Marty Straub May 28, 2010

LOL, even better (funnier) getting the wide angle from your pov view, which gives the illusion there is actually nothing behind the door. #8649257

Eivor Kuchta May 28, 2010

I thought they were fake first, but that's probably just the wide angle, making them look like just fronts. That would be very bad luck otherwise, if you really need one. Nice colors and composition! #8649660
