Croome Court - The House 3/5

In the long gallery a half-hexagonal bay faces the garden. I am firmly convinced that the tree seen through the centre window was deliberately planted there to give that effect. The B.& W. version of this image (below) has been selected for an exhibition taking place in Leicester this coming weekend and a print of it is also on display as part of a selection of my clubs work currently being shown in a tearoom in the centre of Lougborough, I've called it 'Looking Through'.

Oh...give me color, please, Sir!
Brian Walbey: To be honest Ray I do actually prefer the B.& W.version, for camera club purposes, my main social activity, the colour version wouldn't have been selected for the exhibition in Leicester this weekend or public display this month locally.
Jolie vue sur cet arbre. Je préfère la photo en couleurs.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, I done the B.& W.version because that is more suitable for my camera club purposes.
Both nice Brian, well done.

You might win a prize with your picture Brian
Brian Walbey: The B.& W.version was in a club competition last month and got into the final half a dozen but sdaly didn't make it into the final three, still, as my notes say, it is on view publicly over the next few weeks.
Probably the most photographed tree there, Brian, (apart from the one with the wee house built around it). Congratulations on your B&W image being chosen for the upcoming exhibition.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, it is nice to have ones photos on public display now and again, I cannot understand people, and there are plenty in my club, who take loads of photos and never do anything with them, hence my being on SC, my Flickr blog and another devoted to railway images.

I remember being with you in this room when you took this picture. It/they turned out well, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I think you were standing more or less along side me Astrid, I can't recall whether you took any pictures of the window or not though.
Well done Brian! I am sure you are right about the tree!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.

Congratulations on this being selected Brian, the Windows certainly give a fine vista.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad.
The Colour version wins I think!

Excellent my dear sir. Fantastic to see the landscape in a series of rectangles and your composition is faultless.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Louis.

I, too, find the b&w version more interesting.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, as we say in my camera club "In B.& W.it has a bit more 'punch!'"
The tree deserves a central spot, Brian. Very nicely done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. I'm sure the tree must have been deliberately planted in that spot.

Both are lovely images - what a great framing for the tree.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Anne, I'm sure that framing of the tree must have been intentional.

Now I have chosen the colour version personally as I would have got more pleasure from that whilst enjoying my tea and cake, i’m Sure that tree was planted deliberately in that position.
Brian Walbey: I lkke th colour version but for camera club purposes the B.& W.one is better.
