I would have liked to see a bit more of the reflection - but other than that, just wonderful

I like it, but I don't know why, but the horizon looks a little skewed...maybe it's just an illusion? 7

Hey!

Ok, you wanted me to have a look at this (finally got around to it - it's been a busy time!)

Some very interesting geometry in this shot - the interaction of horizontal and vertical lines all over the place looks pretty cool. The combination of the noise and the right chair blending into the horizontal stripes makes it look unreal, almost like an apparition rather than a real object. Old ways indeed. So I like the subject matter and the style.

The composition doesn't particularly work for me though. The centred window looks static and oddly cut off, and the directions of some of the diagonal beams make the picture feel tilted clockwise when viewed, even though it's not. I think the picture would benefit greatly from losing that empty left bit (I tried cropping it, and it works a lot better for me).

PP suggestions - since this is in basic, the options are rather limited. What I thought worked is sharpening this at about 45px, 30% usm to bring out the contrast more. I also liked the look of desating it very slightly (monochrome channel mixer layer, 100% red channel, 15% opacity), but that's more a matter of taste, I think.

Anyway, hope this helps.

Comment by Charlene:
Such an ethereal feel to this. I don't know how you got the effect you did, it almost looks like you walked into a long abandoned place and slammed the door hard. In doing so, you worked up some dust throughout... but it is so effective. I just love it. And is that a horse outside the window? I'm telling myself yes, and loving it more.

This is just calling out for some dual-exposure HDR! Nice rustic scene, but the noisy photo lets it down.

Comment by kauisyndrome:
Nice idea. I'd crop the left side out to the paddle, to make the rule of thirds apply to the composition.
