These won't last long so I'm taking lots of pics before they keel over!

I like the composition and feel of this image.
Best wishes David
Thanks I'm not sure if I'm going to find this is too dark? As per usual I'm having trouble with the monitor and am never entirely sure what the image is like. Actually I think this monitor is ok but when I view the pics on my monitor at work they're incredibly dark - hey ho!
Thanks Colin for your mod - I must use some different texture layers. I'd really like to have a set of boards with different finishes on them so I don't 'have' to use textures at all - for now that's just another thing on my list of things to do.......
You're a master of understatement with very subtle lighting.
colijohn's mod certainly adds lovely light and that could work with many different textures.
We could see fifty versions and learn from them all.
beautiful.. as kate says, an understatement and a pleasurable one.. i love the lack of light.. never seen anything like it before in my real life, I mean the flower vase with an open book and round-rimmed glasses together.. but made me nostalgic all the same.. the light coming from the window, an overcast sky, just about to rain.. really, really special..
Avery clasic feel,love the ambiance.
Simple - yet effective
The subdued lighting does lend a rather sad feel to the image, as if some curtains were closed, a darkened room.
The mod certainly turns it into a totally different, more cheerful image. But the two stand on their own feet and should not be compared with each other.
Yes, I agree with Malc.
V1 is like a mourning image, but I like it and I don't think it is too dark.
Amazing how a little light changes the mood....there's a lesson there somewhere....
I'm afraid it is on the dark side - yes it has a mood, but taking a look at the histogram it only reaches just over half way so there are no highlight tones, in fact some midtones are missing. By moving the white point slider as it looks like colijohn has done retains that moody look but with a full range of tones and better contrast to bring the image alive.
A late return - apologies.
Thanks again everyone - I've just had a play with the histogram and it's something I should do more often! I do like dark and gloomy and appreciate that maybe I should experiment a bit more!
