This is an image of corner of the now ruined Nave at the Abbaye de Beauport, Paimpol, Cotes d’Armor, Brittany, France to which I have added textures and layer adjustments.

Fuji Finepix S9500, 3 shots +2,0,-2 EV’s, ISO100, f11. Tonemapped using Details Enhancer in Photomatix 3.2.6 to produce an HDR image, post processing in CS4

The Abbey was founded in 1202 and continued in use until 1790 when it closed. It has since been recognised as ‘monument historique’ and now is a major tourist attraction in Brittany.

    Oh this is gorgeous! So sad that these places fall into ruin….. though you’ve proven that ruins have their own special kind of beauty.

  • Thank you so much Rosemary for your lovely comment. You are right it is sad but I have to say that overall the French are brilliant at keeping and restoring their heritage. A very proud nation! Best regards.
