Wollaton Park in evening sun

Here's a few from a walk in Wollaton Park on Sunday evening. Trying to bring out the effects of the low sun and harsh shadows.

What great late-afternoon and autumnal tones

I get a sense of space and distance in the 1st three, they're lovely compositions.

Thanks Rosemary, yes it is quite a large open deer park. Didn't have time to explore properly but will definitely go back for a look round the house especially as it's free.

Re: Wollaton Park in evening sun

Great shots Phil, some lovely colours and you have captured the late afternoon/low sunlight perfectly. The shot of the hall is super.
It's a long while since I've been there, in fact the last time was on the golf course where we were delayed for 20 mins on one hole waiting for a herd of deer to move off the fairway!

Re: Wollaton Park in evening sun

Nice set, Phill, you've handled tricky lighting with flying colours for some superb exposures and great atmosphere.

Nice set Phil

That house must be good around sunrise if you can get the sun behind it.

Lovely autumn warm colour. I like the last one Phil, looks like a tricky one to get right.

Re: Wollaton Park in evening sun

Thanks everyone your comments have definitely made my day.

Iain, deer are probably a golfing hazard here as they were all over the golf course on Sunday. Luckily I'm no golfer

Hec, I was quite surprised no2 worked out that well to be honest. This little camera does seem to have a habit of pulling off some surprising shots when I'm not expecting it.

Colin, Mr Man's for tea after a stroll in the park sounds like a great idea for an East Midlands meet up.

Ian, yes you guessed I'm really enjoying trying out the E-M1. Can't wait to get the adaptor though to try my 4/3 lenses. The 12-50 is OK but I just get the feeling there's something missing. Should have gone for the 12-40 ££ouch.

Paul & John the setting sun was really quite atmospheric that day although I did wonder if I'd made the shadows too dark and also overdone it by shooting in vivid mode. Basically I forgot to change the setting and still on jpgs haven't ventured to raw yet.

Alf, that's a good idea definitely worth a try to get the sun behind it as there are lots of through windows it could shine through.

Conor, well my secret is I just used the sunset scene mode so most of the credit goes to the Olympus engineers really.

OM, I agree it does show off the open space quite well.
