Mrs Dawes’ Room

This room is completely unique to the rest of the home. Her feminine charm is on display here. The deep wood mantles and dark tones are gone. This room is bright in comparison to the rest of the home. The paining above the fire place is of their son. He died in a drowning accident in Lake Geneva, WI. To the right was a painting of their daughter. To the left were some ancestors.

Vice President Dawes' wife kept this room to entertain her guests and honor her son who passed away at the age of 21.

I processed this picture with HDR processing. There were three exposures as -2, 0, +2 exposure values. I tried to bring out the colors as much as possible without breaking reality. I also used Adobe Camera Raw to adjust the light of the scene to better connect with what the scene felt like.
