52 in 2015 Week 49


Interesting one this week. Processing, before and after. This week I had time to capture two photographs.

The first one is a monument on the sea-front at Prestatyn called “Dechrau a Diwedd”. It’s Wels for Beginning and End and depending on your starting point it marks the start or end of the famous Offa’s Dyke walking trail

Corrections to the photograph above, were mainly to boost the colours and take out the ghosted herring gull. I also removed the top of a bench that you can just see sticking up over the wall on the left hand side of the monument.

In the photograph below it was just a case of cropping in closer and enhancing the stained glass which was a bit over exposed. Easy enough to correct in Adobe Lightroom

Saint Melidens Church

That’s it – Mike

    Number two and four are absolute marvels. I remember that you have photographed the incredible sculpture before. And the stained glass is more than beautiful. I don’t understand how the artisans created the stained glass hundreds of years ago. I’m going to Google that and see what I find about the process.

      The best time to photograph that sculpture is at sunset Yvonne. It positively glows. Stained glass is a work of art and there are so many churches in the UK that have it. Some are simple, some are really ornate. Difficult to photograph some times but I like the challenge.

        I’m glad that you have the patience to go out of your way to get so many beautiful photos.
