Still catching up on the holiday snaps... we visited this National Trust property while down in Cornwall a few weeks ago.

Excellent set Gareth, you probably could have used a bit of key-stoning in the first image. Pretty sure the latest version of Photomatix has it built in....

What is key stoning?

I appreciate the photos of kitchen utensils, Gareth. What are the rounded shapes?

Keystoning is where a building seems to lean backwards in a photo. It can be resolved by using a tilt and shift lens - very expensive or in software - not nearly as expensive

Doesn’t Topaz have something similar?

Nice set Gareth.  I sometimes don't mind leaning verticals in some situations.  For me, it can on occasion serve to emphasise the relative size of a building.  I'm not sure, but I think the cones might be sugar (?)  It hasn't always been granulated or in cubes.  I'm intrigued though by what was so valuable to need to be locked up in the box in no. 7?

As Gatehouses go , that is a pretty imposing building Gareth!

Thanks, all.

Our local pub is called "The Sugar Loaf" - named after one of those cones.
Here's a very old (April 2002) photo of it with the sign.

I really don't know, John!  They're too uneven to be eggs and too clean to be potatoes.  Here's a larger version in colour.

I'm wondering if they might be sugar loaves.  Sugar was imported from the West Indies I guess, and was probably a valuable commodity in the same way tea was for a similar reason.

I thought they might be truffles... I know tea was kept in locked chests at one time.....

The perspective tool does the job in photoshop to adjust walls in those situations too . 
 A very interesting set Gareth .... intrigued to know just what those items really are in that chest too .
