About the Image(s)

This image is another taken on my trip to Norfolk last October. It was difficult to get a clear shot of this windpump due to the number of boats that were moored on the drainage channel. The only answer was to include a boat in the image. This building dates back to 1912 but it fell into disrepair and has only recently been restored.
The image was taken on my converted Canon 1300 with a 17mm lens. Settings were: ISO 800, f8, shutter speed 1/1600th sec. I carried out basic adjustments in Lightroom and then converted it to monochrome using Silver Effex Pro. I used content aware in Photshop to increase the canvas at the base of the image and I decided to tone it to give it a sense of antiquity. This added noise to the image so I then used Topaz denoise to remove this. I have removed some minor distractions but found it impossible to remove the wires.

What a beauty Julie. Very delicately printed with the appropriate tone. I don't mind the wires as it is all part of what is there. Love the subtle clouds but thought a little more sky above the ship's mast might help. Great scene as it is but thought by eliminating the hut and path on the right, you have another version. Overall you have a very nice image and am slightly envious. When we went on a boat tour of the broads, we weren't taken anywhere near the windmills although we could see them in the distance!!!   Posted: 05/09/2021 02:03:22
