House hallway, London.

By pikey  
Afternoon, all...

Haven't been in here much recently..things are slowly coming together in the whole trying to ply a trade in photography malarkey...anyhoo...busy building my portfolio of interiors and I have been fortunate enough to gain access via a location company to some cracking houses.
This shot is the hallway of a house built by the happening architect David Adjaye...I loved the quality of light on the concrete. Wanted to keep the image as stylish and minimalist as pos...I'm pleased with it, please feel free to heap praise or cast asunder ; )

like it.. very stylish and well taken with great light. only crit from me would be that i'd like it even more minimal ie without the clock or with a smaller one lol
but then i don't suppose you could've done anything about that eh?

OK, you already know that there's little or nothing wrong with this technically so I'm wondering why you've offered this up for critique...

Anyway, viewed purely as a photograph and not as an architectural image of someone's home, I'd say everything about the comp is well-considered and perfectly placed - the shoes being an especially nice touch since they temper the sterility of a minimalist interior with a hint of the owner's personality. Only thing I'd take issue with is the patch of light in the top left as it does tend to draw the eye a little.

And good luck with the work, btw. It looks like you're off to a great start!

Indeed...too heavy to move, and might have upset the house owner ; )

Hi Jools...not having been to this site for a while, I am not familiar with the new critique malarkey, so I have mistakingly uploaded it to this section !

Thanks for your comments, though...

I shall happily heap praise. It does seem well balanced in composition and the objects used.

Good to see an fresh image from you Tim.

It's a lovely image alright, the light is gorgeous. I think a bit of selective tidying up of the damaged edge to the concrete on the right would have been a good move.

Hi Tim, good to see you partaking again.

I've always liked your work, as you know, but this is on another level; really professional, magazine quality stuff. It's no wonder you're not around here much these days, you've left us way behind!

I am going to stick my neck out and offer a little critique, nothing against the photo itself, but it says more 'product shot' to me than it does 'interior shot'. I can imagine this used in an editorial piece by a company selling the items, as opposed to illustrating the actual building or interior. Perhaps if I saw it as part of spread it would place it more in context.

I'm glad things are going well for you.

Thanks, guys. Mmmm...I looked at that edge, too Barry..I think you might be right.When it comes to doing the print I shall probably work on it.

Cheers, Steve..thanks for the kind words. Hope things are well with you.

This one I like, this is real class.
Composition, light, colours, spot on.
Shoes in just the right place. I'm sure they want to go out. The furniture items appear to gain their own character too.
That scruffy edge can be irritating, but I think some character may be lost if it goes - depends exactly what you're trying for.

Thankyou Keith...the scruffy edge stays, I think. I kinda like it.
