    Wow! Thank you jury, I’m honored to be this months winner. I photographed this home during a rain storm and it produced some of the most beautiful light I have ever seen. The soft paint colors, large windows and contrasting elements made for some great ambient images.

    I think I actually spent more time on this foyer than the kitchen that day which is very rare for me. Normally for RE I do not mess with staging that much, but that day I just saw a beautiful image in my mind. I removed about 15 jackets of the hooks in the back and left the two rain coats. I moved the bench from the right side next to the door to where it is now and also added the pillows and nautical door stops. This was shot at 22mm F11 at iso 640. You can see the reverse angle in my feed. What’s funny to me is the last time I won I used an ambient only shot as well. I think the ambient gods are trying to tell me something, maybe its time to throw away all my flashes!

      One of my favorites this month. You did a really nice job on this Brian! I wish you would pull a bit of the orange out on the hardwoods and I wonder why the framed picture on the left wall appears a bit soft while the rest of the image is sharp. Looking forward to hearing how you lit this.

      Looks really good, timber floors look good on my screen (we get timber floors that same warm color as well in my area)

      Love this one, man! Part of me wants to see it without the decorative rug and chair. Either way, kick ass shot!
