Back to the Racecourse at Richmond, this morning. Not sure i've processed this right but the original was somewhat flat, so this is a bit of an experiment, i played with the curves a little. Would liked to have changed the background i think, but haven't worked out how to do it yet.

The racecourse was established in 1765 at Low Moor, and at it's height was comparable to York. The grandstand was built in 1776 by John Carr, but has fell into disrepair since the closure of the course in 1891,, with the top story being demolished in 1973.

Endless years of selective breeding, led to horses that could run faster than before, eventually the turns at Richmond became to tight for these horses to run safely, and in 1891 the course was condemned as unsafe and closed.

V2 is the info board with the only picture i could find of what it looked like.

All C&Cs welcome

Thanks for looking

Two excellent images, Den!
I like the inclusion of a hand in V2 which adds a lot to the photo.

I like V1, it's bleak, desolate, gritty. It captures English February.
I'm glad you haven't changed the background, it almost always looks false because it messes with the truth of light.
