Fliss - the gateway is lovely - the colours are beautiful. As you know, I know very little about photography, so I can't comment with any kind of intelligent critique - but the colours are beautiful.
(also apologies for brevity and not being around much - I've been floored by a horrible summer flu/cold and simultaneously commissioned for 10 (!) images, so it's a bit frantic).
Actually, your door image was the perfect antidote to frantic. Long-drawn out time, beckoning, slightly decrepit sense of antique wonder. Just the thing. A bit 'Secret Garden'.
