photoblog image Sandringham #5

Sandringham #5

Following on from yesterdays picture of the cottages in the stables courtyard at Sandringham this is one of the cottages in close up.

I can't explain why I took a liking to this particular cottage but it just seemed so very English and "nice".

Just one more to go in this series so just for a change I will be posting on Saturday this week.

Time for a quick "brag", we had the 2008 awards presentation at my Club on Tuesday evening and I won the Open class, came second in the Themed class, and also second in the overall 2008 Championship so I am not too dissapointed with that.

Nice image. The light is a little flat, it'd be better late in the day or early in the AM, to get some shadows and contrasty areas. But the allure of the subject is certainly evident.
Cheers

Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob, I think I should have turned the brightness down a bit and brought a bit more contrast in via Levels but I'm glad you can see what attracted my attention.
I'm not surprised you won in the open class Brian: you are a very accomplished photographer - as this picture very adequately conveys
Brian Walbey: I'm blushing with pride at your very kind words Chris, thanks very much. Glad you like my picture.

Someone is taking a lot of care to look after this cottage, but it's probably not her maj!

Brian Walbey: No I don't suppose it is the Queen Ingrid, thanks for your comment.

Well done on your win at the the camera club, Brian; obviously judges who know quality when they see it! I like this view; it's a shame, though, that they need the handrails and a sign saying "Private". My house is private but I don't need a sign saying so!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, it's the only one with a handrail, I don't know why.
Lovely shot - great colours - and congratulations on the results.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jim, on both counts, for your comments.
