I’m looking for good images now that are more artistic or images that I can do something in editing. The above image was taken with a more expensive Nikon DSLR. The image below with my Fuji bridge camera. Which is better and more artistic? I like the one below more.
Darlaston is a local town with quite a few Victorian buildings, so we wandered around there a couple of years ago taking a few photos. These pictures can be edited and the ‘modern’ things taken out to give the picture a real Victorian look.
This is a photo that Simon James took on the Norfolk Broads (England) some time ago. I’ve edited it and the main thing was to add contrast. Simon often zooms in too close to the subject, but he has it about right with this photo. (more…)
This picture was a bit boring, but it looks interesting now I’m edited it. It was simple a fence outside a factory. It was taken in bad light too:

The first picture today was taken by Simon James and I tried to make the shadows more visible; it has made the picture more interesting and artistic. This was taken at Littlehampton and appears to be the river. The railing also gives the picture a lot of depth and the river going away into the distance adds to that. (more…)
