Dining room ( table)

By xwang
Yes, I'm still in the Old Hall, like the ghost lingering there, wouldn't go away...Grin
Very limited light, I can't remember how I took the photos now, very quickly...I would think, because there were several visitors in a small room.
More than three 100% screen layers to brighten it up(about 350%); Multiply to darken the window; I brightened up a little on the panels near the ceiling,but I couldn't go too far, the noise came out. (ISO1000). Lab color sharpening. I forgot the window, when I did the sharpening, it looked a bit over sharpened after re-sized, so I gave it 0.5% gaussian blur. My questions are:
A:Is it acceptable?
B:I zoomed in the window on the right, and corrected CA on RAW file accordingly. Later, I found that the two windows from left side were with strong CA. I couldn't correct them all on PS easily. Any tips,please?
C: Anything else is needed to be done,plese?
All comments, criticisms are welcome. Thanks.

For me, Jas, I would crop the whole of the bottom off to just below the table top giving a panoramic composition. There is nothing of interest in the bottom half. The content of the top section and exposure is very good. The other way would be to use a higher viewpoint in the first place.

When faced with such a subject, I would probably shoot at least half a dozen variations from different angles and sort them out later.

Ah.. yes, Paul. When I rolled up a bit cut off the bottom,It does look better, more concentrated on the table matter..Excellent! Why didn't I think of it?Grin You are the master class..
I'll take your advice, take some more in the future. Actually, I still take one shot of the ones I like,unless the bracketing ones. I'm saving the ... film.
Thank you,Lynne. Nice to hear from you, ..
Thank you all.

I think you managed it quite nicely. IMHO, the bottom balances the light coming from the windows. Only, I'd like to ask about the stain on the top right hand corner of the ceiling, was it originally there, or caused by your work?

Thank you, Nezih. I'm not so sure, really. I guess that light patch was from the light "escaped" from the top of the window shone on the ceiling. It's perhaps also the result of brightening up too much..

Thanks again.
