Rotated, Levels, Curves and plug in "blue satin" by virtual photographer. I purposely left in part of the drawers and part of the clothes hanging - right side of photo. I'm sure many will think I should have cropped this side.

family life maybe, but doesn't say "family" to me. Am I the only one to say this? If I were shoot a laundry room, I would hope it would turn out this good, I can smell the Bounce

I like the use of blur in this picture, however I wish it was a bit lighter to get some more of the detail in the back.

I like the image, I like the tones. I don't like the general blur on the image (gothic glow maybe?). Will comment more after viewing on a CRT - sometimes the LCD makes things look funny.... Okay, I'm viewing on a CRT. Didn't make much different. Still love the tones used but the laundry basket has no detail and the blown part of the washer really forces my attention there. The best detail is the coats hanging in the back. 6 - good luck in the challenge!

I like the composition. The highlights and shadows seema bit too contrasty. I do like the soft focus and the duotone. Nice work.

Interesting shot and I like the use of the blue tone ...

Now this says family.
I think you could have made the hamper and the open dryer more of the focus. The clothes handing and the breaker box distract me.

you gave great attention to the details in this shot, nice play between light and darkness.

This is lacking a true focal point. I like the title and the blue filter, but maybe find one thing and really pull the eye toward it. The laundry basket is too dark to truly be a point of interest. Maybe just the jackets hanging with one for each family member? Hope this helps.

Love the composition and blue tones. There does seem to be a pretty bright glare from the white in the upper left that is a bit distracting (IMHO), but otherwise I think it's a great shot. Perfectly meets the challenge. 9

Whites are blown, light is harsh, no detail in the dark areas. A more even lighting and perhaps fill-flash would have corrected those problems. That being said... this image still does not say "Family" - only laundry.

Every family does laundry. Cool. Looks dark and uninviting.

family laundry....a bit too soft on the focus, but would not do well as sharp focus either.

what could portray a family better than laundry? :)
