I posted the top photo on a photography site for feed back. I have received 4 replies and they pretty much all said the same thing. The last one was the most feedback where the respondent questioned the spot of light on the wall, too much contrast and overly dark.
I haven't put the other two pictures up. I just finished the second one but I put one like it up and the comment then was that the open book was a distraction. Maybe so.
The third picture is just a beginning in the series of photos I took of these books hasn't been posted anywhere and doubt that I will either.
