photoblog image Grace Darling's Grave, Bamburgh Re-visited

Grace Darling's Grave, Bamburgh Re-visited

Converted to monochrome in Lightroom 4 with a final edit in Photoshop CS3. (16/21)  You can see the colour shot I posted of this very famous grave [ here ] which was taken from a different angle to this conversion. This one, in landscape format gives more idea of the area surrounding the grave. This is my post number 1,700 since joining Shutterchance, where on earth have all the photos come from?

Brian Walbey: Well quite a few of that 1700 are scanned from films Ray, but I always carry plenty of memory cards with me these days.

Well she certainly deserved to have a fine grave Brian. This is a powerful image
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, it is indeed a very posh grave.
This is very elegant looking, Brian. Congrats on all those posts!!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. This lady deserved a grave like this after what she done, you might like to quickly scan through this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Darling to find out about her.

a too dark and sad photo to celebrate your 1,700 post number feast! Congratulation!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Philine.
I like the contrast work
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal, one of the benefits of a RAW file and Lightroom.
Good old Grace. a true Victorian heroine
Brian Walbey: Indeed Bill, she deserves a grave like this.
1700 eh? That's not a bad effort Brian smile
Brian Walbey: And plenty more to come all being well Bill.
I like both versions on this one.
Brian Walbey: I'm pleased to hear that Mary, I feel the same actually.

and you have kept a superb standard throughout Brian. I have just realised that I went through 2000 postings a week or so ago ... I hadn't realised.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I have many more to post, even if I never took another shot, which I hope I do of course, with my large stock of slides and negatives.
strong shot. love the high contrast in this
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.
I should have had a look here. Saw the memorial stone in the Darling family chapel on the Farne islands, which has verses from William Wordsworth poem about Grace. You realise how god fearing these people were, prepared to put their lives and fate in his hands as an act of faith.
Brian Walbey: I couldn't agree more John, and fortunately there are still a lot of people prepared to risk their lives saving others in the RNLI.
Quite a powerful image Brian.
Congratulations for your 1700th!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
This is timeless in b&w. ... Congrats on finding 1700 pix to post. ... ( I'm only at 500.)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jacquelyn.
Both versions work very well, Brian. Quite a milestone, well done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme.
