Very intriguing image. I like the lighting.

I would try to reduce the highlight reflection on the box to balance out the overall context.

Good image

I'm afraid i'm struggling to tell what the subject is. Is it an ashtray. That' the problem for me.

Hey Roddy. Okay, I've ruined my eyes but I've figured out what it is (large dish on a coffe table, with some books on the left hand side) ... Smile Anyway, although you've said it's a fluke and you've not yet got any software to play with, I really like the stark angles of this as it currently is. I know you've indicated that mods are welcome, so I've uploaded my take on it. I adjusted the Levels a bit to bring out some detail in the rest of the room, and cropped it to more of a square format as I think that suits the abstract nature better, and also gets rid of some unwanted clutter in the rest of the room. I added a 'grain' filter effect (like in the good ol' days of fast film!) to try and hide some of the bits I couldn't do anything with (like that highlight reflection on the book/box) and the radiator and curtains at the top of the image. Good luck when you do get some software ... your family won't see you for days! Smile

Actually, having uploaded the mod ... I now don't like it Sad It looks different to what it did on my screen, which may have something to do with the fact that I needed to upsize it slightly to fit with the uploading regs. The grain now looks golf-ball sized! I've just done another one which, although along the same lines (without the grain, but with the large highlight burned in a bit) I think looks better than the last dodgy effort.

thanks everyone for the comments and the mods (starting to get the lingo lol) one of the reasons i liked the image was that it is quite hard to work out and that it sort of floats if you understand.Tanyah that was the effect i chose in camera so obv grain on grain disnae work 2nd effort much better.

Ah, thanks for clarifying Rod. I obviously got the wrong end of the stick when you said it was a 'fluke' ... Grin I still like the graphic quality of your image, if only for the intrigue value!

Hi Rod Just found this shot while looking through your portfolio. I really like this shot it reminds me of some of the early still lifes from the 1930's. I know you said you were just playin around but its a good effect.
