A child's bedroom in Old Sturbridge Village, Massachusetts. Canon 5D, tamron 28-75mm, f/8, 1/125, ISO 200. This weekend Mike and I took a roadtrip to Bethel, Maine to see one of my best friends from college get married. The town of Sturbridge was one of our stops along the way.

I really like this! Your choice of sepia is very nice here. I think black and white might be too "unfriendly".

I do think it could use a little more contrast though. It looks slightly flat to me. Maybe it's because of the brown coloring?

Also, I assume you can't do anything about this now, but I almost feel like the left edge of the photo is cut off. Or like this is a somewhat more narrow crop than a 4:3 ratio. I don't know if that's true though, but there's something that makes me feel like I'm missing just a little something on the left side.

These are all subtleties I'm mentioning though. Overall, I think this is fantastic, and once again, I'm jealous of your photographic eye. :)

Updated: I see that you've updated with a higher contrast version. I like this much better! I think it has more depth now.

Nice photo. I see your using the 5d now? Is it yours? Certainly gives that new 28-75 a new use!

Great shot. I love the colors and almost the composition.

Stunning, the composition and light are faultless.

The sepia is perhaps a touch too 'pink' for my taste, but a terrific exposure. Love the gentle mood.

I love photographs from the interior that shows a window- technically hard to get right. You've done a great job, retaining some detail from outside and having good exposure inside. Sepia too pink? Maybe, but the tone would have to be warm to work, the very slight pink doesn't shout at me as being wrong.
