I had photographed a similar scene before and when I revisited it, the image really appealed to me. This is inside an old settler's log cabin with the door open letting light in on the rocking chair. My wife dropped a few leaves on the floor to add interest. It was a very overcast and rainy day so the light was muted by the weather.

This has a classic feel. I scored this high. I'll bet more sharpening would have elevated it's "score". Either way, I enjoy photographs such as this. It allows me to fill in the story. Well done.

Something makes me want to see a person in the chair. Might even be what you're going for. =) Overall, nicely done. 7
