My entry to Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Mirror images or reflections.
For this week's challenge set by Nancy Merrill entitled A photo a week - Street lights, I thought I would do a composition of an image I took of Westminster Bridge in London. The original photograph was shot in daylight, so I played around with the lighting and colour tones until I got a night [...]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asy-bMharpU Well today's tip isn't a 60 second one but about 8.50 minutes, but the bit that I found interesting was within the first 30 seconds.. about leaving space when taking photograhs in order to get a more pleasing crop in Lightroom. Laura talks about the Crop Tool in Lightroom as well as no-no's about [...]
For Nancy Merrill's Photo for the week challenge called attitude, I have choosen a picture I took at Dickensian Christmas back in 2013 of Miss Haversham. The attitude of Miss Haversham's relatives was one of not caring and only wanting her for her money. Miss Haversham who was a victim of her lover's greed, who [...]
Carrying on from Matt's Luminosity Colouring in Photoshop... I thought I would try this technique on a set of images which I turned into a panoramic shot of Penshurst Place. Oh boy, can you play around with the colours, using Matt's tutorial! The sky was bland, there was little detail there, but by using this [...]
My entry for Cee's flower of the day, is these beautiful bluebells. At the time when these bluebells were out, I was beginning to suffer from arthritis in my hips and couldn't bend down to photograph them. So I gave orders to the other half to kneel down and take the shot. So pleased [...]
As Leanne Cole is taking a break and there is no Monochrome Madness until possibly next month... I thought I would process and post this image as it was in my list of potential MM Photos. Again this is an image I found during my culling (which by the way is still on going). Only [...]
For today's flower of the day Cee posted a photograph of a rose. So I thought I would keep within her theme for today's flower, and have posted a photo of a yellow rose which was photographed within the Rose Garden at Nymans.
Today I was reading a blog post by Matt Kloskowski on luminosity colouring in Photoshop. Anyway here is the video from Matt explaining how it is done. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zs1iAzHgazQ So for my example I used the image below. By using the Colour Range tool I selected certain elements of the image and followed the instructions by [...]
And what I've learnt.. Well the first thing I learnt I have way too many images in my Lightroom Catalogue. I had over 44,500 images... my god that is a lot of photographs. Yes I can understand some photographers wanting to keep all their images... especially if they are photographing weddings, portraits etc. But for [...]
For today's entry to Cee's Flower of the Day - I thought I would use this photograph of delicate white flowers photographed at Kearsney Abbey Gardens.
My contribution to Cee's Flower of the Day - 13th August 2018
Another image I found whilst culling my Lightroom Catalogue, was this image of the harbour Lighthouse at Folkestone in Kent. One advantage of this culling is I am finding images to work on that I had completely forgot about. Please feel free to enter the Photo for the Week challenge - the instructions are [...]

For this weeks Weekly Prompt Photo Challenge - Food for thought I thought I would play around with a photograph of strawberries and cream.
For the flower of the day, curated by Cee Neuner, I thought I would process a photograph of a chrysanthemum which was photographed at the home of the late Sir Winston Churchill, located at Chartwell in Kent.
A monochrome photograph of a squirrel guarding hit nut as he posed for his photo.. this photograph was taken at Kelsey Park near Beckenham, London. Here is a coloured version of the same photograph. I like the coloured version, but my eye is being drawn to the monochrome photograph. What about you? Are you drawn [...]
One of my favourite flowers, has to be the hydrangea. And now that my garden is all finished, and when the time is right to plant them, I will be off out and buying a couple of hydrangeas to plant in tubs. So for todays flower of the day hosted by Cee Neuner, it has [...]
A monochrome photograph of Rochester Castle and Cathedral, taken from across the River Medway at Strood.
The lake opposite the visitor centre at Bedgebury Pinetum near Goudhurst in Kent. This photo was made up of a set of images to create a panoramic view of the lake, and was processed in Photoshop and Lightroom.
For Nadia Merrill's a photo a week challenge called Music, I decided on a photo of one of my mum's favourites singers... Frank Sinatra. This photograph was shot at Madame Tussauds when we visited Las Vegas back in May 2015. Just like my mum, I too love the voice of old blue eyes.
We were going through a lot of house renovation over the last few months... and our cameras were gathering dust. Anyway to cut a long story short... we are finished renovating.. the last bit being done Monday and Tuesday with the fascia and soffits being done. So Sunday came and we decided that was it... [...]
For my flower of the day challenge, hosted by Cee Neuner, I decided to post a photograph that we shot way back in March 2017 at Hall Place near Bexley in Kent. This little viola just struck me... with its vibrant colours and the deepness of its dark purple tones. In winter, I love seeing [...]
