Lingering Look at Windows : reflections

Well, I nearly ducked out of the challenge (over at Dawn’s blog, take a look at other entries here)  again this week (didn’t post last week), but despite everything going on on the home front, decided this wasn’t good enough….in cliché terms, get a grip!

So, I had ANOTHER trawl through my archives, and came up with this one. Shot on Ilford film in, well, a long time ago, when the moon was green and the earth young….and me, a student. Developed by moi, using ID11 (anyone remember?) Digitally captured with a Nikon Coolscan, monkeyed around a bit in Aperture, and here it is. In the 21st Century. And then for version 2, monkeyed around with using Snapseed…And, there’s a tentative link, Dawn has Outside the National Cathedral, I’m kind of outside a church…..

Well, after all that, was it worth it? PLEASE, can I have a comment? Likes are all well and good, and much appreciated, but hey, don’t be shy! I love feedback, and I don’t bite, only comment (kindly) back!


Nightmare Reflections

Nightmare Reflections



  1. The first one looks more natural and the second one obviously digitally edited. And yet the second is my favorite. you suppose that is a sign that we are becoming more drawn to the edited “look” just as we see women with their make up on as more beautiful than without?

    • Hoho…I could definitely look more beautiful with make up, but have always been a ‘soap & water’ girl!! I guess with photos it depends on the effect you are looking for. I generally steer away from too much manipulation, but now an again think ‘what the heck’ and play around with different apps.

  2. It’s really interesting – I usually ‘hate’ the look of digital manipulation, but the second, manipulated image is quite arresting – it’s really a different picture – not of the Civic Centre, but of the church spire. I like that.

    • Thanks for your comment, much appreciated! I usually steer away from this kind of ‘over manipulation’ but occasionally I use it to convey a particular mood, or create a different perspective on something.

Over to you...
