  #192 Sophistication
Entry 1 of 16
   
 
The Drawing Room       ©2017 RobertLavker
Panasonic DMC-GX7       1st place, 155 points
2s, f8, ISO 125, 22mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: increased shadows, decreased highlights, increased contrast; curves; transform - skew slightly; filter - unsharp mask       Extra Info: Built in the 1890’s, the elegant Drawing Room evokes images of Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald, members of the “lost generation” that wrote about and emulated the decadence and frivolous lifestyle of the wealthy. The Drawing Room exudes a sense of savoir faire, synonymous with sophistication along with a certain “je ne sais quoi”.

    The Mob must be back in Chicago. This just has to be fixed LOL
Two 1st places in your own challenge, better yet they were well deserved. Many congratulations. This was my first pick too. Kudos.

    I appreciate all of the comments, suggestions and votes. This is one of the restored rooms in the Chicago Athletic Club and reeks of sophistication.

    Nicely done. There is a definite atmosphere of old wealth and sophistication here. Excellent job of calculating the lighting with the 2 sec. exposure.

    Perfect composition of a difficult subject. That was enough to lead me to Chicago :-) I can feel the atmosphere - love it.

    Suits well to the topic. Excellent picture. My first choice.

    Good idea but could be better composed so that the column is not so dominant and the hue and exposure could be improved. Still in my TT.

    Fabulous room! Very sophisticated. The photo is nicely composed, cradled in that angled piece. (Not sure if it is the back of seating?) My top pick.

    The elegant room is a good choice of subject, but consider a higher camera position to avoid showing so much of the blank foreground panel. Some odd color effects in the lighting.

    This fits the challenge very well. Nicely taken so the lights don't blow out and the shadowy detail is revealed.
