photoblog image Calke Abbey Re-visited

Calke Abbey Re-visited

Converted to monochrome in Lightroom 4 with a final edit in Photoshop CS3. (2/21) You can see the colour shot I posted of this much visited stately home [ here ] to compare the two. I have posted several series of Calke and some of those images, and more, can be seen in my Audio/Visual sequence on YouTube [ here ] It runs for about 9 minutes should you have time to spare to watch it.

Going by Monday's "mixed" comments you'll either love or hate this series I think, it was very much done as a "mucking about" exercise just for the fun of it.

I like it, Brian.

I am wondering what it would look like if you squeezed it through one of those "HDR-like" filters...it might reveal the ghost that is lurking in one of those shadow-filled doorways...
Brian Walbey: I wonder ray, it has already had a touch of Topaz as well as the rest.
Somehow the processing makes it look "strong and solid". Can't explain that - they're just the words that seem to fit!
Brian Walbey: I can see what you mean Elizabeth, it is a fine building.

On my one visit to the Abbey, I had to make do with peering through the fence. Good to see it closer up. I like the strong contrast you have here.
Brian Walbey: If you are up this way when Calke is open at any time it would be worth returning Alan.
It works pretty well in B&W Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I thought so too.
Strong image Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.

Glad to see you are messing about with a bit of charcoal Brian
Brian Walbey: In the old days of clubs this might have been called "soot and whitewash"!!
Good B&W, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Makes a decent b&w Brian. Almost as over the top as mine today!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. A lot of this series is OTT., and meant to be so smile
