Now here's something a little different....not a landscape, or flower.....not sure of a 'category', so apply one to suit yourself ..........

Attingham Park, near Shrewsbury, is a lovely walk, & the (presumably) wardens lodge has this lovely doorway, which I thought
was 'dripping' with 'character'......so I present it for your consideration.........V2 is the original colour shot, which I like, but I just
love 'sepia' images of old stuff !!


Many thanks for your lovely response to 'Forest Fire'.....glad you liked it !!!.Smile

What I tend to refer to in my own parlance as a "limited landscape", Keith, and the sort of shot I often try to seek out, most often with little success.
I do like this attention to a smaller part of the bigger picture, and this one of your's works very nicely, and like Sue I too prefer V 1 with the the sepia toning.......gives the original a sort of warm vintage feel.
Ronnie.

Both are good. Lots of 'an age past' character. But V1 for me too GrinGrin

I like V.2 best, because it shows up the different textures better, imo. Carol

Yes V1 for me also the sepia treatment seems right for the age of the ''Auld Bits and Bobs'' well spotted and toned Keith

Lots of character but I think the colour enhances it so v2 for me, Keith. The colour has an aged feel to it itself.

I know, from the words of my English friends, that this object (with a long nose) is not used often this summer, due to frequent rains... A very beautiful composition and yes, all these things seem to be very old! Smile

V2 for me - the brickwork is old and warm and set off beautifully by the white pillar - wonder if the bin is used for recycling deadheads and scattered leaves, obviously the watering can is only for show Wink .... Carol Grin

I recognize the watering can Keith,
and the other container looks like the container the mashed tatties came in for my school dinners !!
I hated school dinners and gardening about as much,
but don't mind your shot though !!

A beautifully captured image Keith, and it has to be V1 which pulls it all together - the coloured version "loses" something, maybe too much colour?

Normally I have an immediate preference but both of these look very good in their own right, Keith.

Hmm...ok...I'm edging towards V2. I just love the colour of those bricks and those greens below Smile
