I've said more than once on SC that I always wanted to photograph this place when I see other peoples pictures, well this is my humble effort.
We were on a coach holiday and the coach driver called in for a five minute stop only. I was the only one to get off the coach because it was pouring with rain and I just grabbed three quick shots from the car park under the shelter of the trees.
I done a lot of cloning to take out people in coloured anoraks on the bridge and after the normal levels etc.I used the Orton Effect to give it this slightly graphic look.
Who knows, one day I might get back there again.
I don't wish to sound as if I am "blowing my own trumpet" but for the first time ever I won both classes at my camera clubs final competition of 2008 on Tuesday evening with pictures I have shown on Shutterchance.
In the "Open" class I won with "Ropes" (22nd.May) and gained a Highly Commended for "Clumber Park Chapel" (1st.April), and in the themed class "Three" I won with "3 x 3" (9th.January). It now remains to be seen if I pick up any silverwear at the Annual Dinner in December.
