Very nice. I have never been to your house, which is just as well. I would probably make off with both the cute girl AND the chair under the window.

I like this one. It's visually very interesting with the sharp contrast between very bright and very not bright

Back-lit or rim-lit can be a nightmare. I use the spot meter in the camera and pick the place that I'd like to be correctly exposed. And the black leather couch next to the bright of the window are so far off as to what a "proper" exposure would be that there isn't a middle tone.

Master Craftsman Uncle Neal made the chair. This photo was made at his and Aunt Ada's house in Lincoln, NE in October.

Light is something I really struggle with--I try really hard to get it right, but I need to know more about how my camera works to do a good job of adjusting for less than ideal conditions
