i quite like how your camera handled the bright light outside and the relatively darker interior, Tom. i like the painting partially seen on the left.
Tom Wilson: That was the result of a little post-processing in Lightroom, Ayush - cutting down the highlights and opening up the shadows smile However, the fact that it was all recorded was down to the camera!

I like this better than the fireplace, Tom.
Tom Wilson: It's the same room, however smile
Can you imagine having a window like that in YOUR place of living, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Not really! Wouldn't fit my spartan life-style smile

What a strange interior this seems to be
Tom Wilson: Probably typical of the nobility of the day, Chris - I don't think many of the castles of the era were as well-preserved as this one.

No window seat for this grand place, Tom
Tom Wilson: Yes, a pity that!

They did a great job painting those 'walls' as if it was sculptured.
A window with a view.
Tom Wilson: And those might well be shutters - imagine what it would look like in winter, with them closed with only candle and fire-light to illuminate them!

Quite interesting - back then, the decorations was built in. Lovely window shot.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Louis!

a very elegant window corner with a lovely view!
Tom Wilson: You should try to visit next time you are in the UK, Philine!
Now that really is a beautiful window.
Tom Wilson: A beautiful room altogether, Brian.
I remember this bit. I liked Bolsover when we went back in 2007!
Tom Wilson: I think English Heritage has done a lot more work on it since then, Bill, so it probably worth another trip smile
The gold bowls me over.
Tom Wilson: The whole thing is quite stunning, isn't it?
superbe travail!! amitiés
Tom Wilson: Merci, Jean Pierre
Nice use of selective color...
Tom Wilson: Not really, Larry - no selection at all smile
I like that your photo shows what's out the window!!
Tom Wilson: A little tweaking in Lightroom achieved that smile
