I like ver 2 but there both nice,
V2 for me Darryl, superb image,
Both are wonderful images, great photographs! Congrats!
Really like both images - very atmospheric. The colours on the floor/chair and walls are great but personally not keen on colours in the window. Have you considered combining both and perhaps having a B&W version with colours on the chair/floor?
Two great images. Lovely lighting. I like V1 best - has a real atmospheric feel.
Two good pictures, prefer the B&W version.
both are good V1 has the edge as it gives atmosphere to the strkness of the surroundings excellent
I like the colour especially on and around the chair,
but I love the mono.
Think 'surfinsurveyor's' idea is a good one.
Both images offer excellent image, if I had to make a choice between the two, I think I'd go with the mono....Good stuff mate.
Spot on exposure. Love the contrast and textures on V1.
The mono is the most pleasant to view. The color goes for the gritty reality. Very different moods in these.
The monochromatic makeover is simply stunning, a real masterpiece, so very perfectly composed, a sheer delight to view and admire greatly. As for the colour a very worthy runner up.
I didn't even look at the title and i thought to myself "its a bit like mastermind"
I normally go for colour Darryl,
but in this case mono I think.
Seems the ''grottier'' of the two !!
Hi Darryl. They both work very well. Difficult to choose between them.
A well-thought out composition and especially good monochrome. The blotchy walls make an excellent contrast with the clean lines of the window, chair and shadow. Excellent!
They are both so good but I prefer V1 Darryl. Composition is stunning.
Cathedral-like splendour plus magnificent grot. Normally b&w would win hands down - except for that wonderful coloured light on the floor in V2. Can't decide.
Both are great but V2 wins for me........... great damp fusty grotty colours
Daryyl. Great to see you are back in doors! I like both images because the coloured version has a limited colour palette so as such not to be so different. Strong composition, sharp and dramatic. Like a film set. The use of the chair prop really works. A few considerations. I think the top of the window could be set further in to the image to improve its balance. There is a lot of spare space around the image and I wonder whether an over lay of a rule of thirds grid allowing a re-composition and ultimately some further cropping might improve the overall composition. A smaller square or even a portrait orientation might even be considered. I have mentioned this before but you work is taken in some really difficult locations with regards to available light and exposure. If you are not considering full HDR maybe reprocess your original (RAW) image three times -2. 0. +2 and merging in PS to extend the tonal range and recover some of the details that have been blocked.
Mono for me, definitely. The colour version is lovely, but a touch overcooked in certain areas for my tastes (the reds round the window frame, for example, but I don't know if that's residual paint?). Some great ideas above about combining the two versions for a more muted colour/mono combination. I think your composition is superb, and it makes for a very effective image in a great location.
Both are wonderful images, the mono works well also like the colour on the chair and shadow
Brilliant, Darryl, composition, texture and tone all spot on, and the mono rendering adds even more atmosphere and mystery.
Like the mono best Darryl.
For me I would make the image a portrait for immediate impact.Crop close to the window on the left and crop to the right of the window reflection.Hope you don't mind me saying.
Brilliant Darryl both are excellent but V2 wins for me,well done..Lin
two great images.
i like the colour best.
because it only has a splash of colour.
Superb one Darryl, think i like V1 the best, great comp, spot on mate.
Great Darryl, has to be the mono
as great tones and the chair placed there
could not be better
Fantastic capture Darryl. I prefer V1 the mono as it creates an atmosphere
2 Great images. The mono is a bit stronger for me.
very finest.. for some reason i think the color has it.. because of better representation of ambiance which are equally important in the context of the image.. bah! they both are superb anyway.
Did you organised that chair, Darryl???????????? If yes, I take my hat off to you!!!!!! Very artistic I must say!!!!!!!!! Ania
superb images darryl
great colour and light in the colour version the mono shows
the placing of the chair0o greatest effect
Not surprised to see that this has attracted plenty of attention and praise. Deserves a U.A. too
But it's University Challenge
2 great images
Excellent image Darryl, great composition, very thought provoking and definitely version 1 has more feeling, well done.
Amazing......this is even better than the last one...top marks!!!!! seriously good stuff
Got to be mono for me .
I think mono for me as the tones and detail are their own strength in this shot, could almost be a prison atmosphere! stark cold and harsh, but has a reality about it, great photo in my humble estimation, regards Leon.
Its all been said above Darryl, V1 for me excellent.
Excellent processing on both shots. I'm not an expert in HDR's but V1 is my fav.
a stunning mono with perfect tones.
excellent composition, one of your very best
Great composition lovely job well done
Love both versions Darryl, this image is all about the light and the composition
A stunning shot - love the shadow of the window.
This is the sort of image I wished I'd taken myself - the lighting, the tones, the position of the old chair in the light of the window suggesting some kind of interrogation of yesteryear. An image full of narrative possibilities and oh, dear, how I wished it were mine.
Great photo. I prefer the mono as I think it suits the subject matter better. The light coming through the window is ideal for the chair position.
