    Thanks for the replies guys. A few other folk have mentioned the camera too and that it distracts, but I feel that it adds a little something to the shot. Almost as though the viewer is being viewed.

    Not sure on the crop, Ed. The picture and the colour match were key for me and I think it loses a little too much with that gone maybe.

    Does anyone find the metallic reflection on the skirting boards distracting. I quite like it as it shows the texture of the material, but a few have disagreed and have found that it reduces the impact of the shot.

    Can't say they bothered me unduly. Could possibly be toned down a a touch but I don't think they need to go as they do do underline the metallic nature of the feature.

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    Honestly they are right. It is really badly intruding in a minimalist shot. Worst thing is it is distracting from the line of the spotlight to the chair.

    When I first played with the shot, I tried cloning it, but it was a nightmare with the gradation in shade etc. The metallic reflection was easy to remove, but I quite like it.

    The reflections do not bother me as the eye movement goes to them and then up to the picture.

    Ed well seen; what you mention is not the shot that the OP meant to take but yes I agree with you, there is also another picture in vertical format in there.

    A sign of a great 'clean' composition, I suppose. Utterly envious.

    I'm not normally a fan of these kind of photos (geometrics/arty/shapes/abstract) but this is pretty cool.
