  • Editing Software Photoshop / Photomatix Pro

  • Notes Had to go to 1600 on P&S in tungsten lighting with little room to set up tripod properly.. hence the POV you see here. Best I could as I could have improved the compostion if set up space was available.

CAUTION.. May Frighten Children..!! My first inside shot using my P&S. Feel free to rip it apart in judging as the vote number means nothing to me frankly. Circa 1840 plantion cook-house. And I am aware of the burnt brick over the fire-place.. for those not familar with real fire-places it is called soot. haha

This are massive kitchen tools! Like you self declared to many thinks cutted half like the table, the chairs and pot on the wall.

Maybe in this "tight" locations it could be better to try some close ups. The oil lamp on the desk should be a good subject for example.

iso 1600??? too high for a good hdr; need more sharpness

26 Jul 13:42

Thanks Dirk.. you may be correct sir. There is rail fence across with only a meter to set up tripod. Had to approach angle.. stick one leg through fence and straddle the tripod. Between tricky lighting new to photo and this a nightmare to shoot for me. ha

Agree Panda.. very low light and P&S with little aperture adjustment means higher ISO which is deadly to sharpness. But.. I was determined... haha

nice subject john

26 Jul 14:33

noisy, lacks sharpness

26 Jul 16:19

It look good b4 download:)!

26 Jul 16:27

I like the subject and detail....I agree about trying the individual items

26 Jul 17:46

Not your best John. For me, the image is too 'busy' (the eye is drawn to several points at the same time). Need to isolate a subject, as suggested.

:D buen proceso

Whats soot?:)

26 Jul 20:14

Darkening of the bricks from the process of escaping smoke and heat. It's basically charcoal dust.. touch it and your hand turns black from what rubs off. :)

Agree on busy Karl.. I wanted to rip down the fence rail and remove the table al-together but.. those young ladies dressed as American Colonials carry derringers in their garter "just for people like me". haha

John I am joking, English humour.

26 Jul 20:59

9+ John considering what you shot it with and the ISO used. Excellent Processing considering above details and remarks.

I really don't se any noise. Great job John

Great process, taking into account the high ISO. For taste there is nothing written, I like this kind of photos with many things. I enjoy discovering one by one.

You could have fun in this place! But this shot is busy and I agree that close-ups would probably work better. Image does look a little soft. Often I've created a suitable resting place for camera and used self-timer at 100 ISO in these sort of situations
