Peckover House Garden (1 of a few)

I tried several different versions of this corner of the stable yard at Peckover House but this, in the end, is the one I felt most pleased with. Perhaps I should have posted a collage with all the versions on it so you could choose which you liked best. I'm going to use it at my camera club and call it "Corner Of The Yard", it has already been on display in a small annual exhibition of one of the clubs in Leicester.

I quite like this version Brian! Very nicely framed too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Well I like it - hope the club does too!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, I will try it out next season which starts in September.
It's definitely a corner that has a little bit of everything to see, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Ginnie, a bit timeless as we say on SC.

There's plenty of details here for the judges to appreciate Brian
Brian Walbey: I hope so Chris, I will try it out next season which starts in September.
The sepia is a bit strong for me Brian. Nice composition though
Brian Walbey: I did hum and har over the depth of the sepia to be honest and decided this is how I like it, hopefully a judge will too one day, I'm about to get a 16x12 print done of it.
It makes me think of how hard life was physically Brian.
Brian Walbey: I always feel that when I see such things Chad, and everything was always strictly functional.

Quite interesting - the hooks on the wall has me thinking a lot of washing was done in that trough. That iron is so heavy, you won't have to heat it, to flatten clothes.

I like the conversion you have done here.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Louis. I did wonder if the hooks were for the workers to hang their working coats etc.on when they are pushing that great big roller across the grass, that must have been hard work.
It is a very good shot for monotone. I would like to borrow that roller.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, you would definitely need some help to push/pull that roller though, they are usually very heavy.

At least they didn't suffer from obesity through lack of exercise.
Brian Walbey: No doubt there wasn't as many 'fat' people in those days as there are today, not with all the manual labour required to do stuff.
I like the sepia tone
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal, Bill has made me wonder if it is just a bit too heavily toned, a bit late now though.
All looking very spic and span isn't it. You have captured it very nicely Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, I guess back in the old days it wouldn't have been quite so tidy.

"...in an English country garden...". B&W suits perfectly. The coat hoots jar, though; they seem out of place.
Brian Walbey: Yes I don't think the coat hooks are of the older period but they were there, I could have cloned them out quite easily.
this version turned out perfect Ginnie....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.
i did mean to call you Brian... duh!!!!
....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Apology accepted Peter smile

I love the old traditional roller, wonderful. Afraid I use a water filler one these days.
Brian Walbey: Even the water filled ones are heavy to push aren't they.
