    Lovely reminder of the days when trains had some character.
  2. Bradgate Park

    Hello Polly, thank you for your comments. Yes, took me a while to train those gulls to sit still for 8 seconds but it was worth it. Hadn't thought of the Wuthering Heights similarity but I see what you mean.
  3. Long defunct petrol station in Bodie, a ghost town in a remote corner of California.
  4. Down in the Dark Metro

    There are so many obviously spectacular photo opportunities in Barcelona but your have created something spectacular from something fairly mundane - love it!
  5. Bradgate Park

    Thanks Kev. I liked No 1 too but the one I was most pleased with was no 2 because it was the first time I had a decent result from a long exposure.
  6. Bradgate Park

    Took a stroll around Bradgate Park, Leicester on Wednesday. It was formerly the estate of the Grey family and the home of the tragic Lady Jane Grey. The ruins of the house seem to be an appropriate memorial to the nine days queen.

    Yes I am aware of that but I am still tempted to apply my finer brush strokes with a sledge hammer. Yes, I only shoot in RAW.
  8. A Winter Morning.

    Thanks for these comments, Kev. TBH I don't actually understand chromatic aberration (I will google it in a minute) but I clicked the tick box in Lightroom and it didn't seem to do anything. I clicked 'Enable Profile Corrections' (which I also don't understand) and it did make adjustments. also eased of on some of the colour and I admit I am happier with the result. Here it is.
  9. HAIR

    Terrific, Fuji - looks like an album cover!
  10. A Winter Morning.

    Well we're just making friends at the moment but if it has the BP seal of approval, that's good enough for me!
  11. Biker Lizard.......

    Such a good idea. Might have to comandeer some of my grandaughter's toys to do something similar
  12. Evening in Greenwich......

    A visit to Greenwich has been on my wish list for years and I've never got round to it. This glorious set reminds me of what I have been missing. I must do it in 2018.
  13. A Winter Morning.

    Yes, have to 'fess up it is an early Christmas present from me to me! Funny how the weird tricks a wide angled lens can do with perspective can either make or ruin a photo ....even more to learn!
  14. A Winter Morning.

    Went a bit crazy and bought a Sigma 10 - 20 mm lens. These are some of the first few shots .
