The Window

By chase
Thought I would try a different location for a few images, off I popped into the Wendy House in my garden, it has stood for many years and is now nice and mucky Wink
Took all my stuff and set up close to one of the windows. It's made from perspex which, over the years has weathered nicely...instant diffused light...yay !
The white balance was quite tricky to get right as the Wendy House is made of pine which showed everything up very orange, Camera raw filter helped there.
Nothing is straight and the darkness to the right leads into a tricky corner.
A fairly challenging session.

Lit by daylight from the window and from the open door camera left.
3 frame HDR, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photomessaboutshop.
It's nice and dark, I like it that way Wink

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.
Stay safe and smile Smile

The diffused light and grubby windows are perfect with your old books - they could have been left there ages ago.

That's a lovely set-up, and the window is a gift. I can see you using this location quite a few times. Smile

Could be on the cards but, carrying all my stuff over there in a basket is not ideal and because the Wendy House has an upstairs any room for manoeuvre is limited...hmmmm, stairs...now, that's for another day Wink
I do like the light from the mucky windows though...there is one upstairs too.

I must go mess up my husbands shed. Sounds such a good idea. He will probably kill me but what the heck. If one can get as great of images as this in dirty surroundings then it will be worth it.

Now that, to me, looks like a natural clutter, not arranged, so full marks for that, Janet. The addition of the motivated light gives extra brownie points.Wink
