Bits and doings 5

Bit of a lamp theme developing here I think! This isn't as sharp as I would like but the National Trust doesn't allow flash and I don't think they would appreciate a tripod! so I tend to accept a bit of softness in exchange for some atmosphere. Not to everyone's taste but what the hell. you ain't paying to see them Cool

It wouldn't have worked well in flash Bill, would have looked like a photo from an auction magazine. This way you have mood and atmosphere. Works well.
Bill Phillips: I don't like flash and certainly not for something like this.
best so far
Bill Phillips: Thank you Chantal.

lovely b&w nicely done
Bill Phillips: I had to clone out a picture further up the wall as it spoilt the picture!

I don't think the lack of sharpness matters in this case. Rather a hideous lamp base though!
Bill Phillips: Actually the lamp base is a lovely shade of blue as is the bowl. If you pop to Baddesley Clinton you can judge it in the flesh Ingrid smile

Thank you for your illuminating notes for the delightful image. NT have only just started to allow photography but tripods would be too much for them.
Bill Phillips: and fair enough really as you can imagine some giant all singing tripod taking up half the room while some creative genius takes a snapshot!

Soon Lamp Friday will have an enormous following.
Bill Phillips: Plant pot Friday never really caught on
Table lamps always give a good atmosphere as depicted here Bill.
Bill Phillips: They are also a handy source of light in a dimly lit National trust room Janet
Suits my taste, Bill!
Bill Phillips: Jolly good Tom, cos it suits mine too grin
Nice little shot Bill. I always find it a nuisance that in shots like this, flash or no flash, one ends up with a burnt out highlight on a shiny background.
Bill Phillips: Well you have to live with some things Brian. I don't mind if it doesn't detract too much. I am not trying for a brochure picture.
