Ampney Crucis

Small Gloucestershire village, surprisingly this shot doesn't show the church.



E-PL1 - 11-22.

It must be spring.

Re: Ampney Crucis

A very attractive, very English scene and very well photographed. I presume the church comes later?

Thanks John.

Might have to redo the exterior shots of the church, it was just a bit too sheltered from the South and South West so I think I've pushed the exposure too far trying to save the highlights.

It's a perfectly inoffensive Road Sign, and anyway that little road leads to the church of Holy Rood.

North West Suffolk, well I was born and grew up within the stench of the Sugar Beet factory at Bury St Edmunds so I know the area quite well. Haven't been back for a few years, but maybe one day, till then I'll look forward to you capturing a few shots of the local churches.

Thanks all

Nick

Re: Ampney Crucis

Great shot Nick.Am I correct in assuming that Holy Rood has the same meaning as our Holyrood as in Holy Cross?

Well my signature currently says - this way to the Columbarium, which of course is dove-cote, except it isn't. Though of course the Romans kept cremated ashes in the dove-cote, but Christians apparently didn't (but called it a columbarium). Must admit I'm puzzled, but I blame historians and antiquarians for showing off with unnecessary latin.

Actually the electricity consumption of my PC could well be based on 'cremating' deleted photos.

But Yes, Rood = Cross and there is a standing cross in the churchyard with fine carved faces.

Re: Ampney Crucis

A suffolk lad at heart eh Nick, can't be bad....have driven past the sugar beet factory so many times i've lost count....and the smell is something you can't forget.

I'll try and get some church shots over the coming weeks as I have to return to the area i mentioned during the next month. Also noticed a very unusual use of a few telephone boxes in a few of the small villages!! (Small book exchanges). This area stretches west away from Halesworth.

Cheers

Peter

It's premature to comment as you didn't post it but if you are working with LF jpegs and the highlights are ok, then PS shadow / highlight tool selectively fills the shadows.

They are just chronically badly exposed photos - my fault I know the church and how it's lit, and with grey and white cloud plus a screen of trees to the south they were never going to work as single exposures. I should have shot HDR - or waited for another day.

Normally I select my subjects better - if you don't know a subject Flickr is often a good reconnaisance resource.

What a delightful image Nick, just the sort of think that grabs my attention when out and about.
