Cheap Street Stream

Versions (Before and After)Version Help

Add Comment

Try saying that six times quickly. On a recent visit passing through Frome, a very pretty town in Somerset and somewhere I hadn't been before, we came across Cheap Street. This historic thoroughfare has retained its character over the centuries, including this "leat", which carries water from the stream beneath St John's Church. A chat with a resident was very interesting, and she recounted that in centuries past, people used the leat to dispose of all sorts of things. It's still retained as an essential part of the local character and delights children, who apparently love to drop things in it and watch them race downhill.
I've used Nik to try to give a sense of age, and also to help disguise any modern appearances, and it looked best to me in mono, although I'll put a colour version up as well.
Thanks for looking. Allan

Lovely Allan, and a very interesting narrative to accompany this image.

Very nice and well done.

Theres some nice moss greens in the colour that the mono doesnt have, and they can be picked up using the green slider in the mono conversion process. I tried this in a mod.

The effort put into the conversion was well worth it, Allan. You've achieved the desired effect very well.

I've seen one of these 'leats' somewhere on my travels, I think it may have been in Wells, Somerset. A fine shot, Allan, and mono wins it for me, though it does lose out on showing the green moss 😃👍

A real carry over from the past. However. I do wonder, though, how many sprained ankles does it create in a year? Interesting notes, Allan, and both images are good, with a slight leaning to the mono.

Thanks for the mod, Willie. I agree about the moss, which is mainly why I was torn between mono and colour.

Interesting subject beautifully captured. I shudder to think what would have been in the stream in the middle ages !!!
As for colour v b/w, I like both, perhaps a slight preference for the colour for once.

A genuine medieval sewer, Allan, though in the 14th century it would not have been paved so elegantly.
I love your use of such a low pov and a perspective view that seems to vanish into the mists of time.
