Bolton Abbey

By flossie
Still digging through my pictures from Burnsall and Bolton Abbey, not many I was happy with really although in my defence it was the first outing of my new camera.
Loads of white skies, need to get some filters I think.
As always, comments are welcome

Nice B&W work Anne, unfortunataly flat featureless skys seem to be a curse at the moment.

likewise Anne,most of mine are 'maybe shots'
and most of my decent ones were this is nice although im never sure of a completely white sky, but it is a monotone, so i reckon it gets away with it. nice one

Thank you everyone

Tony, you're back, how are you? I absolutely love your version, tell me how you did it please. Is it easy? have so many skies I could do to replace, tried to follow the tutorial on here but got lost halfway through.

Hi Anne, I think easy is an understatement, I cloned a sky fom one of my shots, I never used any other tools to do the sky not even the selection tool, the only consideration I took was to start with a cloud near the church, so I did not have to select the area of sky that is visible through the gable end, I guess I was just being lazy.

Hope you are well, look forward to seeing more of your work, take careSmile

I like this Anne - has a 1950's travel book feel to it.
If you need a sky, just paste one in and then change the blend mode on the layer to darken or overlay. One of those will work and with such a difference in contrast, you might even get away without doing anything else.

A lovely shot of Bolton Abbey Anne . I just love Tony's sky added . What a difference it makes . Never thought of cloning in a sky ? Must try it .Hope you are well . I'm trying to juggle my beds to fit all my visitors in over the coming months !Even coming from Australia in July !

Thanks everyone, I'm really chuffed with Tony's version, the sky and the water really make the difference, glad you like mine too though.
I'll have a go at that sky, have plenty of pictures that need a new one ;o(

We all have shots with skies like that Anne. One of the problems with living in the UK, yet just occasionally we do get some good ones. Build up a collection of sky pictures that you can add to your images like this.

Good composition and it really suits B&W.

This looks quite stark. Works well. In BW you can also darken the sky by using a graduated filter Wink
