  1. 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.

  2. 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. :)

  3. 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. :-)

  8. There is something about old buildings that really lends itself to black & white; great shot.

  9. Great shot and that does look like a workshop where ghosts might lurk.

  10. 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 am no expert at all in photography, if it was darker though would it look even more ghostly?...:-/ lol
    p.s. I wonder if changing it, you would pick up some orbs....very interesting...:-)))
