Nostalgia 2

By SueEley
A fairly similar version of this was previously uploaded on the critique gallery. I have taken advice on board Smile This is a strange picture that I keep come back to for a number of reasons - it is taken at Blaenavon Ironworks, a museum - who lay in the bed? HOw do they keep it just that amount of musty but not more so? Why do I feel nostalgic for this - is it really that close to my first home in London or my Nana's house in Liverpool? The shot is 3 shot hdr, and the advice I took was to deal with a blue cast in some areas, and to deal more realistically with the view out of the window. In fact, the view is now the one part of the shot that is no longer hdr. I think the more muted shades here do work for a view. Anyway, if you saw it before, I hope you don't mind looking again! Thanks. (BTW, haven't been posting much due to moving house/family illness and overwork....)

I can see what you mean by nostalgic. It looks like a much loved bed from one's past, comfy, cosy and with a lovely view. A snug and safe corner. I love the muted tones and the well controlled highlights. A lovely image Sue.

Love this image Sue - 'speaks of times and places half-remembered - nostalgically lodged in the recesses of the mind'. A very 'human' photograph.

Thanks for your comments - am not getting here very often as we have just moved and are relying on a dongle!

Love this, and also triggers a nostalgic emotional response in me too. Think its the quality of light as much as anything, the strong shadows really enhance it
