James and I dodged the showers and went to the Weald and Downland in Singleton yesterday. We saw this chap working an old forge, it was dark and dusty with that great aroma you get from real fires.

The shot was hand held and I processed using the orton technique which gives it the soft blur and reds then I desaturated it to get an old feel.
F/4
1/125 sec exp
ISO 800
+ 2 step bias

Thanks for looking.

Two great shots, very well taken indeed, for me it has to be V1.

Two excellent shots, Ann, and in a situation where exposure is not so easy. You have done very well here and packed the frames with interest and detail. Of the two images, I prefer V 1. Very nice work.
Regards, Ronnie.

A great rendering of an 'olde worlde' scene, nicely framed with all the paraphenalia in the f/g......nice one ! I've created a sepia version to recreate an old photograph, plus smoke for a bit of atmosphere...regards...Nn.

Very nice for me it is v2 which has the warm tones of a working forge, nice work in both of them and some good detail too full of interest

Both good images and it would've been really difficult to choose between them if they'd been processed the same way. I'd be interested to see V1 destaurated, but without the Orton effect as I think that could work quite well too.

I must have too many distractions floating around my puny brain-box, but I hadn't noticed your V2 of "Ye old Forge".....& another great image with gorgeous colours & textures it is too ! I love these two shots, I've been to these 'living museums' myself in the past, but they've never been operational, so I've missed out on this type of shot. V2 has some great qualities about it that I find fascinating, & I couldn't stop myself having another bash at another mod.....I'll leave you to spot the changes....regards....Nn. Smile

Excellent shots - not a situation where I would have considered the Orton technique, but it's worked well!
