    Interesting story! You actually get time in between takes, which you use to take photos!

    Thanks to all you nice folks that criticed and liked my photo. It will be interesting to see where I place, maybe top five I hope....I thought it was an ordinary photo and nearly didn't enter it. I took it on the same day as a wedding shoot. The bride and groom where having a few snacks after the main photo shoot I had with them, down the river, so this was in between takes.
We arrived here at the function centre on the beautiful Swan River in Applecross, at the blue water grill. They have a few different rooms, and this cafe was beside the reception room that the bridal party hired, I loved the view outside and the lovely table arrangements.

    Beautifully composed and exposed, with great detail in the foreground. The pp has left the background a bit soft, but overall a great photo.

    Nicely backlit interior, I like how it brings out the bunch of flowers and everything on the table, Nice textures, except for the chair, a bit strange looking. The rather detailed features of the outside are sufficiently soft in comparison not to be disturbing. Very welcoming mood here!

    I do not like the strong HDR effect. Specially on the window frames and outside. Overall its a very nice photo. I like the composition and that you've added a table in front of the windows, and not just the windows.

    Interesting picture with those colors and contrasts.

    Like the contrast between the dark interior and bright outside. Don't usually care for such heavy tone-mapping, but here it adds interest to what otherwise would be a more ordinary scene.

    Looks like a high quality ad for the cafe, I'm sure the owners would love it. The top of the windows sagging away on both sides bothers me a bit, I would probably have cropped them off completely. The crispness of the foreground makes me think I could expect a good meal here. Well done.

    Love to know what a bleach bypass is. Good to see perspective correction. Nicely framed and exposure looks spot on. But there is a bit of a fake look to the exterior which troubles me; the interior I like so much I really want to know how you achieved the look (I really mean I welcome a step by step tutorial if you can).

    Very nicely processed, the interior is very well done. The bottom of the sky seems a little too hot along with a few brighter details outside.

    Good composition and on theme.

    The fore ground is very busy I would have lost the vase and cropped for the window frame only

    Lovely image and composition. I like your processing.

Jan 23, 2015
    Very dramatic effect. Nice shot.

Jan 23, 2015
    This is a lovely shot! Makes me wish I was there.
