Here is a shot I took while experimenting with compostion. Iwas attracted tothe conflicting geometries of the chair, the window and the shadows.

Comments are more than welcome.

I like the shot. I am particularly interested in the shadows. It appears that, in addition to the direct sunlight, there was another light source outside the window. Was there something that was reflecting light into the window. It appears that the light source is about level with the window and diffused the reflection. Perhaps it was a white colored truck or other vehicle.

I know, I've been reading too many Tom Clancy novels and the CIA stuff is rubbing off on me!

A few years back, my wife did a shot similar to yours with an APS camera. It was a good picture, but (don't tell her I said this) I like yours better!

Hi Cal;

Guilty as charged. Our bedroom window looks over Lake Erie. The diffused light is the sunset reflected off the water. You can probably guess from the angle of the shadows how close our window is to the water. I thought this made the overall effect quite interesting. Thanks for the comments.

P.S. Sergio... I'm glad you like the colours... I was sooo tempted to do this in B/W.

Oh,no doubt, in B&W this shot will work too, and it will work extremly well indeed since composition and geometries are so nice !

But inB&W we would have missed that nice sky from the window together with the warm tones of the wooden chair .... and I think that in this case the feeling of harmony between mature age and nature this shot is speaking of would have been lost.

Sorry about that. The truth be known, our particular area is not inside any of the infamous "snow belts". When Ohio is getting slammed, we often get only a dusting.

Another plus of living on this side of the water is that on July 4th, we can see firework displays from Cleveland to Toledo. We also get a pretty good view of your spectacular summer lightning shows... thanks.:-)
