    Pretty cool, although everything seems to leaning to the right.

    This is an interesting capture. Makes you wonder where the chair came from doesn't it? I agree with Kevin in that it does seem to have a slight tilt to it. I think this one screams out for a selective desaturation where you make everything B/W except the chair with a deep saturation and contrast.

    Just a thought.

    Yeah... you have to streighten the lines, but that's easily done.

    What a great image! I LOVE the light... the natural vignetting... very cool.

    Sans the chair, the image is already pretty mono-chromatic, so I don't know what would be gained from desaturating other than a departure from reality. In fact, I'm wondering... did you already add some saturation to the chair?

    Intrersting photo. Leaves one thinking about all the "life" that happened there in the past.

    i agree that no further saturation is needed. the brilliance of red seems to create enough of a desaturated effect overall. i like it a lot and does make you wonder about past lives that roamed these floors. get rid of the tilt and i think you'd have a fine image!

    sharpness and saturation are spot on, but the composition makes me sea sick :)
