Light Dining

By SlowSong
The "before" shot. I won't bore you all with loads of dining room pics but I just have these few and some on my blog as I can't get out to do anything else at the moment. And for those of you who are obviously smitten with my old wallpaper, I upload a close up so you can see the lovely pattern and colour as well as the various holes and rawplugs in the wall which were previously hidden behind a picture. Grin

1. High Key view. We do get lovely light streaming in to our dining room.
2. Floorboards.
3. Ceiling.
4. The wallpaper. Blush

V3 is the star, angular and disorientating. It could equally be a 'looking down' shot.

Exactly the same thoughts as expressed by mrswoolybill above.

Yes, I like V3 too, but I wanted to put up a contrast next to yesterday's "grunge" shot. Smile

V3 is also my fave, though I like them all.

Ooo...I really love what you've shot in Vs 2 and 3, Chris. Wonderful POV and focus GrinGrin

And that really is very pretty wallpaper. Speaking of flowery things, the light streaming into your dining room would be AWESOME for floral shots in natural light. What a great staging area Grin

I like that you've taken all these. I would've done so too. For memories, and also for the before & after later on.

A fine set, Chris, but I'm with above, and V3 has to be the winner here - love the quirky viewpoint and angle! Wink

An interesting collection Chris, I particularly like the way you have captured and presented v3... Makes me feel like I'm looking down rather than up! Top shot
