Thanks for all the positive comments.  I also do agree that Danie's changes to tone down the bricks, especially in the bottom of the frame improves the shot. This was taken on a practical shoot in New Town on Danie's beginners photographic course last weekend.  The brief was to photograph textures with a theme for a set of three or so pictures, I had selected this as one of three all with brick textures, but this one really stood out for me and was my favourite of the day.

Very good shot Mark!!!  but i also prefer Danie’s version.  The foreground is less obvious and thus forces the eye to focus on the red light.

Nice photo Mark.  I do agree with Danie's version.  Die lig lyk of dit van binnekant die kamer moet skyn.  Met Mark se "original" foto is daar te veel lig wat buite die kamer is.  Looks more intriguing with the light shining from inside the room.

No need to be sorry when seeing differently. The reason why I toned down the bottom is that your eye wouldn't be drawn towards the bottom too easily.

Sorry Danie but I like Marks' version more.  His photo looks very natural and textured, I love the wall!!!

Well done, this shot deserves a feature too! Here's my edit according to Deon's advice.

Thanks for the input on this shot.  I had considered converting to Black and white and leaving the lamp red, but still need to work out how to do this in Lightroom.  Will be booking on one of the Lightroom workshops if time permits.
