Beamish - My take

Hi All, I hope all you E Forumers are doing well?

Sorry for not posting for ages, what a crazy 6 months I've had!

Just getting round to processing a old of old photos I took before my operation.

I had a trip down south to see my parents and we decided to take my Mam to Beamish Museum (dad was at work), These are a few shots I took and finally got round to having a look at them.

I like dirty industrial stuff (as many of you might know for my past photographs). I've taken a step back from my usual HDR/Tone mapping, seems there is loads of people out there doing what I was doing 4 years ago so I need to try something new!

I hope these work okay, all comments welcome









Glad to see the forum is still doing great and all the old names are still about, great to see a load of new names also. I look forward to commenting on all your photographs.

Have fun
Garrie

Re: Beamish - My take

Welcome back Garrie, and I love your new style of processing - still grungy, but with a mean side to them too. I like them all, but my fav of this bunch would be the two characters with their backs to the camera.

Hope you're recovering well after your op.

Re: Beamish - My take

Now that's a really good way of presenting Beamish in a new light (well, perhaps I should say 'in next to no light'!). They give much more of a flavour of the old engine shed and tracks than a standard shot would have done, and my fav would have to be No.4

Good one.

Regards
Chris

Re: Beamish - My take

I think these are all good shots: Well up to your usual standards! I guess there is a lot of exposure compensation to get the dark look and also a load of desaturation so they come out almost monochrome.

It's a nice look and suits the subject. Well done that man

Re: Beamish - My take

Well, you seem to have discovered another unique style, I think it's great and really suits this type of subject. Looking forward to seeing more like this!

Re: Beamish - My take

A great set through both uploads, the shed wall in your first image has fantastic light across it, almost as if the wall has built up layer's of oil throughout its life.

Like the the others said, the two workers image is a cracking shot, and I like the front elevation view of the steam engine ?

Trust you are better after your operation.


Best wishes.....Alan

You're running out of excuses now Chevvy!! Beamish, Seaham E-Group event (24th June), Newcastle Gateshead Quayside, Sunderland Airshow (20-22 July), loads of fabulous castles and old Halls, Hadrians Wall, desolate Pennine landscapes, fabulous open beaches & coastlines, fresh air, no traffic (well slight exageration!), Westgate Hill motorbike shops (http://www.westgatehill.com/), etc., etc. and, of course, quite a few welcoming E-Groupers! Must be a few flights north from the south west (http://www.skyscanner.net/flights/so...m=1207&rtn=1)? Sorted!

By the way Garrie, on the railway theme, have you been to Tanfield Railway (http://www.tanfield-railway.co.uk/) or Bowes Railway (http://www.bowesrailway.co.uk/), both just a few miles away from Beamish. Well worth a visit when next in the area if not and would really suit this style - Tanfield is always a joy to visit with so much to explore and plenty of steamy atmosphere!

Regards
Chris
