Gorgeous. The tonal gradation, with the twigs emerging from darkness, is perfect. Great composition, and Moira will crop it for sure... mind you,
it would look good square-ish! ...( as well as, not instead of ) What colour's the wall??
Hope you and Gary are enjoying Christmas,

Alan

Please be assured that I have no desire to crop this! The protective arc of dark shadow top and right is perfect, it echoes the arc of twigs. Portrait is my other favourite format, I like images that lead the eye up and down rather than side to side.
Interesting point (for me)... back a couple of years ago I remember a long discussion between several members about hotel bedroom lighting - a) the photographer's immediate instinct on entering a hotel room is to photograph the light fittings, b) you can always recognise the impersonal, commercial character of such designs.
This is the antithesis, it's a personal world.

An interior moonlit evening with a beautifully selected crop. All I can says it works so very well.

You show the art of taking good photography in everyday situations.

Rather wonderful.

And though there are other potentially-attractive crops, this one is fine!

At the risk of repeating myself... Great composition, which might ALSO work as a square crop.

ffs.....

Very nice indeed. Light and shade held beautifully in balance.
