Through a Window by Steven Wharram, LRPS

June 2020 - Through a Window

About the Image(s)

This was taken on a beach that is quite remote, does not have anything going on and is really abandoned boats and derelict buildings. The reason for this is that there is a nuclear power station very close. So this area is now just a nature reserve for all intents and purposes.

What I did:
As usual, I've kept any manipulation to a minimum
A slight crop, otherwise SOOC
Resized for this Group

This made me laugh and well found, and thank you as I had hard period since mid April will not able to go out much along with the death of my father.

Thank you once again for making me laugh.   Posted: 06/11/2020 19:33:02

You find the most interesting images, Steven. I love the worn and grungy look of the whole, as well as the graphic in the window.   Posted: 06/12/2020 15:51:20

Barbara, you partly want buildings like this left as they were but the use of them for art does at least extend their use and interest to others, like myself.   Posted: 06/18/2020 05:56:24

I really like the angle that you shot this with the window perspective helping draw your eyes to the crazy cat.   Posted: 06/12/2020 16:48:34

Hi Steven, Great image, the grungy dilapidated frame and the angle that you have taken the shot holds your focus on the image within, lovely colours and makes you wonder what it was previously.   Posted: 06/20/2020 06:33:13

hi steve,

nice catch of an interesting scene. the old window is almost bypassed as I go in to see the colorful cat-like figure. then you realize that it's also worn and ragged bringing me back out to see the window again. I like the angle it was taken at. The only recommendation would be to crop out more of the white wood on the right hand side as I keep seeing that large space as a distraction.
