  1. I like this a lot. The light has a nice feel to it. The vertical format seems a great choice for this space. I kind of want to see the camera moved a small step to the right with a pan left. That would help center the light fixture over the table, and would eliminate some of the crowding/overlapping of elements in the scene (the near-intersection of the chair on the left with the edge of the island/cabinet; the blending of the greenery on the table with the floor plant behind it). Wish the shadow beneath the side table were a little softer…it feels overly heavy, given the quality of light in the rest of the room. Still, a very pretty shot.

  2. I agree with a lot of what Julie said. The portrait orientation is the right choice for capturing that gorgeous ceiling detail. Good control in the top of the ceiling, preserving the wainscoting detail in what was certainly the brightest part of the room. I know it's not always a choice, but I think removing that corner plant for this shot would help let the flowers on the table shine. The shadow under the side table is heavy relative to the other beautiful soft shadows under the table. I like the peak of kitchen (?) on the left, but leads me to believe this is more of a breakfast area than a "formal dining room". Love the way the backs of the chairs allow the scene to show through. Normally a chair with some much back to the camera wouldn't work, but it does here for me. A pretty shot that artfully shows off some very cool details of this space. Nicely done!

  3. Very nice work. Agree with the excellent lighting, portrait orientation and all that Julie and Michael have already said.

  4. I really like this composition a lot. I see Julie's point about stepping to the right slightly, and I think she might be right. But I didn't notice it myself until I read it. I also agree about the shadow under the console table being a bit hard, and it is a disconnect from the rest of the image. All in all, though, I think this is a really nice shot with a lot of nice choices made. In the end, this isn't a formal dining room so no points from me just on a technicality. It's one of my favorite images this month though, and I just wanted to comment on it. Nice work.
