First time visitor–enjoying your work; the POV especially! This image is really lovely. The composition and lighting have the quality of a 19th Century painting. See Georg Friedrich Kersting, for example.
Thank yo very much for your kind – and encouraging – words. I was quite pleased with the way that this image finally turned out, but it was a very ‘interesting’ exercise in post-processing to compensate for the very bright backlighting coming through the window (changing the angle wasn’t an option because we weren’t allowed past the doorway). I was not aware of Kersting, although I’ve seen some of the work of his contemporary, Caspar David Friedrich. He was quite fond of challengingly placed windows though, wasn’t he?
In the same way a painter kisses the canvas with a bit of highlight or adds deeper dimension with shadow, I like to think of the post processing as part of the photography (writing with light). Thanks for dropping by my place!
