Rochdale Canal

By ade_mcfade      
RAW version in Mods section

Out today with Steve and Mac, naff weather so we went to the canal at Slowerby Bridge and had some lunch - came out to a little blue sky and got a few shots before it went grey again.

This is where the Calder and Hebble splits from the Rochadale canal. A few moorings there, nice cobbled tow path etc.

Forgotten the name of the pub, was quite nice and a lovely pint of Landlord

Great image , brings back memories . I used to live near Rochdale and spent a lot of time on that stretch of canal. It now looks very clean. I moved to Devon just over two years ago.

thing I did differently on this Andy was to up the mid-tones, there was a lot of dark shadow, so thought I'd bring it out a little.

bit different to the normal way I do things I must admit.

Will put the RAW conversion in the MODS section

does the RAW look a little more "real" then...

may be tempted to re-post a version closer to the RAW actually..

I can see why you lifted the left hand side bringing out the detail on the trees which i would leave as is its the buildings that just dont look right perhaps a slight contrast boost or a bit of dodge and burn?.

Cheers Andy - I know where you're coming from.

I think I was trying to make a cheerful shot from one that didn't really fit the bill...

I'll leave more contrast in the final cut

cheers for you tips Smile

Has an industrial feel to this canal scene. The mood of change and that splash of colour make for a pleasant cameo Adrian. Ron.

This one turned out nice enough, good job we stuck it out grimley in the pub while the weather improved! Will have a go at mine now and see if there is much to salvage, cheers, Mac
