That should be part of a Rembrandt painting.

Beautiful.
Ginnie Hart: I just recently saw many Rembrandt paintings, Michael, at the Rijksmuseum. Don't worry. I'll never be compared to him but what a glorious thought!

Now this is where HDR is useful Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Right now Astrid and I are having a conversation about what you are saying in your comment, Chris. HA! She thinks you're saying how much better this image would have looked if I had used HDR (it would be lighter and more brilliant) and I think you maybe think I DID use HDR. Either way, I did mean to keep this quite subdued and mellow, the way I saw it that day. Sometimes I need that for quietness and inner strength.

I remember you eyeing up this window, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Lisl. As I just told Chris, sometimes I need the quiet shadows/light to renew my inner parts and give me strength.

Perfect light here. And indeed a classic here. The large window sill make a perfect 'storage' like for that coffee cup... what a great place to have a cup of coffee.
Fabulous picture.
Ginnie Hart: That modern coffee cup really caught my eye for this ancient spot, MLMA. I love cozy windows like this. They calm me down. smile
I like the intimacy of this photo
Ginnie Hart: "Intimacy" is a good word, Marie. It's the feeling I have in such a cozy spot. Merci.
Nice lighting. Using HDR would produce a totally different picture
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill. I have no idea what HDR would do to this image. Hmmm. I may need to try it out?!

I rather foolishly followed the link and caught sight of this: Wednesday 19th August
Big breakfast 2015
A traditional Cornish breakfast in the Tudor Gildhouse
In aid of Church funds

Now I'm even more hungry as I've not had breakfast yet and I'm waiting for the Mad House to start slopping up at 8am. No mid week break for me sad
Ginnie Hart: HA! This is what happens when we follow links, Alan. grin Sometimes I have to find a cozy, intimate window like this, in the shadows, where I can refresh my inner self.
How Vermeer would have loved to have painted this image Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: That's probably the best compliment anyone could have given me, Chad. Thank you.
Great light control for this beautiful intimate capture Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Love the draw of the window here Ginnie. Quite captivating
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Janet. It felt very cozy to me.
Such a lovely setting!
Shame you didn't frame A enjoying her cream tea outside the window. wink
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, LC, and HA! Too bad A wasn't even there with me when I was in Cornwall...but she did join us later in Bath.
Nice wide window sills You could have a whole garden here.
Ginnie Hart: Quite so, Mary. Nice for when the sun came back around!
We are overwhelmed with magnificent images on SC.today and this is another one of them, oh how I wish I'd taken this, so much quiet atmosphere. Mind you it might be worth playing about with it as HDR for a bit of fun one day.
Ginnie Hart: You're so very kind, Brian. I have a feeling the HDR would make it so entirely different from what I felt in the moment, but it'd still be a fun exercise to see.
love the lighting...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Robin.

You have made it look totally magical and mysterious, Ginnie. Really like it.
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Pauline. I like that you were there when I saw that place!
It's always nice to peer through an old window!
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Tom!
A still of class Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: That's very sweet of you, Ronky. Thank you.
