Lingering Look at Windows

Over at The Day After, Dawn is into Week 43 of her Lingering Look at Windows challenge…
I missed posting last week, for a variety of reasons, but I’m back with some windows that I saw today…when on a mission to take some autumn colour.

Images of some windows in an atmospheric Boathouse, at a garden I was visiting. Windows from the outside and looking out from within…My favourite image is the Abstract one, which is a reflection of the scene behind me, with the smaller image of the view through the entrance door (seen through the same window) appearing superimposed….I don’t know if it works , do let me know what you think!

  1. Is this Winkworth Arboretum Sue? That boathouse looks familiar. The abstract is very interesting in a curious way – I’m still not sure what I am seeing there.

  2. What an unusual point of view you have captured with the last window Sue. It makes me study it closely. I like it

    • Thanks, Pommepal… When I saw it, I knew I had to take the photo, despite the fact that the window wasn’t sparkling clean so the reflection wasn’t sharp. It just looks so strange, as if I have superimposed the smaller image onto the main one, which I haven’t… 🙂

  3. great pictures, Sue! love the “looking out over the water” photo. so serene!

  4. Lovely pictures. I love windows, from either side.

    The last shot is intriguing. I think it really works but would have preferred it if your signature/watermark was smaller and placed in the bottom right hand corner. I think it detracts from the impact of the image itself. The image has an interesting dreamlike quality and the placement of the superimposed shapes reminds me of traditional Japanese ink brush painting. It would be fascinating to see a series of similar photos.

    • Point taken re the Watermark…. And the shapes aren’t superimposed, but as seen through/reflected in the window…. But it did make me think about having a go at superimposing some images. Glad you thought there was a dreamlike quality. Onwards with the creativity! 🙂

  6. It’s an interesting image, but I find it a bit confusing. I prefer the single images in this case.

  7. Oh, you clever person, Sue! I admired “looking out over the water” and then was puzzling about what processing you’d done in your last shot. Thank goodness for people who ask intelligent questions in the comments 🙂

    • Hi Jo! Thanks for the comment…. I don’t think it’s clever me, just being at that place just at the moment the reflection and the straight ahead view came together!! Carpe Diem! I’m a great one for Carpering the old Diem, and it promises to be a bright day today so am trying to get myself going to get up and out in the sunshine early-ish!

  8. I thought the main view in the last shot was the one outside!! Silly of me of course, but it is quite misleading. But lovely as well, as are all your other shots. Good job Sue.

  9. I had no problem with the watermark, btw. I wish we didn’t have to use them but we do. And we can’t put them where they are easily cropped.
