Having treated you all to tea at Castle Drogo we move to Lanhydrock House for some light entertainment on the Steinway piano.
A bit of a battle to get because of the blinds on the windows restricting light and no flash allowed.
This was part of my winter challenge - to capture indoor shots to include windows without getting blown out detail.
Thank you for all recent comments and votes (Hermanus really made us laugh with his comment on Gracious Living2)
Best wishes to you all
love the light in this one carole brilliant detail and tones a belter nice one
An excellent interior capture, Carole, I can just hear Liberace tinkling the ivories Carol
Very well handled Carole
The low light levels have been overcome by you, capturing an image which I'm sure accurately represents the ambience of the room so well.
You got that one spot on Carole well done.
You have done very well here with an ISO of only 100.
just waiting for me to play it ...
In my dreams
Done well here Carole with the limited light
good exposure control again Carole some very fine wood in this
The exposure is excellent Carole, love the atmosphere created here.
You have captured the charm and light so very well Carole.
I think the lighting is just right
Great practise taking indoor shots - not at all easy.
I love libraries in old houses and imagine people reading lots in days when there was no TV.
A grand Grand Piano here Carole, set in a very grand Room, bet it cost a few too
Love the atmosphere created by the light in this shot.
Brilliant use of available light here.
One of the best 'available light' shots that I have seen for a long time Carole. Not only a very well composed image but superbly exposed. It's terrific!!!
Pity I have given my UA.
Very well done low light picture you have captured this so well, I played the piano as a čhild and seeing a piano is a great temptation to tinkle on the keys
Well, I really enjoyed that tea, Carole...I'm waiting now to hear you tickling those ivories...
A very fine capture, and well handled in the tricky lighting conditions
A flash would have spoiled the image - perfect light to capture the beauty and elegance of the place
Excellent exposure lovely shot
Not only a beautifully composed and captured image of what look like the sort of room I dream of, they also have "my" piano stool. Must go and check it's still here!
That's some winter challenge with the windows! You've done well here and lovely light on the Steinway. It was pretty amazing, the opulence in the last two uploads. I do NOT envy the housekeeping involved, though!!
What a beautiful piano-- fits in well with the library!
The exposure is excellent
You seem to have succeeded in your challenge to yourself Carole.
Is that a stuffed Owl or something else, on the furniture, betwen the two portraits?
Perfect exposure, wonderful interior capture!
Beautiful use of light - I can hear the silence!
This image hits all the right notes Carole, you've made the best use of the available light
Most of the places I have worked in had this sort of light and atmosphere Carole, very restful, regards Leon.
