Neodigital Art and photography
We want the Black Country to be represented in a 2015 Waterways calendar and so I’ve taken some canal pictures. The light wasn’t good when I took this one and despite the editing and fancy frame. I don’t think it’s interesting enough for a calendar. The tree silhouette against the sky is artistic though.
This is more artistic, but I think I can do more with a shot taken in better light with a lower ISO setting.
These are quite good shots but for a calendar I would like to go back and take better shots. Low light tends to produce noise, but fewer shadows. In winter the sun is also lower in the sky.
I like this shot. It shows the abandoned railway under the new road. The canal is a little farther on and the river is there too but running through a culvert. The road is elevated and I think the light rail system will be extended to use the path of the old railway and go through here.
This is the Metro, a modern light rail system. This shot is quite good and it was quite late at night. It’s better than a shot taken earlier the next day when there was a sunset. The plan is to run a new line from this station that follows the old tracks to extend the system to other towns. This is a better idea than building new roads, but we need cheaper fares, it’s quite expensive.
