    What fasinates me about this photograph is the way it leads in from the top… or does it? That’s the way I see it and I would have posted it up side down or this that the right way up. Confused of Crewe. I would have liked to have seen it in colour was well as I think the grey tones tend to merge together. Thanks for posting this.

    I like that one, John. Definitely an interior – but the tumbled door at a jaunty angle really makes it.

    Two very different interpretations of interiors. Ian I love the feeling of space around yours even though you are very much enclosed by the canopy of leaves. Johns interior shot has the feel of abandonment with the door leading us into the image. A good choice of monthly challenge and the feedback as per good tips and insights.

    ….and hardly one a traditional interpretation!

    I like that one too John. There’s an air of mystique about it. The door takes you to the stairs and round to the doorway and beyond.

    Like both of those Ian. The lady in the window is a lovely structure with those vertical and horizontal lines being echoed by the windows of the building opposite, she looks trapped in the tangle on a really interesting way.

    The second is really intriguing; the lighting, reflections on the wood, the twist on the steps leading where ever.

    This topic has yielded some really good entries, congratulations to everyone who posted; though we do have another three days!

    I like the second photo of your last 2 best Ian. There’s an awful lot going on in the first one. I think I would have concentrated on the contents of the right hand window and not included the left hand. This would mean your just looking at the lady and her enviroment and not distracted by the left hand window.

    I find the second photo a lot stronger with a more ‘moody’ atmosphere.

    Nice geometry again there, Ian. How many rectangles? And they recede into the distance carrying the eye into the room. I like the way you have just part of the chair, so it starts off the sequence without in any way dominating. I’m sure monochrome will have been better here as there would have been distractions cause by colour, such as that case on the shelf and perhaps the decorations. Lovely!

    As you continue looking the rectangle theme appears even more, in the reflection in the door glazing for example. The picture is at once both complex and simple. The complexity keeps the interest but the simplicity (recession and rectangles) enables us to understand what the picture is about very quickly and we don’t get perplexed.

    I do hope that a number of the best Forum pictures are going to be entered next year and we can see what the club judges make of them.

    John >>> Thanks for your insightful and detailed commentary on this photograph. I’m not sure many competition judges would be quite so perceptive!

    I think John has summed it up aptly. I agree that this photo is all about the open rectangles leading to the closed one where you wonder what’s behind it.
