This was my childhood bedroom, which I shared with my three younger brothers.

This was where my Auntie enjoyed her last few days, refusing to spend it in the hospital. The curtains were hers.

A decade later.

Thank you for the appreciation.

Awesome toning, wonderful contrast of the desolate worn pad and the still delicate curtain.

The processing really makes this shot.

What I like - composition, I want that fan!!

What I don't like - not a fan (pardon the pun) of the "vintage" processing

The vintage processing work well for this style of image.

This image has caused me to stop and pay attention. That means it is in my 7-10 voting band. (Voted earlier)

Additionally, it is highly interesting/eclectic meaning it keeps me here long enough to offer a longer comment and a vote of 8 or more.

This is one of my 10s - I like it very much. Furthermore I think it enriches the DPC collective portfolio. Put simply, I wish we saw more stuff like this. Let me tell you why it pushes all the right buttons for me:

1. Gorgeous coloration. Flat out gorgeous.

2. I really like the ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' RKT blowing curtain motif.

3. The story of the foam mattress coupled with the title is compelling and slightly haunting.

4. The overall effect is relaxing and ominous. Not a combination of emotions that are often conveyed together.

Much greater than the sum of its parts. Lovely stuff indeed.
