Purple Abbey

By RipleyExile
Roache Abbey from the rear. Strangely enough the light wasn't really lilac (or mauve as my wife calls it). No filters were used, but I think I got the white balance a bit wrong when converting the RAW file. Anyway, I quite liked the effect so left didn't bother having another go.

It came out nice, - looks like a blue filter was used.

Played with a mod.

Thanks all. I have done my own mod of what I would have probably posted if I'd got a more accurate white balance adjustment.

The fog and sunset were such a weird combination that day Alex. I'm not surprised you got the odd colours which work well IMHO. Produces a great atmosphere. Bill.

An air of mystery to this one.
