On the second panel if you have to write"open" then you may need to reconsider how you compose the shot, or at least have more confidence that the character appears to be opening a door. It's something you do often and I don't think you need it as often as you think. Show, don't tell as the saying goes.
@James; Yeah that's the problem of just making these things up as they go along. I really don't need so many establishing shots of inner geography or constantly opening or closing. Though text like that is meant to be blatant. I'm soon considering one that just says 'Sound Effect' at some point.
