Great desolate feel to it

shot!

Lovely light! Neat stuff. I like this one a lot.

Love the tea-stained texture. The light soft light coming in through the windows gives the picture a warm feel. It seems this is an older building and the processing on the picture certainly brings that out.

How much do you want for the apartment? I'd take it just for that window and the light. And how do you tea stain a photo? I can stain fabric, but I doubt it's the same process...

Wow! I love the textured look you gave it, gives it a grungy look & leaving the vaccuum there was a definite good idea.

I really like the pp on this. Maybe you can do a tutorial for people like me who don't know how to photoshop! :)

Fun shot. I hope the view out the window is nice. The light through the windows is great!

But ohhhhhhh what a COOL apartment that will clean up to be! I love those old places with the wood floors and bay windows.

Show us the cleaned up version too, okay?

I really like this photo.

The joys of being a grown up. :) That is a cool looking room

They way you have depicted it, it looks quite romantic, though I know it couldn't have been - cleaning other people's dirt is never fun. Great photo, though. Love the filtery thing.

JUST had to do that (in the apartment over the garage of the house we used to live in; we sublet the apartment). Oh my gosh the nastiness. I couldn't bring myself to photograph it.

This is a gorgeous shot. I love that room, with the light and the floors, and your treatment is awesome.

OH I LOVE THIS. AS in Hazel the maid? Or is that the brand. Excellent light, tones and editing. Really well done. So nostalgic.

Looks like I'm peeking in a window of old bubble glass from the other side of the house. Lovely image and I love the vacume in the floor. Processing is spectacular!

good ol' shirley booth...


Ahhh....that Hazel. Sadly, I am old enough to remember actually watching Hazel on TV as a child, although I think that it was in reruns by that time. :/ How funny that she would pop into your head as you went about your landlording chores. :}

Well it looks like you have a nice place to rent out, those windows are great.

Love the light coming through the windows. Really has an 'old time' feeling with the texture. Nice.

Love the processing.... love the light too.... it definitely has the feeling of being abandoned

I love your processing! This could be an image of a parlor from Victorian times, if not for the vacuum cleaner bringing one back to the present day. Makes me think of a haunted house, I really love it!

Now this I like, especially the feeling of empty space.....
Love the processing that you have done with this one.....
The soft textures and overlay really suits this composition perfectly.....

Been there, done that too (the landlord thing). Wouldn't want to do it again, but it was indeed a good life experience. This shot is awesome! Great composition and light, and that overlay is definitely working here. Man, look at all those windows! What a great room! By the way, does hazel refer to the vacuum cleaner?
