PLEASE SIT DOWN by ALISON METHERELL

GRADE - MERIT

I feel that if I sit on that chair, I am going to fall through the floor! Like the rest of it's surroundings, the chair needs of a bit of TLC! Old properties and their contents provide a mecca for photographers. Decay and dilapidation make for excellent subjects. I should like to have seen a fraction more detail in the blacks to the rear of the chair whilst simultaneously reducing the highlights on the side wall. The sharp falloff in light suggests the possible use of flash. There is nothing wrong with that but this might account for the strength of light in this instance. Consider turning the image into monochrome. I feel this would enhance the surreal quality and possibly lift it a faction towards the next level.
