This photo is very well done and was taken at the right angle in the room that shows everything. It really puts the imagination to work, one can almost actually see how this room was apart of a villa that was built a couple of centuries ago. One can almost see women folk from the seventeenth century working on cleaning the room and entertaining guest with its beauty. But even with its age, it is still beautiful and can take someone's breathe away. With everything that it is in the room, it was like that the people just step out of the room for a moment, but they returned.
What do you think?

What can one say? All of your work feels as if I could step into the shot as if I were there already. Much of your work causes the imagination to run wild at the thought of what life would be like to live in that time and place. Not to mention a scale of wealth most of us wouldn't understand. For me. This is a favorite. The openness of it to nature and the peace it exudes even now in it's dilapidated state.  I envision this room as a beautiful sitting parlor. The upper parts of the openings on the left have stained glass, and below: French door panels that can fold back completely letting in the afternoon breeze. I see the plaster removed from the walls and ceiling to show the refurbished brick in all its beautiful warm browns. I see large piece, simple pattern, tile floor. On the tile are three or four 15 by 20  large plush rugs of golds and reds with tall dark wooden oversized floor lamps giving the room a shadowy warm glow. All around are large overstuffed sofas and lounger chairs of heavy brocade fabrics and leather. A large round wood table on the near left to eat at or for cards. Outside beyond the openings, I see a brick patio with furniture and the trees thinned out with flowers and landscaping. To top it off a fountain streams water that can be heard giving it all a soothing bliss I would never want to leave.  So this is my critique. Thank you for this photo, and many others. Norm

I suppose this photo makes me want to cry, I can think of the people who used to live here , and now their once beautiful home is in ruin. It makes my heart heavy with sorrow. The lighting is perfect for this shot, and the camera is in a nice angle, great work!

Sometimes, I wonder "Who was there? What happened? and Why?" when I see these kinds of pictures. But, the best thing is we won't know... we can wonder.

Its a shame and its sad how these beautiful places are abandoned and left to sit until it falls apart. Lovely photo by the way.

It's so amazing to see these beautiful photos, yet so depressing to notice how such places can be left uncared for to decay.
However... wonderful shot! :clap:
