Great scene and composition James. I think I'd like to see it a lot darker, with pools of light. In the photo editing sw you use, can you add a soft-light layer? If you can, that'll give you a sense of what I mean.
I love the clarity of this black and white picture. You have good choices with your photographic subjects.By the way, the photoshop program is under drive test in the USA only. So you guys are pretty lucky to be able to sign up for free.We need to wait for our turn. :)
Thanks for the comments.Highton-Ridley = Thanks for the advise, I found the soft-light layer, so I can play around with it. Now I need to figure out how to control the pools of light. Stay tuned for tests. :-)
There is a ghostly quality, you are right. I agree with Mark, but I am one for deep dark patches.
Ohhhh....., I just know this will be my weeks favouritte!!
Very fitting for the subject - the place could absolutely do with a slight brush-up.
The composition is brilliant! I've always Love the natural lighting. Bravo!You may visit my entry at http://prettyfirefly.com
There is something about old buildings that really lends itself to black & white; great shot.
Great shot and that does look like a workshop where ghosts might lurk.
Well, I like the shot a lot, but I think "ghastly" might be a good word to add in your title..."A ghastly, ghostly workshop."Yikes. Where did you find this?
I have read to many crime-novels this summer... and this picture suits one of them perfectly! :)Perfect b/w-picture!
What an excellent choice for the monochrom subject, and a beautiful picture it is!
Wow, I like it very much.I am no expert at all in photography, if it was darker though would it look even more ghostly?...:-/ lolp.s. I wonder if changing it, you would pick up some orbs....very interesting...:-)))
James you photos are stunning and your blogs are great. I will come back and continue my perusing. Thanks for visiting Marvin's post!Smiles
Wow, what a fantastic room to photograph, and you've certainly done it justice.
My sort of shot! Stunning!
Hmmm I wonder what is under that cover. It is a bit scarey.
OOOOOOOOOOOOH ... this is spooky
I agree with Anne, so far this is my favourite;-) This picture has so much and in B&W its just perfect!
Marvelous monochrome setting for a kewl story ;--)Hugs and blessings,
A strong photo with a story. The bright spot from the skylight is just a bit blown.
Definitely an intriguing photo. Lots of contrast.
This is a great photo. Isn't it odd how we can find beauty even in destruction?
Very, very nice, James.
