The lantern in the cellar 3

By mrswoolybill
Last in series. This is I think my favourite, it indicates the structure of the barrel-vaulted roof, which partially explains the shadow patterns.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Nice one.
You could even crop the lantern out and that would be pretty good too.

I tried a few shots of the shadows without the lantern, I included one as a version with the first in the series. It didn't quite work out for me because taken alone the shadows somehow lacked coherence. But I can see merit in a crop of this, because of the arc on the right - I shall try it later.

Excellent! Your favourite square crop leaving the arch out would also work well, and may be that's what you are thinking of, Moira.

Very nicely composed and 'monofied' (If there is such a word) Wink An excellent finale' to a fine set Moira.

Just back from Newcastle - many thanks to Ollie, Nezih and Ron for their UAs, and to everyone who has called in here.

That comes up as quite close to a couple of earlier uploads. Following Alan's suggestion I have taken a square crop from the right side, and that works, because of the structure of the ceiling. It will get its own upload some time...

It looks like a cave dug out the side of a mountain. A very good mono image, made quite special from the lanterns light play.

The light pattern is wonderful and it really highlights the rough texture of the wall.
Lovely photograph.
