Greetings From the Critique Club

First Impressions:
I loved this the first time I saw it in the challenge and it is no different for me now.

Technical (Comp, lighting, color, focus):
simple and beautiful the way the light falls into the room from the window; the barrel, frame and board are wonderfully perfect there in the center, highlighted by that soft falling light - so simple yet so elegant amidst the disarray of the old house; the tones of the photo are marvelous; at first I thought the light from the other window just outside the door was distracting, but that's not it at all, instead of being distracting it is leading us deeper into the photo, making me wonder what else is in this building

if the challnege of a free study is to grab our attention you have certainly accomplished that

artisticlly? not much I can say that hasn't already been said in your comments
emotionally? well tanguera's comment says it all

What can I say here? I really don't know how to summarize this. Beautiful is not enough and yet awesome is too much! This photo is perfectly done in light, tone, artistic and emotional expression. WELL DONE! :-)

I could stare at this for hours. As I look at it now, it could even be a bird's-eye perspective, looking down on this scene. Just brilliant. And SO happy it landed on the fp.

Love all the rough textures; they speak of history.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: Utterly wonderful coloration and light. I don't know how you've managed to boost the tonal contrast whilst maintaining a diffused look but it really, really works. I'd love to see your workflow on this one. The room and the way you've composed the shot makes for a masterful image.

Critical stuff: Nothing at all.

Overall: Lovely stuff.

Stunning! It evokes a sense of zen amidst all the decay. I really like the lighting and the understated processing. 9

Man oh man. This is not just a physical place, but an alternate dimension, a dream, an apparition. It is both the arrival and departure room, the room with the answers, the room with the questions. It is hideously stunning, and beautifully decrepit. Where you walk through a door and float out a window, where you stare in, where you live and die.

Clearly, this image inspires me :-) LOVE IT!!!
