Glenoe Village Co. Antrim.

Here are a few shots of Glenoe Village Co. Antrim. Originally these were all thatched houses [ Not in my time ] Must have looked a lot better at that time. Comments welcome.

Re: Glenoe Village Co. Antrim.

The first two strike me more as record shots, so I'll pass over them - except to say that the lean of the drainpipe, windows and doors in the first is disconcerting.

The third is more to my liking, but I have to ask a matter of curiosity - are you tall, Colin? The window frame exhibits diverging verticals, making me think that you were pointing the camera downwards slightly. On the other hand, this distortion is matched by the visual distortion created by the angle of the front wheel, which makes the circle an oval, so it is in keeping.

On the image itself, the missing pedal catches my eye almost immediately (only one visible) and the confusion of outlines of saddle and window box. The downward angle of the red flowers in the box is good, as echoing the curves (in the line you get by continuing it over the window box and down the other side) of the bicycle wheels.

The only technical point I'd raise (because by and large I don't think them particularly important) is to suggest perhaps raising the contrast slightly to lift the wall and make the wheels stand out slightly more from the cobbles.

Re: Glenoe Village Co. Antrim.

Stephen, Thanks for all your interesting comments on the content. The first is a record shot I can only take what is there, could say the same for a landscape. These are very old houses probably about the best part of 200 years so none of the houses and windows are 100% square.
The third image of the bicycle, I am not tall it is a straight on shot, the window is the shape it is and the bicycle is scrap, chained to the wall, pedal missing and flat tyres, saddle green like the flowers. Again I can only take what is there, But glad you liked it all the same.
These images were taken a few years back and I was through the village again this year and was surprised and saddened to see how run down it had become. The bicycle was still there in even worse condition, no basket or flowers and the houses badly in need of a coat of paint. There was no picture worth taking. But that is life, nothing stays the same, so take it while you can.
Colin.

Re: Glenoe Village Co. Antrim.

I like um all as I looked at them for a time when you first posted. Looking here a problem I always would run into with any camera,,,are the red flowers. they are edge of burned out. If you shoot AWB, your 20D has a manual Kelvin setting, I go for about 5200 to 5700 a little warmer. The 5200 is my fav but would drop it if needed to bring the reds into the histogram. Other wise the bike is great as I see different styles like this with the flowers. I always enjoy the pictures you post Colin so cool off the reds,,for me Reds, Yellows and white can really cause havoc.

Re: Glenoe Village Co. Antrim.

Boofers, Thanks for your comments, glad you like my pictures. As regards the reds I don't think it is the camera, I have always used AWB never changed this as I think the camera is smarter than me when it comes to things like that. If I want to alter a colour I do it in Hue & Saturation in the processing. I gave this image a little saturation to raise the flowers and green doors and windows but only very slightly, gives the picture more punch.
Colin.
