Aha! I think I just saw someone else's kitchen challenge. Hmmm. Don't know about Simon or his challenge.

Two candles. Are you waiting for someone/something, Petra? Are you dreaming/meditating.

As we say here in Georgia (big Country genre with fans of Faith Hill), "Just Breathe!"
Petra: Was waiting for the microwave to do "ping" and i could start eating my dinner on the floor....i like eating at candle

Love the mood in this shot Petra. Forget the microwave. Get a kerosene powered bain marie and start boiling your food.
Petra: lol Neil....fantastic idea grin
Good shot; just enough light for a distinct image.
Petra: Thanks Wimsmile

Submitted against June's Challenge at BeakerSt

Relevance and Creativity
Well it's definitely in the kitchen, (note to Mal) and it's creative in a moody way. I like it although you look sad. Scores 8

Overall Impact
It's very very sad and lonely looking. It presents a lot of emotion and is therefore quite dramatic, scores 8

Just one niggle, it's meant to be sombre and sad and draw you in to the emotion of the shot…then I see the two bright spots on the far right which make me go 'oh I wonder what that is…"" I am picky but they could have been cloned out and the viewer would then have been drawn into the shot a little better. Scores 7

Quality of Image
Nice and gritty and emotional. Scores 8

Total 31/40 (4th equal)
