I quite like it.. is it HDR? I especially like the glass and the basin. The only problem is noise, I have it all the time... some people reduce noise before processing.. I'v never been bothered.. i would do something about the floor.

I like this. It does appear a little noisy when you go in close which surprises me with an ISO of 100, is that caused my the HDR processing maybe?

These old building are fascinating and this is a good record shot of what once no doubt was a very up to date facility. I particularly like the reflections on the tiles and the texture of the sink and floor; not sure what Xwang means when she says she would 'do something about the floor' though. I'm assuming by your comment that you used the lens at its shortest focal length because of lack of space and you wanted to get as much as possible in. The effect of that of course is that the verticals are distorted.

I have straightened the verticals in my mod, brought the highlights down a touch and reduced the noise but nothing more.

well potentially its a great subject but im unsure that hdr which hasnt been done very delicately has added anything at all to the impact. it may have added some detail to the glass but id have been tempted to set the camera on a bracket run and upped the iso to 800-1000iso and set the aperture to 4-5.6 to give me a fighting chance of an image and then blended the frames with a layer mask and then straightened the verticals some. your hdr has degraded the quality and almost has given a solarised appearance.

i think a slightly differect and possibly lower viewpoing would have helped with the distortion.

the room has all the colours and forms to provide a fab image but im not sure you made the best of your opportunity on this occasion and the use of f8 and iso 100 was your greatest obstacle in doing so.

Phil has summed it up, I think.

A lower viewpoint would have allowed you to include the top corner of the window, perhaps trading off a small amount of the floor.

Those of you that know me will be aware of my views on correcting verticals and in this instance, I'd certainly leave the verticals as they are. I think that their quirkiness adds to the image.
Trying to correct them will never work properly anyway, due to the angle across the window at which the shot's been taken.

Hope this helps.

Bren.
