The "Mad" Chair

First attempt at doing some editing ... Got a Adobe Elements 10- Trial to see how i can work with it ..
Thinking i may have to get it and spend more time on that program .. Can do some cool stuff \m/

What do u all think ? Comments encouraged for this one ..

When the viewer first lay their eyes upon this piece, they will immediately see the vibrant color of the chair, the obvious focus of the photograph, in contrast to the surrounding gloom. The use of the Rule of Thirds makes the composition visually pleasing and balanced, your eyes go from the chair to the hanging lights and finally to the window, thus effectively taking you throughout the entire artwork. The dingy, forgotten look of the room just adds to the dread of the suffocating closeness of the walls. It might have been the chair where inmates spent their last moments, their screams echoing off the walls, or maybe it was a chair where haircuts were an everyday occurrence. The past holds many secrets, some too dreadful to fathom...
