A Slave's View
I shot this while standing in the doorway of a slave quarters building that sits on the grounds of the McLean House in Appomattox Court House National Historical Site, VA. I used the on-camera pop-up flash and then brought out the interior detail using the fill light tool in the Sigma Photo Pro 4 RAW conversion software.

Hi Roger - great shot here and very deft use of fill flash plus post processing. You've struck a skillful balance in your exposure between outdoors and indoors. From your thumbnail I assumed you had used HDR!

I also like the off-center positioning of the window to create the compositional balance that you have achieved here. And of course the subject itself is some sobering food for thought.

Well done, thank you for sharing!
