Nicely done runnah. Only thing I would have suggested is moving the stool over to camer right where you could frame the shot without the partial window. (REALLY nitpicky)

Thanks guys. It's actually one of those light wells that some old buildings have. It was private property otherwise I would have moved the stool closer.

It would be interesting to see this in color, possibly tone-mapped.

After seeing the color image, I'd like to see a bit more "red" in the right side wall and perhaps more tonality shifts in the hanging painters to give them better separation from the wall. Just a thought.

Nice spot and well captured. B&W conversion is good. The only thing that bothers me a bit is the distortion upper left (wide-angle lens distortion?). Perhaps there is a lens correction or perspective correction that could manage this.

I like this shot a lot. Question -- the lines formed by the bricks on the patio floor seem to curve a bit to the left. Is that caused by the lens or do they really have a bit of curvature to them as placed?

Well done, Running Man.

Thanks all.

As to the possible lens distortions I use a 35mm prime for this shot which doesn't have much distortion. Any wonkyness I would blame on the 120 year old building.

A 35mm has more distortion than less, if that makes sense. Your left side window is not a product of bad craftsmanship on the part of the builder as much as a distortion to the lens at that angle from that distance. The corner has just about as much distortion in the opposite direction. I shoot a 35mm prime frequently and find if I am shooting right angles, distortion correction is more the norm than the exception.
