Great shot - so simple but it works really well. You get a real feel of a late afternoon inside a darkened house full of old memories.
Chris Macnamara: Glad you see what I wanted here.
The composition is very effective in creating a pensive mood.
Chris Macnamara: It does, but I think BeajerSt makes a valid point.
Simple but effective image.
Chris Macnamara: Thanks Aistair.

Beautiful, a little more air around the light on the floor would have created more impact and a bit of drama. Even if it didn't exist in real life you could have created additional black space by extending the canvas in PS. Seems a little contained and restricted as it stands.
Chris Macnamara: Good point. Didn't know I could do that in PS. Will investigate. Thanks Simon.
Just in case you aren't sure - Increase your canvas size, then use layers; add a fill layer, fill it with black, discard the mask that comes with the layer - then add a new reveal all mask. Finally tou a large white paintbrush to remove the areas of mask that allow your image to show thro' Any mistakes can be corrected with a black brush. Flatten and Bob's your uncle. If you already know - then ignore all the above and let me say how much I like the distorted light on the floor - thick glass makes for great shadows. Mike
Chris Macnamara: Had a try with the canvas stretching thing, and it was easy, wasn't it. I have now tried using that to create borders too. Is that the right way to do that? Thanks for the comment about the picture too!
Nice and simple but really works well.
Chris Macnamara: Cheers Les. Simple, it was!
Lovely, Chris. I like!
Chris Macnamara: Gracias Jose-Angel
I like this very much even though I agree with Simon. Stretching the canvas in PS is really easy and very useful if need be.
Chris Macnamara: Cheers Jose. Have had a practice at stretching canvas, easy!
