    I like the broken stuff on the ground, but I don't like the angle. Maybe a vertical shot would have been better.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    You don't think the image would've looked a bit too static if all the lines were going up?

    If I don't have an obvious human element in the picture, or I have a picture where I'm trying to convey tension, I feel a slight diagonal tilt helps portray that.

    I think the angle definately adds a human element to it. The tilt is as if the viewer is peeking into the doorway. The light thing on the right really adds interest to the empty-ish right side of the image. Overall I really like it.

    I seriously love this. I keep looking at it.

    You need to print this and frame it.

    We're having this big debate on the chat about whether or not a tilt in this shot is either necessary or appropriate. I say yes. However, some would say no. As a result of this conversation, we decided to try to un-tilt it for comparison.

    I did a quick and dirty job just to get an idea. It borks the image up a little bit, but should give enough of a sense. I hope you an forgive the edit. Your profile doesn't specify your preference.

    Wow I just noticed the painted figures behind the crib on the wall. DAMN that's creepy.

    I need to get a print of this from OP... right after I get one of invisible's lily. :lol:

    god that's creepy. great job. i normally dont approve of tilts, but that one is perfect. it sets the mood. it gives a sense of disorientation.
