An outstanding image and the envy of any photographer who takes his art seriously. This is simply an image that invites the viewer as it weaves a spell of sheer awe. Here the light motif is exploited to produce this one of a kind effort. One of the few images where light truly plays an unrivaled role to set off the imagination. This was my unsidputed pick for this challenge.

Congratulations on your RED.

Now that is a very fine photograph and a sublime piece of art. Far and away my favourite (in a challenge in which I did not vote). It's simply a brilliant idea, superbly executed. How good? I think is was underestimated and misunderstood even by many who commented favourably on it!

very cool effect. did you consider cropping just after the ceiling light stream hits that first light? having it with the break feels odd to me. overall nice shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

'8' - Very nice light capture. Criticism; for me, I think that if you had removed all the tables and chairs from the frame, also that pin up board, it would have made this photo more dramatic and a better photograph in my opinion. Obviously this may not have been possible. Also, I think b/w might look nice here. If you had cropped out the top (ceiling) this would still be a good photograph, albeit a different feel.

The flaring light coming from the door was a great compositional tool. It would be a really nothing photo if not for the lovely lighting. 9

Powerful use of light in your shot. Great job. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2005 04:00:21 PM
It's the light pattern that makes this shot. Great composition. Without it, this would be boring, but you made a leap and got a very solid entry out of it. 8

Great idea....I like the way the light from the door is blocked by the light fixture at the top....
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/31/2005 02:04:40 AM
The brightness seems a little dull around the chairs/tables....but the hightlight of light looks great!

A striking image wherein light fans to pull in the eyes. One of the best images in this challenge. Bumping up.

I really liked the shot, but wish your depth of field would have been a little more as it seems a bit out of focus (unless that is what you where trying to do). A 7
