A walk along Semer Water to Stalling Busk past the Disused Chapel



  1. Is it just me or is the sky a different hue to the foreground? It seems more blue, whereas the latter seems more pure b/w. I presume the chapel you mention is not in this shot as that is a barn is it not? Anyway, it is a fine landscape and I like the progression of barns in the middle distance.

    • This isn’t a mono, it is 90% mono and 10% original colours. So the blue you can see in the sky is the original blue and the foreground has a hint of brown which was the dominant shade in the original colour image. The mix is done using opacity between the original layer and the B&W layer. I didn’t like the feel of the 100% B&W and preferred the subtle tones that the change in opacity produced.
      The club has purchased a 16:10 format projector and as a club we need to decide if we will exploit the 1920*1200 or use a 4:3 at 1600*1200, so I’ve played during this holiday with the 16:10 format image. As I paid a lot of money for my pixels I don’t like throwing them away so I experimented with a double take to widen the view and then stitched them together. So I started to look for images that fitted in the wider format. It works for landscapes not sure about street photography! :-)

      • PS You are correct the Chapel is a few hundred metres further on and wasn’t easy for me to find a decent picture. There may be something worthwhile as I’ve only done a quick review of the images I took.

  2. Stan has called me the “queen of subtlety” in the past, and if that is true, with your 10% color here you can take the crown as king. And for John to notice means he must score very high on the color vision scale! It is a fine landscape. That tree has a lot of character.

  3. Again a nice picture. The ‘duotone’ treatment adds interest and the relatively dark sky retaining the original hue is an interesting contrast.
