Castle Details by Stuart Ord

June 2020 - Castle Details

About the Image(s)

“Castle details” is a picture of some of the stone detail in a castle. I think it was Scarborough “ I wish my camera had a GPS in it!

I’ve processed it in Affinity to bring out the texture of the stone.

Olympus OM-D-EM1ii, OLYMPUS M.12-100mm F4.0 lens at 100 mm, so effectively 200mm in full frame terms. The exposure was 1/80sec, f5.6, ISO 640, natural light.

I really enjoy seeing all the detail. Very interesting.
When reviewing travel pictures without GPS, I have been very successful identifying locations And subjects using Google lens.
When I have an unidentified location on my monitor, I snap a picture of it and use Google lens. In your case with detail, you would need to use an image that is more of a Standard postcard view of the castle.   Posted: 06/09/2020 14:48:15

Thanks, Jerry, yet another resource on the net that I didn't know about. It looks to me like it only works on phones, or perhaps on Macs, but not on Windows. Is that right?   Posted: 06/09/2020 15:22:58

Yes, I should have said I take the picture of my monitor with my phone and the app is built into my phone. It's an android but may be available for Apple too. Degraded resolution has never prevented the app from providing a correct response. It's great for identifying flowers and other plants too. Sometimes it offers choices because of similarities to other subjects.
Viewers of my vacation presentations seem to appreciate the added detail of knowing all the locations precisely. I add those keywords to my Lightroom catalog.   Posted: 06/09/2020 22:04:42

I find the column to be interesting. The eaten away section of the column in particular catches my attention and causes me t wonder how that happened and is the column strong enough to hold whatever is is holding.   Posted: 06/09/2020 19:58:20

While we don't know much about the image just looking at it, it is interesting and holds my attention. I am thinking you might not need the symmetry top to bottom, and perhaps the composition improves by cropping the top down a bit to put the eroded rocks about 1/3 from the top.   Posted: 06/09/2020 21:41:11

I agree with this suggestion to crop the top a bit.   Posted: 06/09/2020 22:06:49

Great detail and texture in the rock. I agree with a top crop.   Posted: 06/10/2020 11:10:33

Tones and texture are interesting and nice as is discussion. For me I have nothing more to offer because I don't find the subject interesting without some interesting lines and perspective.   Posted: 06/10/2020 11:22:16
