.: DREARY MESS :. by eeZoME .: DREARY MESS :. by eeZoME
I'd like to highlight two among many of 'illuminating' comments I received on this deviation when I asked about the kind of impression this picture makes..

"I like to think of it as choice. First we have a set of doors, then a very lit door which reclaims my attention and symbolizes the right path to take, the light one. But then there is this center door, dark and mysterious, the path of the curious one. I think it has a lot of power for being in the center, it's like the forbidden apple. Definitely not a path for everyone." ~hugofranca

“I chose “.: DREARY MESS :.” because it’s a very dramatic piece that I felt adhered well to the Rule of Odds. Giving us multiple doorways in our field of vision not only creates an interesting shot, but it relaxes our eye, which is immediately drawn to the lit doorway. It allows our eye to wander to the other doors and not be forced to focus on just one. Going by the “comfort” rule of the Rule of Odds, humans tend to like a photo that portrays our wishes, humans like to have multiple ways out of a place, it makes us feel more in control. Taking this into account this piece is very successful.” ~ #Eyecatchingphotos Rule of Odds Contest judge fav.me/d4hlph1

I see the middle door as the path that is easiest to take, that most take. The path to the bright door is a path that is harder to take, someone would need willpower to go off the main road.

That's pretty "dark" point of view compared to previous ones. I think it makes sense thu, it matches this phrase once said "we tend to do the right thing after exhausting every other option" Most people would say the lit one is the "right" one, nevertheless, the very same people may not go for it because of willpower issue as you just mentioned!

Whoever is able to do the bad is equally able to do the good....
It's the red line above ,that caught my eye as an indicator to balance our limits ...
or lets say as a compass to our aims and choices ...
without doubt wonderful shadows and concept... !!!
Well done!
