My "subject" in this photo was inherently unfocused. Consider this, I was standing on a sidewalk and shooting through a shop window. The glass in front of me had a slightly dusty surface and there were reflections of the neighborhood behind me (the pale blue haze with the network of fine branches). The shop had relatively low light, but it had some rather dramatic chandeliers on display. I noticed a nice reflection of these chandeliers from another window about 30 feet (10 meters) away through the shop on the opposite side of the interior. Beyond that window, there was a tree and a parking lot. It was the sum of surfaces, reflections and space that caught my interest.

If I were to criticize this piece I would suggest that it might have deeper, more saturated color. And, this might surprise you - I think that it is a bit too sharp. I can see some rather coarse clusters of pixels in the image, a defect caused by over-sharpening while editing.

That may sound like a bunch of excuses for a flawed image, but I see something worthwhile here. A goal of mine is to print my images on good quality rag paper using an archival printer. The prints should soften the image somewhat and I expect better color, too. Perhaps that will clarify my intentions.

Kat, I will always give you permission to use my work as you see fit. I would be delighted to see what you might do based on my work. It would probably be great fun and I would likely be inspired, too. :nod:
