Coming to what I think is the finishing up of a painting I've been working on for some time, I decided to photograph it. The first photo is a panorama - that didn't quite take in the whole of it.

The next shot was a standard take the whole thing in the viewfinder, crop it and see what's there.

Different painting.

I don't think either one really gets it. Light shining in creates shadows within the painting - it's different no matter how I look - the angles, the light and, perhaps where I am in my head all contribute to, "I don't know..."

What do you think?
