Wonderful image, Linda – having the two windows open (and the view split by the horizon) really makes it, and I also like the curtains and chair back. A 🙂

Thank you, Adrian. If you clicked on the photo to see it bigger, you saw its flaws. I fussed around with it for a pretty long (for me) time, and I think I just wanted to move on. It’s still too noisy, among other things. But I’m happy you could respond to the composition, which is, after all, the main thing.

Yes, definitely, the composition – and the content of an image – are the main things, the quality, noise etc comes a long way second I think. Its different for professionals who have to get things 100% perfect for their clients – how glad I am not to be a professional! To me, the content of the image is the thing, the rest is peripheral.

For the blog I try to make sure that the technical shortfalls don’t distract from the content of the image. When, as I occasionally do, I print out a photo, I have to make sure I’ve worked on the technical aspects a lot more.

Absolutely fantastic! Great picture, great mood!

Thank you, Cecilia. Yes, this photograph was a lot about the mood, which happens early in the morning when there isn’t enough light to take a decent photograph. I guess I could have used a tripod and multiple exposures, but that’s not much fun (for me).

Oh, I love it. I remember photos from this place last year, right? This one is exquisite – the open windows or the foggy ones could have been enough, but together it’s heaven. And the chair invites us. I’m glad you included it, noise and all. I wasn’t aware of noise or any “flaws” until I clicked twice and saw it really big, and like Adrian said, the atmosphere is what it’s all about anyway.

I like that – restful, homely, peaceful. So easy to miss these little moments that happen daily. And condensation on the windows too, just like our house!

I agree, Andy. And I thought the condensation on the windows added a good touch. It does depend on the tree beyond it to become visible, though, I think.
