jezsik: This photo was hovering around third place for most of the voting; nice to see it pull ahead in the end. While I think it's an excellent choice for top spot, I can't help wishing the color had been tweaked. While I like a warm image, this one could stand a bit less temperature and certainly a tweak to the curves. Congrats!

Thanks Jezsik, I appreciate your comment and I perfectly agree with you. The original image was even warmer and "reddish" for the kind of wood of the library and the many leather bound old book. Even the one you see open doesn't have any really white page! The best I could do was to reduce the saturation and the temperature. I applied some vignetting too for darkening a little the wood of the library.

Steve Throndson: Congratulations on first place! It's a very nice photo that definitely says 'library'. I'm curious why f22?

Thank you Steve for your compliments. The choice of F22 is because I wanted an all in focus picture but not a sharp one. This for a better rendering of the "nostalgic" and "fading away" concept. The lens I used at smaller apertures than F16 produces focused but slightly soft images (sort of soft focus filter effect but much less evident), so I used the weakness of that lens at my advantage... ;-)

Steve Throndson: I don't usually vote 4.5 stars, but I did for this photo. Here's how I know the good photos - when I'm voting, and I hear myself muttering 'Damn, I wish I'd taken that one!' Anyway, congratulations on 9th place. Should have been higher, in my opinion.

Thank you Steve, that's very kind of you to say so.
