photoblog image Lynton Church

Lynton Church

This is the church of St.Mary at Lynton, Devon, and was taken in June last year.

I have "twiddled" with this a bit and in the church itself and the foreground I have got a slight effect of some sort, but for the life of me I can't remember what I done.

The sky is not the original as it was a bald white in colour and this here was done using the Clouds filter in Photoshop, not the most ideal of choices I feel.  Anyway, this is here to show that things don't always work out all the time.  Comments will be welcomed.

I will be back from holiday at the weekend and hope to catch up with comments and replies after that.

I find the clouds filter in photoshop somewhat unconvincing, and don't use it. It's a good picture of this lovely church. I've never been inside it..did you?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I think the cloud filter is a bit naff to tell you the truth, I was playing about with this picture. I did go in the church, it was well worth it.
I know Lynton but I don't think I've been here. Nice picture!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, it isn't far down the street from where the Cliff Lift departs, well worth a visit if you like churches.

I have to agree with Bill on this, the only use I have found for the clouds filter is to add a misty feel using B&W. Much better to import a real sky. The church looks an interesting building though, plenty of fine detail.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, I don't usually use this filter, I was messing about with PS on this occasion. It is a nice church inside and out, well worth a visit.
Brian if you burn in the sky it might look better.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Michael, I think you might be right, I really should have put a proper sky in rather than this.

Lovely framing, and the stones always add a layer of mystique and history to churches. I am always fascinated by the beauty of churches and their architecture and history, even though I am a Heathen with few redeaming features! ha ha smile
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you must have a touch of righteousness within you Paul, but churches always appeal to me for photographs. We went in St.Davids Cathedral, Wales last week and it was simple but very photogenic.
