OK not my usual style .. and I know this will go down like the proverbial lead balloon but I have always been impressed by the work of the likes of thearmsofvenusdemilo and DaveU.
When at Grosmont we had a detour via the Church. As I'm not really into stained glas I tried a slightly different take on it.
I would appreciate any comments...
very harry potter...i love the real lenth that the little windows give you, and the arches on the left that bring you back to the book....i really get this picture,for me it works....
Good work - I prefer the all mono version 2, but would also be interested in seeing a full colour version. I think it would help if the text was a little lighter too, but a very good image all the same,
Excellent work,v1 the best for me.
Thanks Guys. I tried lightening the text, and indeed have done so for the print, but when I reduced it to 1000px I got some horrendous interference patterns, a bit like the weathermen's dodgy shirts when viewed on the TV in the 70's. The full colour one isn't really an option as I did all the work on individual RGB layers, as this was only intended to be mono. Its NOT designed to be a faithful rendition of the scene!
I have to dash now, but when I get back I will dig out the straight colour HDR scene before any work - trouble is you will see all the digital manipulation then!
V1 for me, that little touch of colour gives it the edge. Very haunting image and beautifully lit.
Great stuff. Well worked.
The colour version for me Nick. Love the arty feel to this. Darkly impressionist. For me the text is okay. It is in keeping with the rest of the image. Deserves to do well.
tandberg lives on in warney???
A superior bit of photography. Andy
Super.Love No.1.Inspired photography.
Excellent work Nick, was going to upload a mono myself today but this will put it to shame. Prefer #2 by the way.
Like the concept of this Nick and the details too -with good toning - For version two is my preferred images as your eyes are not distracted by the colours.
I like this - especially the second version. The B&W treatment, and the darkness over the pages, gives it an almost Satanic feel!
Like this Nick you have done a good job with the processing and its V2 only bcause its full mono.
Very effective. I like the touches of colour in V1 but V2 would have been just as eyecatching on its own.
great shot and great work
I do like the selective colour of V1 Nick but the shadows across the book are just a touch too much for me,they seem very uneven.I think if the shadow was consistent across the pages then it would be far more appealing.Yes the book may have overtaken the image without the shadows but the drop of colour in the bg would have off set that for me a bit.
Thanks everyone, Janet I tried reducing the shadow, and have done for the print - but it introduced some very wierd interference patterns when reduced to 1000px - cant explain it.
that is seriously high impact.. like it a lot...
Like it Nick, good focal point and you have the mood too, nice one.
Thanks everyone - Colin thats praise indeed it was one of your works that was the inspiration for this
V2 for me, Nick.
Very nicely shot.
Can't believe I missed this one when posted. An epic piece of work imo, a real nice and different shot Warney, I like this an awful lot.
Thanks everyone, I'm over the moon with the response as its completely different from my normal work - there are a couple of technical issues that need working on if I'm to continue with this style, but it does look good in print.
Different and all the better for it.
Moody stuff Nick! The shadows on the book are really heavy but the overall comp is ace. Full mono version for me btw.
