A seasonal selection of 15 shots from my trip around Saltaire with Barbara Hirst last Wednesday, starting with the lovely Lion that guards one of the gateposts at the entry of Victoria hall. I have chosen him because this image clearly identifies this series as Saltaire. I love the way that the Autumn leaves are framing him and the fact that he is completely un-phased by the fallen leaf nestling in his groin! The weather was rubbish - grey, grim and drizzly - but it was a fascinating afternoon in good company and I got loads of photographs.
The rest of the series is about Autumn foliage and the effects I got by applying various effects to the originals. For the most part I have put the original first then the processed images after it. I confess I rather like the painted effects I got from using Topaz Simplify, but I leave judgement down to you. We are all different and we all like different things, which is what makes this site so interesting.
Anyway, thanks for looking and I hope you like at least some of them.
