What a stunning capture of the light from outside coming inside. There is a bit of an Asian art feel to this piece for some reason...Possibly the palette...There is also a sense of sublime that just emits from this piece. Beautiful work, Celeste!

This one "pops!" The contrast in values, and in hues, is very dramatic.

This is fabulous, Celeste! Interesting and strong image.

I like how you handled the windows. With the light coming through, many people make them too dark. Well done ~
