photoblog image Jamie's Farm #3

Jamie's Farm #3

One of my Camera Club members runs a farm and in June some of us members spent an evening there with our cameras.

This shot, which has had a dash of Topaz processing, is of my Club's Treasurer busy at his other hobby of sketching, in this case, but he is also quite an accomplished artist with watercolours and accryllics as well.

Love this scene, Brian...old workhorse gets its 15 minutes of fame!

[I suppose the same could be said for the tractor, too! grin]
Brian Walbey: I think the tractor has seen better days Ray.

Some people get all the talent Brian...

Nice shot btw
Brian Walbey: Malcolm is quite a good artist Chris, most of his pictures are very bold in design and colour.

You all had willing and cooperative models, I see, Brian. smile
Brian Walbey: Well actually Malcolm didn't know I was taking this, he will see it at the club in a few weeks time for the first time.
Clever chap, all that artistic ability and he can cook the books too grin


I'm enjoying your evening out Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, there are some more club outing sets to come very soon.

Topaz always adds that extra zest to an image, very nice Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tony, I use mild Topaz most of the time these days.
Why is it that farmers just dump obsolete equipment in the nearest field ..... Mind you it does make for great photography

richard
Brian Walbey: Most farms seem to have old plant dumped everywhere Richard, actually Jamie has tidied it up somewhat from a year or two ago.
Great shot Brian. I always wonder why farmers spend a small fortune on their equipment, whic is left out in the fields to rust.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila. It seems as though they are buying new stuff all the time, perhaps there are tax breaks they take advantage of.

lovely rural classic
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie.
Nice candid Sir.....
That Sketching and Paininting is totally beyond me.. sorta like Singing and dancing.....
Brian Walbey: I can sing and I used to dance in shows when I was younger but painting is also out of my abilities as well.
Nice shot, Brian - looks as that that harrow, or whatever, is set to stay there! smile
Brian Walbey: I suspect it hadn't moved for quite a time Tom.
Topaz looks so much like HDR, only less overdone! Great image Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Marion. I now use just a mild touch of Topaz most of the time but I will be interested to see what you say about my Friday offering, the last in this series.
Well processed Brian..A wonderfarm image.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ron.
Lucky man to be able to paint and sketch, good capture the old tractor too smile
Brian Walbey: I've never been any good with pencils, pens and paints Linda.
Your friend obviously has a very relaxed attitude to farming, which is great for photographers and artists. I still think it needs a couple or more goats.
Brian Walbey: If we go back next year I will get Jamie to hire in a couple of goats for the evening Janet, oh and send the invoice to you grin
Nice subject matter, I don't use Topaz but find the Photomatix HDR tone-mapping tool very useful.
Brian Walbey: I have the trial version of Photomatix but as Topaz costs some £40 I decided not to splash out further for the former.

I admire people with the skills to translate what they see into a sketch or painting. Lovely colours int he old machine in this and some fine detail, too.
Brian Walbey: Yes Malcolm likes to paint generally in bold strokes and colours but does some good work. Often he uses his photos as the starting point for his paintings.
This is a great scene, Brian. I think you have captured it so well. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn.
like this effect Brian, the guy is well talented then
Brian Walbey: Thanks Derek. yes malcolm produces some very good paintings.
