Eltham Court Palace in London

As many of you have gathered I am well and truly into this Powder Paint Effect. What I love about it.. is the simplicity of the processing and now I have figured away with using this in Lightroom; which is cutting down my processing workflow a little.  With only 10 days to go.. until Op Day.. I thought I would play around with a photograph from Eltham Court Palace.

A photograph of the Palace at Eltham Palace Gardens in London – Rework

 

Well not a lot has changed in the hip department… so going out and finding new locations to photograph has taken the back burner for the time being.  However, I have been asked to do another tutorial for Topaz Labs which I will be doing in the near future.. and what with Christmas fast approaching … and my processing time somewhat reduced I did manage to do a rework of a photo of the palace which I took at Eltham Palace Gardens in London back in June 2013.

Another Bridge… across the moat

Another Bridge… across the moat

As you walk around the moat of Eltham Palace Gardens, in the form of an L shape is the water, which you can walk around.   Connecting one side of the L shape is the formal gardens, which includes a rose garden, the other side that connects the L shape of the water is a long green, with formal bedding on one side and a wooden bridge that leads you to the meadows…

This is a picture of that wooden bridge…

Finally… Eltham Palace in the sun…

Finally… Eltham Palace in the sun…

Yes, we made it?  Every other time we went to Eltham Palace and Gardens in London, there has been grey clouds looming overhead… just waiting for us to get out of the car and pour their contents on us. 😀

Well Saturday was sunny and we headed off there… ploughed through the traffic to finally turn into Eltham Palace Gardens to find it SHUT. 😀 (Note to self… check opening times before heading out).  That slight hiccup didn’t deter us we visited somewhere else… Chistlehurst Caves.

Well today we ventured to Eltham Palace, in full knowledge that it was open, and explored the areas we had visited before.

This is the moat looking towards the bridge… which is main entrance to the Palace and Gardens

This picture is taken from the moat area looking up towards the rear of the Palace

Our final picture for this post is of that beautiful wisteria that climbs over the columns to frame the rear of the house perfectly.

Anyway we took cover and this is a shot looking out..  I had hoped to capture the rain but no.. it suddenly stopped so I shot this looking out from our cover towards the Great Hall.
