A Wet Day in Padstow

By TrevBatWCC    
Still racking the brain for what to upload! This is going back to Christmas 2014 which I spent away on holiday to Newquay in Cornwall. We'd had good weather until the coach outing on Boxing Day to Padstow, when it never stopped raining the whole day ☔ It's a very lovely coastal resort and such a shame it was so wet, and after taking a few images around the place had to take refuge in here, 'The London Inn' - a terrible ordeal!! 😁 I decided if I was to get wet on my outside I might as well get my inside wet with a beer. A few other fellow holidaymakers on our coachload had the same idea! 🍺😃 Thought the gloomy weather suited a mono conversion…

Many thanks to Val (Val Prowse) for her User Award on my previous upload, The Weaver's House , most appreciated 🏆👍

Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw, mono conversion in Nik Collection's Silver Efex Pro 2 and tweaked in Photoshop Elements 2020.

Thanks again to everyone for your vote & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 😃👍

Had to smile at the name of the pub when they are advertising it as a classic Cornwall pub, and serving great local food and ales...London isn't, last time I looked, that far south-west...Wink

What a good photo Trev - are you sure the sinister looking character in the pub doorway isn't you....Tongue
Superb processing - I like it a lot. Good one.

A great composition Trev and the image is made by the guy in the doorway with the cool hat who rumbled you on your candid street scene. I love days away like this when you have to endure the ordeal of sitting in a pub. 🍺 🍺 🍺 😄
