Portrait: Terrace door

This is a door, possibly a faux door only there for decor. I don’t know. I never tried opening it. It was at the end of the terrace in our hotel. The terrace itself was very narrow, so to my eye it seemed to draw your attention to this door. That might be what the architect intended.

Portrait orientation works well with this photo, in my opinion, because the orientation focuses the viewers attention on the door while accentuating all the lines of the terrace leading your eye to the door. I think it also helps give you a feel for the narrow confines of the terrace.

The chair in the foreground also helps give the viewer a reference point, giving the viewer essentially a familiar object before moving on to the rest of the photo. I think without the chair, the photo would be more confusing on first glance.
