By saltireblue    
It's been a couple of weeks since my previous upload. Been very busy with other things.

This is a volunteer at the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History. She sits in a 17thc log house waiting to answer visitors questions about life at that time. As the buildings at this open-air museum are originals reconstructed on this site, then there is no electricity and she has only a candle for light and warmth.
Note that although the table is horizontal, the wall cladding is far from vertical!

Many thanks for bothering.

Malc

Like an Old Masters painting.

Odd about the boards and table?


Uploaded a square crop, and since Im on a rant about AWB, Ive calibrated it, - a little warmer.

A very fine model for this re-enactment/Question and answer role, -- thoughtful image!

This could just as easy have been taken at our Beamish museum Malcolm. A cracking image with that beautiful soft light on her face.

Although I've never been to Beamisg, Dan, I did think along the same lines as you, having seen images from there.

Is anything vertical about or around you, Malc. Like the lighting on this, very nicely captured.

A very pleasing, pre-Industrial Revolution atmosphere engendered here, which is of course the intention.
Not even 21st-century builders do verticals very well, leastwise in wood and plaster . . .
I remember the circumstances and would not have coped nearly so well.

As I recall, there wasn't a true vertical in the whole place!

Very attractive image, Malc, very painterly.
I'm uploading a mod just for a bit of fun... not to be taken seriously, your pic is just fine as it is!!

Strange indeed with the verticals Malc.
Even the candle flame leans to the right !!
Good shot.

Looks more like a Vermeer to me! Wonderful lighting and 'set-up.' No anachronisms. Terrific.

Thank you for the kind comment, Malc!
A fine image in square format. I was wondering about how would it look in mono, then saw Alan provided a version. I also like the model who seems to be just right. Lovely period feel to it, and works so well as a portrait as well.
