    Compliments...this is awesome. Personally I would choose to have less border when viewing on the screen.

    Thank you for the comment Michael
    Why less border viewing on screen ?

    If I may respond... its so bright that I find my eyes having to adjust and focus on the picture. I personally think it might take away from your picture that is well done. By eliminating the big border, would the picture be bigger and easier to see the details?

    @ Mike and Michael you are absolutely right
    It is decided: Black and White = No canvas what so ever.
    Thank you for your interest and opinion.

    @ Thank you Tommy I do my best

    Antonio, I love the image sans border, and for my tastes, the larger pic is much preferred.
    Perhaps just a narrow border of 1/8"?

    The wall density is very interesting...(they appear to be about two feet thick!), and
    the tools laying on the dirt floor bring a damp, musty smell to mind.

    Antonio,

    I liked the image with the border but, wished that I would have seen the image in a larger scale. Removing the border allowed a larger image to pop up on my monitor. I like it much better.

    However, if this image were printed in a very large scale, the large border might be nice.

    There are some images that just need to be seen in a larger scale to have impact and we are limited in viewing them on our monitors...

    Final version, correctly cropped, unsharped etc etc....
    @ Thank you Tobias
    @ Mike: The wall is not concrete for sure It may be adobe or any less modern material. I am only sorry that the tools on the floor are not really, really sharp. But... we can't have everything can we ?

    Absolutely Richard. Absolutely. Also depends on the room, it's size and light.
    However, as we are here I decided after listening to opinions as above stated, to post without canvas.
    If I were to print I would do it without canvas because the black and white is - most of the times - or was, presented without canvas.

    Thank you Richard fro your lines I appreciate them

    Antonio,
    it's a beautiful picture, for sure I really like your last B&W works

    but ( ) perhaps I prefer the previuos version of this one: the one with a tighter crop above the window. I think the barely visible light in the upper left angle could be a bit distracting, i think... I'm too severe, I know...
    thanks for sharing

    Nicola

    mmmm... watching again, I'm not still sure about what I said above...
    I like the diagonal line of the roof that guides the eyes from top-left to the window, and I like the position of the upper right angle of the frame in relationship with the angle of the window...
    but I stll don't like so much the barely visible light...
    I don't know... mumble mumble....

    It is a wonderful image. I like to get close to it and it should be printed A2 size with a big white border, so that the image part is A3 or

    A3+. The light has a very special quality.

    Thank you Nicola and Steve

    The crop was intentionally done with the left light at the corner because I think - still do - it's the best composition.
    However, I do have made a small correction in perspective or / and lens correction.

    I have done this work with two layers, both as smart object. One for the brighter areas and another with the shadows at the left.

    Thank you guys for commenting

    I like the final version very much. I feel that the light in the upper left adds to the picture. A better way of framing the scene.

    The final version is my pick.
    A fine B&W image indeed!
