Love the compostion and the sepia treatment here! Your image is a little tilted though. There's an easy fix for this in Photoshop!

Soft focus mixes well with the soft lighting. The double framing with the doors leading back to the bed is quite well done - though I'd maybe prefer not to have cropped the arrangement on the wall. There doesn't seem to be any real center of attention or point to his image - it seems like a great stage for an interesting picture to be made upon though.

Nice bed, wish my bedroom was that nice and that I had a door! The softness of the shot offers a feeling of tranquility and peace, just what a bedroom should be. The lighting is a bit too yellow for my taste, maybe if it was toned down just a bit, even a little darker? I started at a four on this shot, the right side is also a bit of a distraction, maybe a slightly tighter crop? I'm raising it to a 7

at first, the yellow cast seemed a bit off to me.. but after looking at it longer, it gives it more of that "sacred" feeling than it would without it. nice lighting.

Nice light and shot. A bit tilted or maybe perspective distortion

I look at this shot and go. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... the tones are spot on and the slight softness is quite appropriate here. I don't know why but the black dorr on the right is distracting to me.... still a great shot! 8

Very good idea and very well done. I like the dreamy state. Very appealing bedroom and I can see why it is your sanctuary.

I love this! my bedroom has always been my personal sacruary. I had debated doing a shot like this but I would have had to cleen and make the bed.

is that a difusing/warming filter i see?

soft focus works very well to make this room look inviting and so warm. I would crop this picture so you only see the one door. The handle on the right-side door is distracting. Half (or one-third) door and half (or two-thirds) bedroom would be a simpler and more effective composition.

I like the warm light, a very welcoming room. I'd crop on the right the dark door doesn't serve much but to frame the right side of the picture.

Nice take on the challenge. I like the warm colors and the 'dreamy' effect of the blur. Good luck.

I like your interpretation. Soft focus? works well here. Nice shot.

Sacred seems to mean quite different things to different people, so in that context, this does meet the challenge. I really like the soft focus, and the "warm glow" feeling of the shot. However, overall, the shot does not have a lot of impact for me. There is really nothing in particular that serves as a "subject" or place of interest to focus on.

Excellent composition and the lighting gives it a lovely warm feeling.
