Photo for the Week – 38 -China

Anyone for Tea

The topic this week is China. For my choice, I photographed this beautiful pink and white bone china teapot at Chiddingstone Castle.

So for your submission this week, it can be either crockery or anything oriental. Maybe a photograph of a trip to China. As long as it reflects China in one form or another, the task this week is very varied.

Red Sky at Nostell

Red sky

As we headed towards North Yorkshire we stopped at a place called Nostell in West Yorkshire.  We strolled around the grounds and headed towards the lake where the red sky caught my eye.

One Word Sunday – Volume

On our way to North Yorkshire we visited Anglesey Abbey in Cambridgeshire, and in one of the rooms, was this pianist who was cranking up the volume on this piano.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #63 – Magical

“There is a secret garden where miracles and magic abound, and it’s available to anyone who makes the choice to visit here.” ~Dr Wayne Dyer

To me, the ‘secret garden’ has to be woodlands.  Where you never know what is around the corner or the next tree.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Something new

Llandudno Sea Front

This week’s topic set by Nancy on her Photo a Week Challenge is called something new.  ‘Something new’ has many connotations.  It could mean a photograph of something you’ve just purchased, a photograph of a new baby or doing something for the first time.

Like in my photo above.  Recently I have been admiring black and white fine art photography and I thought I would give it a try.  Mainly fine-art photography is architecture but I wanted to see if it could work with a landscape image.   And I am pleased to say it did.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Traditions

Miss Haversham

And we normally visit Rochester Christmas Dickens Festival where you see Miss Haversham stroll through the High Street. Just in front of the Cathedral in Rochester High Street, is the War Memorial.

Truck Stop

One Word Sunday – Monumental

Tower Bridge

Photograph of Tower Bridge in London

The theme this week is monumental… even though it is a bridge in London… Tower Bridge is very monumental and a well-known landmark.  The above image has been given an impressionistic paint-effect using Topaz Impression 2.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Focus

Greenwich Tall Ship

A photograph of one of the tall ships on the River Thames during the Tall Ships Festival in London 2014.

I wanted the focus to be on the tall ship and not the building.  So I used a lot of radial filters to highlight the ship by increasing the exposure and a few graduated filters to darken and soften the areas around the ship.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #62: Silhouettes

The topic for this weeks Lens-Artists challenge is called Silhouettes.  And for my entries, I am showcasing a couple of images I took in the past.  And I think monochrome images are great to show off silhouettes.

My first is the Greenwich Maritime Museum, in London.

Photo for the Week – 37 -Vases

Chiddingstone Castle

First of all, I want to say, I am reviving the Photo for the Week Challenge.  And from now on it will be a weekly challenge, hosted on a Monday.  I did stop the challenge because of time, however, with the winter months now coming our way, I thought I would revive the challenge.

So this week’s Topic is Vases.  Do you have a special vase for flowers?  If so show us your vase or a photo of a vase taken, perhaps in a stately home.  Like the vases above which were photographed at Chiddingstone Castle.


Next Week’s Challenge is China

The Calibration Panel in Lightroom Develop module

Let me start by saying that is one panel I never play with. Well, that was until today. Today I read an article on Photo Focus written by Serge Ramelli about things he wished he knew when he started to processing Landscape photos in Lightroom.

In the video at 5.34, he started to talk about using the Calibration Panel. And I found this of great interest. Naturally, I had to give it a go.
