Val Feldman level-deluxe January 01, 2014

So very inviting with the wonderful warm tones captured - and perfect exposure control, Rona - not easy to do with the bright light from the window spilling about but you nailed it perfectly. The side framing of the dark doors pulls the viewer in and emphasizes the simplicity of the room and the outside view wonderfully. Yep, indeed an excellent capture and a well-deserved Gold Win! A happy 2014 to you and yours! #10934345
