photoblog image Burnham Overy Staithe Re-visited

Burnham Overy Staithe Re-visited

Converted to monochrome in Lightroom 4 with a final edit in Photoshop CS3. (12/21)  You can see the colour shot I posted of this small Norfolk coastal village [ here ] to compare the two. This was one of the images I posted during my first year on SC.. I decided to convert the main image to monochrome and kept the frame in colour.

Great image I like these old ribbed boats
Brian Walbey: Thanks vintage.
beautiful shot. well done in b/w
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.
Very effective Brian! I really like this, and the color frame works well!
Brian Walbey: Yes I thought it looked quite good leaving the frame in colour. (BTW. I'm almost at the end of book 4, a lady is patiently waiting for me to finish it!)
Wonderful image in b/w Brian... the boats look like they are all taking a napsmile....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. It was mid to low tide at the time we were there.

sn't it amazing how an image can have two sides of the same coin when you convert it to monochrome, Brian. This is an excellent case in point. Well done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie I know what you mean, some images cry out to be only in a particular medium, this does work both ways doesn't it.

A fine image Brian: I have happy memories of this place
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris. All along that bit of coast are these fine little coastal villages.

You are having fun revisiting your earlier images, Brian
Brian Walbey: I am indeed Lisl, even if a few of them are a bit OTT.
This is a stunner Brian! Well done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.

Both images are very good and give different feels. My prejudice for colour wins, though.
Brian Walbey: Fair enough Alan, I'm a bit inclined towards Ginnie's feeling about this one, that it works reasonably well in both mediums.

At fist I thought this was the creek at Blakeney but Burnham Overy has its own magic as well.
Brian Walbey: Very similar sorts of places aren't they, we keep talking about going up that way again, we have never actually stayed anywhere between Thornham and Sheringham, it would be good to do that in a nice little cottage somewhere.
Works a treat in b&w Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
what a great boat friday addition
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
Strangely, I prefer the converted image which is a surprise to me.
Brian Walbey: I'm pleased to hear that Mary, Ginnie and I think it is one of those images that woks quite well in either medium.

I love quite more the colourful photo with the brown sails - but this is a fine Boat Friday photo, too!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, I actually like both versions, but then I'm allowed to because I took it smile

Lovely Brian, i like the composition
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sarah.
Very pleasing mono again Brian and composition also.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.
Great B&W
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
The foreground boat has too much good colour to ignore, Brian. (In fact, Overy Staithe as a whole has too much colour to ignore!)
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Graeme, at least it is there in the original version.
The original is wonderful Brian, but I think this has the edge, for me - I really like this smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.

These old boats have a fantastic shape, perfect subject in mono
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tony, there are boats of all ages laying about in these coastal inlets.
