Simply Curves

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Simply Curves
Simply Curves
I took this capture in Passau on the Danube. We broke away from the tour to roam the streets and I was looking for something different. I thought this tunnel would give me an exercise in Element of Design. I liked the contrast in texture from the cobblestones to the white concrete and the colored door at end of the tunnel. I also composed to let the curves of the tunnel lead to the central point of interest of the door. Comments welcome.
