  1. This is nice. I like where this is going - it's a great idea. I really like the overall framing, and I think the plant on the left and the basket on the right also help the very "framed-in" composition. Nice work for seeing this composition!

    Execution-wise, I have a few notes. I prefer the camera to be lower. It would create a really nice silhouette of the clawfoot tub (the main event in the bathroom) that really accentuates its shape and make it larger in the frame by simultaneously making the floor smaller. Related to camera height, I also don't see much value in seeing into the tub as much as we are. Lastly, the saturation is a bit heavy-handed for my taste, particularly in the reds and greens, and the contrast is a touch overdone, but that might be related to the saturation levels.

  2. Nice. I love the light here. Also like this straight-on view. To me, the camera feels a touch high for a tub-dominant scene, so wonder how this might look/feel if it were lowered 1-2 inches? (just read Garey's comments about the tub...yes! perfectly expressed). Also, assuming those are French doors, maybe close them just enough to reveal some of the glass panes? For my taste, the colors are a little too saturated. Lastly, wouldn’t mind seeing some of the ceiling shaved off.

  3. My colleagues have touched on the points I wanted to mention: camera height, saturation, contrast. Would love to see the plant and basket framing the tub extended slightly to give a little more space there. Less ceiling (just below the lights) seems like a good idea to me. It was refreshing to see such a different and unique space this month. Healthy amount of drama here that I appreciate. Just a couple tweaks and I think this one gets elevated to the next level.

  4. Very cool shot.. but the color control and contrast control really is distracting me... too much red and yellow over saturation in the wood and in the view IMHO... also, shadows and blacks are just too crushed here overall, also on railing in window... love the comp though and with a little crop off top I think it works although, I might have chosen to lower a tad. I do however love that view and the quality of the tree... beautiful! So I think if the photographer had used a little more lighting here to help control the exposure and colors etc...this would be an amazing photo... loving the overall idea and light direction, just need a little help on preserving some details.
