  1. Nice job on what looks to be quite a difficult kitchen to photograph, in terms of both lighting and composition. A few things jump out at me: My eye goes straight to the reflection on the cupboards straight ahead…not sure if it’s from flash or from a window behind the camera, but might have tried to either block the light or reposition the flash (same with the reflection on the upper part of the doors). With the neighboring house so close by, think I’d have let the windows go quite a bit brighter. Would also have removed the airplane from the bar. Also wouldn’t mind seeing just a little more control of the super-hot reflection on the right end of the bar…that area is a little distracting, especially since it’s right in the center of the frame. And this must be some sort of an illusion, but it looks like the faucet on the right is facing backwards. Lastly, might have tried a little fake tilt-shift here, for a touch less ceiling and a little more floor.

  2. Forgot to add: Perhaps raise the camera a couple inches, for a better view into the kitchen? (These sort of extra-high eating bars are so difficult to compose around!) Raising the camera would necessitate an even more aggressive fake tilt-shift, to bring some of the floor back into view. But on the plus side, I think that raising the camera would help to reduce some of the distortion that is currently happening with the ceiling.

  3. agree with julie! i had to zoom in to even make it the plane... but i did notice something that kept drawing my eye to that area besides the blown highlights and glare in the island... this is where in my mind, a photographer has got to have some light on hand to mitigate situations like this... dark cooked treatments and bright bright escape light maybe even reflecting off something outside to make it even more of a high data range shot... sometimes we just have to shoot abs it’s but the right time at all... it’s RE after all... but that’s where the tricks of the trade are learned and utilized the most... the highlights overall need to be tamed abs the windows come off as really dark and high contrast to me... also a little more light would help with some of the colors here... i also keep wondering if a tighter shot, not worrying so much about the entry doors to right would show off the kitchen better... I always think when shooting, “if i could only use one shot of this kitchen, is this it or do i have another option?”
