Kubrick's Door by Autopenguin Kubrick's Door by Autopenguin
I stayed at a Sydney hotel last week, an old building with the path from reception to my room being a long, twisted journey that culminated in a long, narrow corridor with my room's door right at the end, beckoning to me.

Getting home from a gig at 3am, it occurred to me that I felt like I'd stepped onto the set of The Shining. I snapped a quick photo on my iPhone and processed it with the freebie app from Mill Film, and posted that to Facebook as a late-night gag. And people seemed to actually like it.

This is a version shot with a DSLR, and processed in Photoshop. It's still a snapshot, but dammit, it's an ARTY snapshot :)

Many thanks to Richard for the loan of the D90.

Good moody piece ... :)

Love the perspective and the washed out highlights in stages down the length of the corridor.

Nicely caught :)

Well, I blew out the highlights deliberately during my Extreme Photoshop (TM) processing, but this is pretty much how it looked to the eye at 3am :)
