I like the shot although it does have a green colour cast on it. I've made a mod by converting to b+w and adjusting the verticals on the left of the shot. Hope you like.
Cheers, Paul

Thanks for you comments Paul, I don't know how I missed that colour cast.

I have uploaded a corrected version.

I like all the old fashioned colour. V2 definitely an improvement to the skin tone. You've packed a lot in. I like it.

Be happy with it, there is so much nostalgia here, oh dear, giving away my age. Love the tea cosy, the wool holder and all the other paraphernalia. I also like the repeating blues and greens, and particularly the lady's pinny. My only little niggle is that the lady is very central in the frame, and I have considered a crop to the left but didn't want to lose the teapot, lol. I think, however, the crop would have more advantages than disadvantages, eliminating the partial cupboards on the left, one of which is crooked, but that could be adjusted with the perspective tool, I know. Lovely detail and colours, but V2 is definitely an improvement.

Thanks for all your comments, and I agree with your crop Pamela. As you say shame about the teapot, but it does make for a stronger picture.
