This was taken at the Beamish open air museum, in the area where 19th century steam engines are stored and operated.

I was attracted by the decaying window frame and the cobwebs inside the window.

The subject is good and worth a shot. I wonder if it was possible to include a top frame in the shot, as you have 3 of 4 sides which tend to unbalance the composition.

Though it appears you have set you camera settings OK, the shot does look a little flat, lacking in contrast, and this may well be simply due to the time of day.

Ive loaded a mod with more contrast, and copied the bottom window frame and placed it at the top.


Hope you find this helpful,


Regards


Willie

Thanks to both, I think the relative flatness is due to a combination of the time and day and the amount of dust inside the window .. the top of the window frame was much higher, so including it would have reduced the proportion of the image taken up by the nuts and bolts
