I'm a bit worried that this won't appear with the tonal depth or sharpness of the RAW image and prints I've made of it.

JPEG compression and USM aren't doing it any favours!

Submitting anyway to a jury of my peers :-)

Stoic and quite country but most of all a lovely study in texture and lighting. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

Nice country theme and a good black and white. The composition seems a bit distracting with all the elements being up against the wall but you probably could not help that. 7

Looks like my living room, but I guess it comes with marrying a knitter/spinner. Nice image. I like the directional lighting & lovely B&W tones. Good work.
