You have beautiful light and inviting depth in this lovely capture, James. Classic is a good word for it. I love black and white but I'll bet the color version was just as welcoming. Congratulations on the POTD.

Very nice shot. Not to cheapen the effect, but the light makes me think of something from the X-Files -- there's an eerie feeling that something is going to come out of that light.
