For my "Empty Room" image, I went to the "Aussie World" tourist attraction, near where we live.

Behind the famous "Ettamongah Pub", at Aussie World, I found my perfect empty room. It was huge, and completely empty.

The old tin corrigated patched walls, along with the polished wooden floor, were so early Australian. It was like I was walking into the past. Totally unique, and such a wonderful national treasure.

I found a old wine barrel, and had it taken into the room. I placed it next to the tall timber pole, towards the front, and started taking photos.

This is the result, of my perfect day, in an empty room.

I think that you should sharpen up the barrel some...it is a little out of focus.

Maybe the crop and resize, but pic seems to blurry to me.

Seems overprocessed or sharpened.

The placement of the barrel makes it look like it's part of the beam and part of the building.

Great place...and it has a stage and a bar. Hmmm...sounds like a few sore heads have resulted from this place.

Marvelous colours, but the rooms seems to be tilting towards the right. I love, absolutely love the right part of the photograph; the table/bardisk, the colours of the wall, the ceiling and whatever it is hanging from the ceiling, the stage and the steps. I think I would have cropped it somewhere in the middle, or maybe a little to the left from the midde.
But it is a shot with stunning colours, a beautiful room.

what's the difference between 'take one thing into an empty room' and 'find a basically empty room with one thing in it'? sorry to be anal, but really... nice shot, even if a bit over-processed.

I love the rustic, nostalgic feel to this empty room! The barrel adds a nice touch, and the rich colors are awesome! Great job!!!

I think there is too much information on this image

A little oversharpened (I think)... maybe it would work better to move the barrel out from the post and photograph it to make it stand out.
