Congratulations on 10th place in this challenge!

Great subject for the challenge, works really well, although I am wondering if this just happened to be out there in the middle of the countryside, or if you placed it there.

The composition is good, I particularly like the low perspective, but for me the processing spoils it a little. There is a rather unnatural look, I assume coming from the use of the shadow/highlight function. It leaves the sky particularly looking quite odd. Sort of like using tonemapping, but not to the same extent. (I know I never quite manage to get the sky right when using any kind of tone mapping/shadow/highlight adjustments).

I gave this a 6 during voting, because of the processing. Otherwise it would have been an easy 7 or even 8.


Thanks a lot Sarah for your good comment. I took this shot in a little phototrip to the countryside. I found this old chair in a abandoned house and placed it there in the nature. When I came home I had a very short time to edit before I had to submit. Thanks again.

Sensational. The lighting on the chair is perfect, and the pp'ing is terrific. What an amazing sky. And the low perspective really adds the "wow" factor.
