anyone can enter from those with (D)SLRs from P&S to cameraphones although they should be pictures that you think are good rather than just snapshots. The goal is not to 'win' but to share the enjoyment of taking pictures and learn from others.

Some basic rules on commenting (basically be nice!) are listed. Changes to the rules should be discussed there just as remarks about the topic(s) chosen should be kept in the poll thread. Let's keep this thread just pictures and comments on them if possible

Post your pictures in this thread by the end of September with a title and we'll start commenting (make sure you title your comments referencing the pic you are commenting on)

noob posting a knob

Hi all, this is my first post on these forums. The subject of doorknobs was strangely fascinating to me, so i wanted to participate.

If you shot this in 2005 rather than within the past couple of days, then this belongs in the Doorknob gallery rather than the current assignment...

That said, lovely shot!
thank you, but don't worry I follow the rules.

It was an attempt at humor. The door knob was installed in 2005, (a vintage model), the picture was taken last night, 9/12/06. The exif data should be with it if you open in Preview or PS you can check it. : )

I really like the light in this. And I especially like your "n00b posting a knob" title. :p

Thanks, Snap! I didn't think to check the EXIF and I probably overlooked the part where you said the doorknob was installed in 2005! Mea culpa! :)
I went back and edited the post, adding the date and camera information, you didn't overlook anything. : )

In all honesty, I didn't think anyone would get a great photo of a doorknob, but you just did. Nice. :) Love the lighting.

Thanks. If I had known it was going to come out so well, I would have wiped it first - seems to have a few smudges on it :)

My first entry

Fuji F10

Taken this morning at a Best Western near Toledo, Ohio.

I converted it to grayscale, rotated it, and shrank it down to fit under 200k.

I'd appreciate any comments...

Any chance you could take the same picture again, but not cut off the far doorknob? Cutting things off like that is a big no-no. Please fix it and it'll be darn-near perfect!

Daniel.
