The church shots are nice - they work as treated and should come up well with hdr. But it also illustrates a point I've made before (and still struggle with on every shoot) and that is management of edges. Churches make lovely natural frames and then they go and stick half a lectern there, it really is a 'pain'.

Thanks Nick, and everyone else for kind comments so far. I do indeed hope to keep them coming through the seasons, though I will have to be inventive: It is a very small village - and I am supposed to be working!

The church is nice and light inside, but where you might expect a wood screen on a wide arch dividing the choir from the nave, you get this narrow arch. Moving past the arch resticts the view somewhat. Stepping back introduces the lectern. Perhaps I should hire a 7-14 from Ian and go back there

As to the next instalment? Watch this space, as they say.

Pete

Autumn:

It is at this time of year that humble village dwellers all across the land do battle with the perennial autumn leaf problem

The recreation field: Two football pitches and a cricket pitch.

This posesses an old (post war?) corrugated shed, probably used by the Groundsmen, assuming they can still force their way in through the ivy!

Re: Snaar snaps: Village life

Autumn starts to bite: Maybe it was the cold nights, but the trees have decided to drop their leaves today.

Here is one of the village footpaths: For a hundred meters it is diverted around someone's rather nice house, but the advantage is that you go past this lovely vernacular wood clad barn.

Re: Snaar snaps: Village life

Out and about with my trusty old Tamron 135 this lunchtime.


Here is a sneaky view of the village green and the ornate well cover.



This is a nice front drive eh :-)



and the old yew in the churchyard.



That old tammie may not be as sharp as your latest Zuiko, but its not that bad really..

Hi Pete,

You're certainly going through a purple patch for creativity and I can see you're really enjoying your photography. But do you ever get time to eat lunch?

Re: Snaar snaps: Village life

The seasons continue to turn. Oh dear, dark nights from now on - very dark in rural villages.

Some things don't alter: The daily rhythm of returning the horses to the stables for the night.



Here's another long shot from lunchtime - the short cut to the nearby farm :-)

Well ... if you can design bespoke digital camera circuitry and do the multilayer double sided SMD layouts to go with it, program in 8051 assembler and VHDL for CPLD and FPGA, and have some knowledge of geometric optics .. then we could be interested :-)

Ability with a DSLR optional

Meanwhile, back in the sticks, here is a little rural fantasy I created today (don't ask about the bitey horse).

He he.. I had to traverse a paddock with a horse in it. Thats cool, I am OK with horses at least at a distance. In this case the horse looks a little guilty to my eyes.. So I get to the end of the field and there is one of those wooden kissing gates. But wait, who has been biting chucks out of the top of it then??? Hmm?



I made my excuses and left.

Cracking series Pete.

What galls me about most of these shots is the amount of time the sun seems to be shining down there. Grrrrrr
