I loved this image when I took it; but the problem I had was the tremendous range of lights and darks, so it took a fair bit of work to try and balance the picture to make it presentable.
It is actually a first floor room, and the garden behind is the other side of a moat. The little figure in the background is cooking some potage with lots of garlic and the smell of food cooking over an open fire had drifted into the room. So along with the image you have to imagine the aromas of a pomander being made, and the smell of cooking over an open fire all mingling together!
