photoblog image Hanbury Hall

Hanbury Hall

This is the closest National Trust property to us. This is actually a picture I took last year on my little 3 megapixel compact.

That's a wild, alien skyscape. I like the way the processing has sharpened and clarified features of the architecture.
Bill Phillips: I don't know why but when I did this the house seemed to pop out into an almost 3D effect.

You are a photographic artist, Sir Phillips!
Bill Phillips: You are too kind my Lady Ginniesmile
The sky scares me but the rest is enhanced ok. I'd love to see it in regular colour.
Bill Phillips: Funnily enough I assumed that I must have posted a picture of Hanbury Hall already...but I haven't. I will post a proper one later on in the year. It is a lovely house with very nice gardens.

I have been there and it looks just like this.
Bill Phillips: It will be better when they have finished refurbishing the roof.
That is actually a not bad effort Bill - especially if you shot it on such an underpowered camera. Perhaps the sky is a trifle overcooked?
Bill Phillips: Actually Chris about the first 100 pictures I posted were shot on this camera. You can just about print up to A4 and, of course, a computer screen resolution is so low it doesn't really matter what you use. I rather liked the sky! Oh well, perhaps you are righttongue
Yikes talking of science fiction! Interesting result though.
Bill Phillips: I could be philosophical and say that it is a statement about global warming and pollution. It wouldn't be true though
This is very gothic, but maybe slightly too organised to be threatening.
Bill Phillips: How about cosy threateningtongue??

I like this photo, though I am also not sure of the sky. The whole picture has a metallic look about it, a bit like those silver foil seaside pictures.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Sheila. Opinion is divided about the sky!
Ha! ... crazy sky bill.
The sky is AWFUL the house is GOOD
So I suppose I have to sum the presentation up by saying it's AWFULLY GOOD.

Bill Phillips: LOL! I like the sky...but I like it when opinion is divided!
Is the end of the world not far away? I love the sky Bill!
Bill Phillips: Arma geddon outa here! Hooray a vote for the sky. Merci!

I don't know what to say Bill - I go away for a few days and you're back to your infernal twiddling! Nice garden.
Ingrid
Bill Phillips: While the cat's awaysmile Hanbury has a beautiful garden and I will post an un twiddled one some time. Next week I am planning to get into seasonal mood with untwiddled flowers!
Une superbe photo avec un ciel étonnant, bravo !
Bill Phillips: Merci. Je suis heureux comme vous le ciel!
The house and gardens are great Bill. The sky is great Bill. Know what that means, yes a great shot.
Bill Phillips: Thanks very much Brian. I seem to have divided people over the sky!
Very interesting processing. It certainly jumped beyond being the average holiday snap.
I love it. You brought out some interesting colours.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Michael. I was playing around with some plug ins and rather like this effect.
You have made a treatment spectacular!
Bill Phillips: Thank you Jose Angel
Hi Bill, there's a dreamlike quality to this image - and I find it slightly disturbing! Just my type of image!! Mike
