photoblog image Shugborough Hall Re-visited

Shugborough Hall Re-visited

Converted to monochrome in Lightroom 4 with a final edit in Photoshop CS3. (11/21)  You can see the colour shot I posted of Shugborough Hall [ here ] to compare the two. I notice on the colour version some very fine down pipeage stands out in white which should please our good friend Chad, but in this version it becomes even more prominent. Nothing like keeping people happy. Smile

Nope!

Still an ugly edifice, even in soothing "50 shades of Grey", Brian.

Fine foto, though.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for the last bit Ray, I do agree about your feelings regarding the building, i said that when I posted the colour original I recall.
This image is more dramatic than the coloured version Brian... good treatment....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.
I like this one.
Brian Walbey: I like the way you've come back from your family long weekend and seem to like all my postings Elizabeth, thanks for catching up with them all.

Sometimes we like to please some of the people all of the time. grin
Brian Walbey: Well there certainly seems to be more likes than not likes with this one Ginnie.
I think Shugborough looks better in b&w Brian
Brian Walbey: So do I Bill, although I still don't like its architecture very much.

You are very good at keeping people happy Brian
Brian Walbey: So it would seem Chris.

I remember commenting on the importance of the portico Brian.
Brian Walbey: Without that it would look even worse I think Chad.
such grandeur
Brian Walbey: Thanks to the pillars I think Chantal, a bit plain otherwise.

an elegant, neoclassic building! There is some gutteridge for Chad's eyes!
Brian Walbey: I do think that if the pillars weren't there it would be rather plain and featureless.
Looks very fine in B&W too, Brian. Those iconic columns are massive and give the building a rather grand appearance.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly. I feel the pillars give it the grandeur, without them it would be rather plain.
I prefer this B&W version Brian!
Brian Walbey: So do I Richard, the stone is not the finest of colours.

an imposing building Brian, looks good in B&W
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sarah, I like this version better.

The colour version was not so long ago, Brian - again the feel is so different
Brian Walbey: Inded Lisl, I prefer this version to be honest.
Good tones to this Brian, It's always surprising how many variations there can be when interpreting a shot in b&w
Brian Walbey: Indeed John, and I feel the building looks better in mono.

It looks quite austere like this. Apart from the floodlights, little appears to have changed since it was built.
Brian Walbey: Not the most attractive of buildings as I said a few weeks back.
I like the blue trim in the colour version, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Perhaps I should have tried to leave that in.
