photoblog image Fun Week 2/5   Swithland Internment

Fun Week 2/5 Swithland Internment

All of this weeks images have been done purely for the fun of messing about so please don't even think of taking them seriously! :))

 

This was taken in the churchyard at Swithland, Leicestershire and shows the graves of the Butler family, the Earls of Lansborough.

 

I followed a magazine tutorial to turn this to an infra-red image.  I think it has worked in part but in the end I decided to finish it off with a sepia tone.

Actually this works very well Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris.
Infra sepia eh Brian ...a first on shutterchancesmile
Brian Walbey: You mean I've beaten you to it for once Bill. I might have beaten you to tomorrows style as well.
I thought this was a war graves scene, with the soldiers lined up perfectly in front of their sergeant-major! Perhaps that how the Butler family ran things - with precision.
Brian Walbey: There was certainly quite a few of them Sheila.

Brian Walbey: ort of standing to attention you mean.

Never tried infra red so I can't comment on your technique but however you've done it, it adds t othe scene.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.
Your treatment really suits the picture Brian, I like it smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda.
I love the precision of this image. I think the post processing has worked well, too. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rosalyn.

It looks almost as if it's frosty, one of the weirder effects of IR. Looks good for this picture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie, I think this is the first IR I've done in any medium.
I find the infra-red look never quite gets there, keep thinking about getting one of my older dslrs converted for infra-red.
Brian Walbey: It is one of those techniques I don't think Photoshop will ever get 100% correct John.
