Back in 2013, we visited Sheffield Park Gardens which is owned and maintained by the National Trust. The scenery is fantastic and the gardens are full of hidden treasures. Unfortunately all the times we have visited we have never seen the waterfall in action.. but I can imagine how beautiful if must be.
This is one of my favourite photographs of Sheffield House, which the public can’t visit. Which is a shame as I suspect the rooms are grand. But Sheffield House overlooks one of the lakes and the view from the house overlooking the gardens must be one of the best views ever.
I love the vibrancy of the colours and the drama in the skies… but I do love black and white photos so I converted it to black and white, did a few more adjustments in Lightroom, one being adding a radial filter and using the exposure slider I added a darken area to the edges,
I then added a light colour to this radial filter, which didn’t change it but gave it a new dimension.
Then for curiosity sake, I wondered what it would look like if I transformed it back to colour
In fact I love how it has given the picture a sultry look. I got the idea of transferring the black and white back to colour (reverse processing) from Leanne Cole’s photography blogs, who showed me how the process was done via these posts When the Sky Gives you Blah and Giving the Sky More, Something.
