Rooms within the room of a tide mind

By Richsr
Many thanks for all your comments on my last up load, all very much appreciated.

Visited the Victoria Baths in Manchester recently with a few fellow TOG and came up with this one in the Turkish steam rooms.

Processed for a moody feel, but struggled for a good title any good suggestion from anyone is very welcome.

Thanks for looking

Regards Richard

This fine composition has a lot going for it. Very different but very effective.

Im useless with titles myself but I do like this moody image of yours.

Looks like a prisoner on death row awaiting the end, during their last few moments of contemplation..

Brilliant! Symmetry can look academic, dead, but this has a sense of mystery and tension.

A great sense of depth in the lower part of the image- and then comes the surprise, because that wall in the doorway partly feels like a picture on the near wall. The more I look the more it comes and goes as a room beyond or a picture on the wall - now I know I need my eyes testing WinkWinkWink

"Finding enlightenment" - Excellent image. A couple of slight distractions though are the crack in the floor - could this be cloned out? and the light reflecting on the tiles top RHS, could this be dulled down a tad?
This is one of those photos with not much going on but you can still keep looking at for quite a while - excellent.

One of your best ever pictures
Sometimes a shot comes along that the minute you see it you like it, from the thumbnail I was hooked then when it exploded on the screen well it's a work of art, something you would see in an art gallery stunning in all departments a picture paints a thousand words when it's this good, can be lot's of things in a minds eye, I have one word for it STUPENDOUS

No matter the title, Rich, it is a quality piece of work that gets the brainworking, always a sign of a top shot.
