    I had the opportunity to take some shots inside this awesome mountain cabin. For those interested, it's in Hemsedal, Norway. It was my friend's great grandmother's home.

    It has been tonemapped. What I'm after, is some feedback on the composition. I felt lucky that I could compose in such a way that the old outhouse was just visible in the window. Does it work? I had to centre the window, but as the window isn't the the subject in itself, I think it works. What do you think?

    I like the shot, the outhouse is not a major component imo. That is to say, I may not have noticed or have known what it was without your explanation. The image does induce a vertigo effect that I equate with waking up with a sour mash hangover, or the Norwegian equivalent... Not necessarily a disqualifier :)

    The only aspect I'm not fond of is the perspective; looking "into" the image, it feels like I'm trying to go uphill. Other than that, it's a good shot, and the processing works well IMO.
