well, may be a DNMC shot but furniture is meant to be used and showing it empty just looked sooooo darn boring to me. I was doing this shot of the chair alone and my daughter wanted to be in some. she doesnt like to not be in the shots i take so I let her sit in it for a few just to appease her but when uplaoded them, the ones with her seemed so much more interesting that I couldnt enter an empty one. hope it still does well of course but I understand if it does not. this was a bit of a set up too. had to move the computer and desk, chair and a another massage chair to make room for this shot and use a giant extention cord to put a strobe out in the front yard to make the light through the window. also switched our usual curtains with ones from odysseys room since hers are lighter and better for this shot that what we had. ugh..i'm dreading pressing the submit button............... 4.8, here I come :(

oh yeah. I didn't realize the blinds were messed up until it was too late and everything was already back in place.

I love when you expect a 4.8 and get a 6.5. Granted, that has never happened to me, but I'm betting I'd love it... :-)

Maybe a Curtins Challenge would make some justice to this beautiful shot. This is one of the best photos of the last weeks. Congrats Crystal!

Wow! What a beautiful photo! I didn't get to this one in the voting, but I think I would have given it a deserving 10! I'm sorry this didn't get more recognition! Although top 15 and 6.57 isn't bad. It's just that to me, this looks like it ought to be one of the winners!

Wonderful! I think it exceeded 4.8 quite handily and should have been even higher. Note the commenters' score. Nice work as always.

lots of editing and composition feels slightly off balance but the strong contrast and rich hues help. 8

love the composition here, the sweep of the curtain draping over the figure in the chair. Wonderful all around. 9

has a very mystique atmosphere, as if she has been sitting there for a very long time and been forgotten. Very good lighting and PP

kind of cool, but maybe a profile of the model (moving the chair to the side) would work better.

I'm almost certain I know who the photog is on this one...we'll see if I'm right :-) Gorgeous work with the lighting. I love how the face is hidden and the textures overlap.

Movement, furniture, mystery, action! One of the best in the challenge, 9 from me.

This is a great photo, but I feel the focus is more on the child then it is on the chair.

Speechless. The 'negative' space should either be more or less, I think, (possibly contain other elements - tricky). 8 for now.
