By Michaela_Solway
First of all a big thanks to Helenlinda, for awarding my FIRST UA
on Window on the Wall . Chuffed to bits.

Secondly, Moira, I may have a in focus wall shot as suggested. I will download later.

Thirdly, thank you for your suggestions on the composition for The Three Crosses . I had intended to get all 3 crosses fully in the shot, I will revist and see if I can tweak the frame.
This is exactly what I am looking for, to improve all the time.

Apprecations to all the above
Today, is same barn from Window on the wall
V2 & V3 processed

thanks for looking
Off to London on Wednesday, alas for work- Michaela

So sad to see such a lovely old Building left to rot like this. For a few thousand Pound and a lot of hard work, it could be as good as new Smile
I like both versions, but with a lean towards V1.

I rather like V2 here. Just that hint of colour, but it's dark, bleak, gritty. My only quibble is that those square areas of lighter-coloured masonry visible immediately inside the door and window frames need to be a bit darker, they look detached from the shadows.
It's a lovely subject, I'm enjoying these.

It is sad to see such a fine wee building in this state of neglect and decay, but you have captured it in very fine detail and presented it so attractively, although personally I am not so keen on V 3.
So 1/2 vote each to V 1 and 2.

A fine shot of this old abandoned building Michaela, I think John is a bit optimistic with regards to its refurbishment, It's a good job he's not a property developer for a living. I hate to think what his bank manager would say!Wink

The stonework looks solid enough, guess you'd never get planning permission to turn it into something useful!! First two versions are very good, not too keen on v3.

v2 looks good. Jamie

I suppose I must be a bit cruel Michaela,
but I LOVE seeing old buildings like this !!
I would normally have a look inside,
but on this one,I think I would give that a miss !!
Super grotty shots.

V1 for me and what a delightful old wreck of a building it is.
You have captured the beauty in all it's glory even if it is derelict.
It is forever saved with your shot………

Three excellent images. I think V2s for me as it looks more mysterious, but all three versions very nicely done.

Interesting variety of comments.
On first glance I did like V3 but V1 probably my favorite. I guess I like light and colour!
The old ruin is a great subject regardless of processing.

I am drawn to V2, Michaela. The darker, slightly more sinister look, mysterious, unsafe. Works very well indeed.
Hope you survive London.Wink Or should that be, I hope London survives your visit.Grin
