photoblog image Chained Up

Chained Up

Another camera club country walk and a set of old fence posts that have been chained together hoping that collectively they might stay up.  I decided to tone this as the chain and some of the wood seemed to be very old.

Scanned from a 1970's colour slide on my old Microtek FilmScan 35 some years ago, processed in CS3 and Topaz Adjust.  8/10

1970s? Really? You were good back then, Brian. smile Love it.
Brian Walbey: That's a very nice compliment, I have been doing this wonderful hobby of ours for over 40 years now and have hundreds of slides I could scan apart from my modern images.

Looks like a well used chain, Brian...I wonder if it still exists.
Brian Walbey: I don't know Ray, I took this upwards of 15 years ago I should think.

Lots of atmosphere in this Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris.
Nicely done Brian. The earlier one was the better of the two for me though
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. Tomorrow sees third post in the same style, I hope you like that one.

The processing links nicely with the old posts
Brian Walbey: I thought so too Richard, thanks.

I love that you're resurrecting these oldies but goodies, Brian. Good for you!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, two more weeks to come of old slides and then our family "Wedding of the Year", especially for you ladies.
A case of lock up your daughters Brian. I expect the elements have corroded this metal but of course salt would do very much the same
Brian Walbey: It is certainly quite old Stanley, it is at least 15 years since I took the photo.
great crop
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.

Terrific shot, love the processing. amazing what you can do with older photos
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, thanks Aussie.
Nicely done, Brian. You're so fortunate to have such a treasure trove of great slides to scan.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly. I have a lot more that will appear here from time to time, certainly for the next two weeks.

Chains have been used for good and evil Brian.
Brian Walbey: They have indeed Chad.
Good to see that the old slides can cross over onto the computer age. good scan and treatment Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet.
Good scan and fine image, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Take these chains and set me free. Nice close up. Thanks Brian for the visits while I was away.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.
Lovely textures and scanned really well again smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet.

I bet this would do well in a cometition, Brian; hopely the judges would love this (but they are a funny lot....) I like the textures on the wood and the chain.
Brian Walbey: Might give it a try one day Alan, not as my leading entry though, just as a banker. Thanks for your comment.
