and speaking of gloom, you should look up the picture called Vanité, by your quasi-namesake, the French 17th Century painter Philippe de Champaigne!
cf. for instance http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:StillLifeWithASkull.jpg
the filtering of the sky is a bit too symphonic to qualify as gloomy... The equivalent of a dark red filter on bw film, I'd say. Not gloomy, as such, then - but very good, indeed!
Wow. A very moody photograph and really a great capture. 6/6 anon...RAY
Dead end I would like how you all feel about this picture and how it relates to the theme "Gloom". Thanks in advance!
