Paint shop anno 1935

The interior of a paint shop from 1935. One of the projects in the Zuiderzee museum. It was quite hard to get a "picture" from the window, the huge contrast of light didn't make it easy. Anyway I like the mood in this picture that was one of the reasons to share it on TL.

PP work, quite some adjustment of levels and curves, selected the window and did some additional adjustment in this area.

Hi Hans
Yes, it isn't always easy to take photos in a museum, but I think you have done well here.
It is interesting to see the the tools and furniture, but I think you have done a good job on the window. We can see the outside area rather clearly
Well done

Great view into the history. BR JV

Coucuo Hans,
Effectivement, ce n'est pas simple de capter l'extérieur... mais j'aime beaucoup le côté hors du temps qui en résulte
L'ambiance atelier est bienr ressentie
Bonne journée


Hi Hans
great presentation of the "painting shop". it by itself feels like a painting.
the window view enhances that sensation.
perfect capture of inspiring place and mood.

Hi Hans,
I think due to the extreme light & dark areas in this image,it may have been a perfect situation for an HDR capture.

Though the exterior is OE it still blends with the interior
capture. You have certainly captured the feel of the 1935 paint shop . I like the rays on the old open ledger.

Very nice use of ambient light Hans! AND you managed to keep the outdoors well seen, even if it's bright out there! Love this type of shot, nice textures and things to see. Well done on the sharpness here! The framing is nice too!

yes a tough shot for sure, but you did very well, i can still see the detail out the window and its not a complete blow out which most would have taking a shot like this, the interior also exposed so well with fine details, very nice,
thanks scott

Hi Hans,
Perfect use of available lighting in this old ambiented workshop with a nice panorama through the window.
Excellent PP work and great management in exposure.

Hi Brian,
What a nice ambience in this interior!
We can smell the oil painting and also those of the old books. The scene behind the windows is in itself a nice painting!
Excellent play of shadows and light rendered with smoothness. Bravo! Annie

Bonjour Hans,
Magnifique photo de cet atelier de peinture d'une autre époque. La lumière est bonne malgré la fenêtre qui pourrait nous jouer des tours. On a l'impression que le peintre va revenir après sa pause.
Merci et bonne journée.

This is a nice shot Hans.

You did well to get detail in both interior and exterior, which must have been an exposure juggling act.
