    Some friends and I were spent a long weekend at their cabin up in Hemsedal. Located beautifully. The neighbour was my friend's grand mother's place before she died. I asked, and I was allowed inside to take some shots. I could spend hours in there, so many things to shoot. Here is the first one I'm editing. It shows the living room. More from this visit will come in due time :)

    First one is with some more detail. Too much? Second one has less.

    no way, I really like the shot man, look at that detail and perspective distortion!

    Seems like a neat place, but you've sort of stripped some of the emotion out of it by doing the HDR thing. I suppose you could do a less-bright/more contrast one... also seems a little tilted and the perspective leaves you so dead-on with the bed it seems that the bed is lost.

    Dunno, sort of a "real estate" composition, in a place that's clearly not about being "for sale"?

    Not sure if sarcasm :p

    I see. I'm just fond of the "HDR treatment" for old places like these. I've seen many good shots on here of similar places. I wanted to try something similar. It brings out textures in the wood pretty nicely. A high contrast monochrome should be doable. It would be a completely different photograph, though. Definitely something I should try! Thanks for input!

    not sarcasm, promise. HDR seems to really accent perspective distortion, I like it ;)

    Well, thanks then, Trever! :)

    I desaturated slightly, vip, to lose some red. I ended up liking it. Some warmth was nice, though! :thumbsup:

    It doesn't really belong here, but here's a quick high contrast monochrome version. Probably not the best edit, just to see what it might look like.

    compaq after looking at the image a bit the really bright window and curtain was bugging me a bit. I thought it would be a nice touch to add in some light rays.....

    This is a pretty cool image you have posted and I agree 100% that wood and hdr work so well together.

    HDR should have no effect on perspective.

    Vip, one of the things that bugged me there was the lack of light rays! I probably could have hit some old pillow to get that effect, but I didn't want to move around too much, you know. I think it's a bit heavy in your edit. If you had toned it down a little, it would be awesome, imo. I'm not sure how to make this in PS, though. How did you do it, exactly?
