Nice shot. LIKE.

Greetings from La Coruña, Spain.

stuart murphy on December 10, 2012

Thanks Joaquín. I think the light from the window reminded me of a Caravaggio or a Vermeer, where there's strong but subtle contrast between dark and light. I just had to work with it to get the composition Regards Stuart

Hi Stuart.
I did a bit of a double take when I first saw this, I thought " What's a Vermeer doing on Pano ? ".
On closer inspection I see an amazing piece of photography the equal of the "Old Master".
Congratulations on a great work of art!

thanks Pat, it was all about the fabulous diffused winter morning sunlight coming through that window! regards Stuary
