Colours From The Past; Shadows For Today.

By Tooma
Another shot taken at the Burrell Collection in Glasgow. I was very attracted to the areas running alongside the windows where the strong sunshine was blazing through, and showed the centuries old beautifully coloured leaded stained glass panels in vivid light. I guess they had technology back then which provided non-fade colouring of glass. Very impressive.

As you have likely figured, I have rendered everything except the leaded panels in mono to emphasise the wonderful colours, and their significance, and, to show off the lovely Saturday Shadows.

I do like your use of selective colour retention here......works so well.
We live just outside Pollok Country Park with it's Burrell Collection and so were very frequent visitors here.
At present the Burrell is closed for renovation work, and is to be so for a total of 4 years I am told.

Thanks for your V, C, and a special thanks for your UA, Ronnie. Four years seems ridiculous for renovation work; I think they built it in less time. Smile
A wonderful image. I like the treatment you have done here to emphasise both the shadows mono and stain glass in colour. The effect is very lovely

Its a few years ago since I visited the Burrell and it looked in good "nick" then. Quite a clever idea to separate the colour from the mono or vice versa.

Love it !
