Wasn't very inspired for this week - hopefully this will do. Even though it's "just a chair", I do like the way it turned out and the mood of the shot.

Neatimage, enhanced the vignette, layer mask the chair, desaturate bkg, saturate chair, clone out outlets on floor, couple other imperfections, more contrast in the bkg, usm, burn the floor to complete the vignette, resize, final sharpening.

I think a tighter crop on the chair and desk would have been better, nice mood to the photo.

The good lighting and nice strong red saves this image for me. I feel it would be much more convincing with an old desk of character with some essential business props and the usual desk top clutter, or am I missing the point of your intentions entirely, sorry if I am. Good luck

I love this picture, it is simple and yet straight on. It reminds me of my Grandpa's office and made me very sentimental

A beautiful feel to this, and the red color goes perfectly with the over all B/W tone of the image. 9.
