Looking Through The Window

By carper123
Taken a couple of weeks ago, derelict former brickworks at Hamill, nr Eastry, Kent. Wonderful lighting through the broken windows, although the lighting inside the building was quite poor. I have been having a few problems with the resized images not looking sharp, however they look very sharp on my laptop at home. Queried the problem with fellow members throught the forums, who were fantastic with advice, hope this one looks a bit sharper.

Windows within windows and a lovely reflection/light, Darryl. The glass looks sharp... enough to cut yourself on TongueGrinGrin

I've spent a while looking at this. I love the composition, with different planes dividing different areas of interest.
It looks as though you have focused on the far wall, I think my instinct here would be to focus on the glazing bar just to the left of the centre of the frame. For me that would create a greater sense of distance behind the broken glass.

When first confronted with the thumbnail I thought I was looking at a dolls' house. I'm relieved that this isn't the case; all the same, there is still the feeling of looking in to something that I really should not be seeing!
I like the tones, textures, shapes and shadows (and I love such old industrial buildings anyway) and the composition, of course. I tend to agree with Herself that I would prefer the focus just a smidgeon to the left. But that is a minor point.
This is stunning Darryl. Obviously I love it as you will see !!!

An interesting study from this old building and I like how you have captured the sunlight from a window behind you falling on the floor.
The far wall looks sharp although the f/g bars are a tad 'soft', Darryl.

I like this Darryl, an image which holds many tales. Hamhil is just down the road from me. Kent used to be one of the largest brick producers in the World, and is famous for its high quality clay that was gleaned from the wetland areas.

Next time you are in the area look me up...

Regards and I hope that you have a very Merry Christmas.

A great find. Very well seen and captured, Darryl. Windows within windows. Super lighting and amazing textures. Hope you didn't go too near that broken glass! - looks lethal.
