I blogged the other day a photo of a plane that I named Icarus, I took this on the way to go to Wollaton Park – home to Wollaton Hall made famous in the new Batman film. As I took lots and lots of photos that day I thought I’d pull a few together into a longer than normal post. They’ll be put up in choronological order so I apologise if some of them look weird next to each other.
Just a sign near where we live, I loved the contrast of the white against the really vibrant plants encroaching onto the sign.
Just a bit of graffiti on a bin on the way to work, I like the fact that someone is trying hard to be antisocial and using a lovely pink colour. Amused me.
18mm v 55mm
I really like how you can see the difference between Wide Angle & Telephoto on these images (a cattle grid). With better framing of not being lazy and not cropping it I can imagine that you could make it seem like it’s going on forever with a wide angle lens!
Just a great little spot
I spent a while by this area playing and looking at different settings on my camera and forced perspective. Really useful for me, and such a quaint little place!
A play with filters & cropping, I really like the level of detail you can make out in the foreground of this image and the small amount of blur in the background to give a decent sense of distance.
This is round the back of Batmans house, I used it as a tester of the Natural vs Vivid settings on the camera – I really like the vivid image (top).
Little Red Tree
All the greenery around and this tree stuck out with it’s bright red autumnal leaves – stunning!
A before and after of a rather unlucky bit of fence, left before and right after.
Nook by the lake
A little bit of scrambling got me to this little nook where I had a great view of the lake with some nice overhanging trees. I used the flash here and am really impressed as it still looks quite natural.
One final shot of the hall as I was leaving through a gap in the greenery.
So that was my day – any comments or critique feel free to post below, I’d love to get some feedback.
