photoblog image Saltaire Mill Re-visited

Saltaire Mill Re-visited

Converted to monochrome in Lightroom 4 with a final edit in Photoshop CS3. (10/21)  You can see the colour shot I posted of the old mill at Saltaire [ here ] to compare the two. Presumably because of the tonal range in this the towers seem to stand out almost in 3D against the sky, an unexpected effect I quite like.

I like your twiddles on this Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I think the subject suits the "messing about" more than some of the others.

Colour version for me
Brian Walbey: I will admit the colour version had been well twiddled before I posted it, especially in Topaz, so this version has really been "messed about"!
hasrd contrats, makes the lines
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
Indeed they do,Brian,I keep considering a visit here.
Brian Walbey: We only had a short time in Saltaire, (on a coach) and there was a photo club exhibition on elsewhere so didn't get time to go inside the mill, but I gather there is a lot to see inside.
It rained on the day we planned a visit here, wanted to see Hockney's gallery also, It will have to wait to the next time. I understand the walk along the canal here also reveals a lot of industrial heritage also. Strong treatment.
Brian Walbey: We were only there a short time and didn't walk very far but there are certainly streets of terraced houses with back alleyways and quite a lot of industrial buildings plus a very fine chapel/church next door to the mill.

I personally would prefer the colour version of this photo because of the warm coloured stone. I agree that the towers seem to stand out almost in 3D.
Brian Walbey: I actually like both versions Philine, the 3D thing is a bit of a bonus.

The architect must have been an Italianate fanatic Brian.
Brian Walbey: It certainly has that sort of look about it Chad.
As you say, quite 3d!
Brian Walbey: Bit of a bonus that Chad.
I really like your treatment Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Works well either way Brian
Brian Walbey: That's what I thought Bill.

I am one of a few that like the coloured one better.
Great picture though.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, I'm pleased you like at least one version, this one had the Yellowbear treatment smile

It looks to be a fabulous building. Although I've been passed it several times, I've never had the chance to visit it. The architecture is very impressive.
Brian Walbey: We didn't get inside, it was a short call-in on a weekend coach holiday, so just the outside and a visit to the local tearoom, as usual.
I really like this one, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, quite a historic building this one within our industrial heritage.
Colour version again, for me, Brian. It seems to have more depth and feel.
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Graeme, in the old days this version might well have been referred to as "soot and whitewash!"
