Hello again Janine, greetings from the Critique Club!

For your photo:

Composition
You targeted a very vintage look with your picture. Although the chair is one of the subjects in the photo, I believe it's not the main one. I see a lot more relevance in the bed than in the chair. The way it was cropped does not leave much room for the chair.

Technique
One of the reasons why the photo has such a vintage feel if because of the low aperture, at f/25 the softness is very intense, and in this photo it worked perfectly, to add to the overall look. Although the chair is a bit underexposed, the shadows are very consisted and well formed.

Processing
Good choice for the sepia, the border adds also a lot to the image. Probably if the corner where the chair is was brightened a bit, it could give more impact to that part.

Overall an almost 6 score photo, that quite nicely fits the challenge.

Take care,
Joao

too dark in the corner by the chair, all detail is lost; I do like the composition and the texture of the image.

I love the tones and good clarity but I find the image a tiny bit cramped looking.
