A Photo a Day #223

Disillusioned 


I did a lot of editing work on this in Photoshop. The lighting wasn't quite there in the original photo (due to it coming from behind the statue and me not having the best expertise at balancing my F stop and shutter speed). I like the outcome colours I achieved. The finger didn't look so amusing in real life, but on editing I realised that in this photo it looks like she's giving the finger to the world!

A Photo a Day #220

Pause for Thought


Taken on a walk in Holly Hill Park near Fareham, the landscaping of this woodland dates back to the 1870s and it's a really fun area to explore.

A Warning


The range of primary colours in this shot pleased me and the subject matter is quite interesting. We did heed the warning in case anyone's interested. Although it would make a good photo to have taken an additional shot from the other side.

Rectangles


Another wall shot today! I edited this, mainly focusing on getting some additional contrast and clarity.

A Photo a Day #216

The Power Station


A view of Fawley power station from Lee-on-Solent. The fantastic mono-chromatic blue and white tones give this photo a moody vibe. The Summer evenings here are quite striking here in the South-East of the UK at the moment as it is either very windy, drizzly, or stormy, but still with some contrasting sunlight.

A Photo a Day #215

Fallen Plums


These bright yellow plums contrasted starkly with the pavement. We saw them on an evening stroll a few days ago. I managed to make a focal point of the middle of the shot using my portrait lens.

A Photo a Day #214

Madonna


This was part of a statue from the 1950s-1960s in part of a Roman Catholic chapel at Highcliffe Castle in Dorset. It survived a fire but when the building became derelict the statue fell and was decapitated. The glass eyes are really creepy.
