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.
1/125 sec exp
+ 2 step bias
Thanks for looking.

You have done well with this shot
I can smell it from here
Two great shots, very well taken indeed, for me it has to be V1.
V1 for me, a great shot.
Can learn a lot looking at what other people achieve - and you have achieved very well.
good morning ann two wonderful captures brilliant colours and detail v2 for me today a gem
Nice set. Super tones and packed with interest, Patti
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.
Really like this Orton Effect in V1, works super with this shot. Both great images but prefer V1 Ann............Sandy
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.
2 Great images Ann, love the work you have done.
Thanks Nik for the mod, love the mood with the smoke and sepia, really great. Thanks for taking the time. Ann
i do like the look and feel of v1. the mod works well too.lesley
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.
Love V2, well done!
Good. interesting and nicely exposed pictures.
I really like both yours and the modification, they both look really good but in different ways.
Good work here, Ann. Prefer the colours & composition of V2.
I like V2 for the vibrant colour best Ann - I understand that you wanted to give it and older feel - but still V2 for me - Ina
Excellent capture Ann and I like the processing in v1.
Love what you ahev done in V1 Ann
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.
Wow Nik, that new mod is positively alive, with the rich colour and extra flames and smoke. I love it. Ann
Just cannot decide which I like better. Great shots Maybe #1 excellent anyway Norma
2 great shots, I like the way V1 has turned out.
V1 is excellent takes you back in time i think you have done great work on this click
I really like these two images, so very interesting, and I love the processing in V1, so atmospheric.
Two fine versions of this master craftsman hard at work
Excellent shots - not a situation where I would have considered the Orton technique, but it's worked well!
