Spring in Cropwell Bishop

By redstag  
Last week Rachel, my wife, asked me if we had any pictures of the village. My son was doing a project on the history of the village and wanted something to show the village as it is now.
Much to my shame I realised that I had lived here for over 13 years and not actually taken any pictures around the village.
This is the first of a series of about 8 different images. It is a 6 shot HDR processed using Photomatix 3.0.

Cropwell Bishop is one of a handful of villages in the vale of Belvoir (Pron Beever) which makes Stilton Cheese. The cheese takes its name from the village on the great North Road because this was where travellers would come across the cheese, it isn't actually made there at all.
It is believed that the village gets its name from the nearby hill which was known as Crop Hill.
The church is dedicated to St Giles.

I'll try and find out a bit more before I upload the next image.

That took quite a bit of patience, Crippo, you'd be amazed how many cars come through just after you've set a shot up! LOL.

It's very often the case that we ignore the stuff right on our doorsteps. Looks a nice village Jon, perhaps something in the FG would help, a lollipop lady or a speed camera maybe but perhaps they were not in your prop bag that day! LOL ,

Alan, yes, very close to Harby, drop in next time your passing maybe. A pint at the Wheatsheaf is highly recommended.
Mike, props not available, and don't mention speed cameras!!!!!

It's a lovely shot, a worthy image, more than just a record shot.
I'm the same myself, lived here over 15 years now and don't have any pictures of the village at all to speak of.
I can't 'see' anything that's here and there's always telegraph poles and streetlights spoiling the scene but I'm probably being too picky.
This has inspired me to have a go at photographing my local area more.
Cheers Smile

Rob you should try it, it is very challenging, but I've got a lot out of this exercise.

nice lead ins and well composed and equally well processed..

only slight crit I can come up with is the slight haloing with the trees but im anally retentive when it comes to that! Photomatrix hates trees!

Lovely image Jon, I expect you will have the locals queueing at your door to buy this series.

Oh dear Johnny, thought I'd done quite well with them, I do see what you mean, and it is an issue with photomatix.
