I love the way the light shines through our dark wooden dining chairs.

Curiously I took this today before I knew about the challenge; figured it was worth posting.

I'm going to be really annoying and say I think this is another one which would look best with either it fully out of focus or with it all dead sharp. I still very much like your idea and thinking. Good entry.

Interesting idea.

My concern though if it's all out of focus or all in, is that the eye has no-where to "rest". No focal point as it were. Also I quite like the detail of the wood grain and sunlight.

Perhaps I'll run it through Photoshop to blur it up a bit and post it for comparison.

I get what you mean which is exactly why I said what I did. I'm wondering how well it would work taking the focal point away from the grain and giving to the pattern as a whole.
It's just what popped into my head when I saw it so I thought I'd post it.

I likethis pic. It's like a casual glance at something lovely.

I'd actually like to see more detail because it appears that this is hand made. (Noting the drill holes in the corners of the openings)
