Church Hill Cottages

By TrevBatWCC    
One from back in 2014 when I went on holiday to the Isle of Wight. The loveliest village on the island has to be here, Godshill, with its beautiful thatched cottages. Walking up the hill to the church and turning the corner, you have the view as shown in the version, originally uploaded in May 2014.
The lead image here is a re-processed working of the shot taken from the top of the short road leading up to the church and looking back. Thought it a bit different to the bog-standard image of the version!

Many thanks to Ian (olmeister6) and Carole (Monochrome2004) for their User Awards on my previous upload, La Cure Gourmande La Cure Gourmande, most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's plugins, and Photoshop Elements 2020.

Thanks again to everyone for your vote & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 😃👍

The England of our dreams, of wartime morale-boosting posters. It's still out there somewhere.

Beautifully worked images Trev. Love the crisp and saturated colour in them. Not over done, just perfect.
