Photography has been a hobby now for about 15 years and is forever evolving as is my experience and techniques with photoshop. At the moment i love vintage images and have an uncontrollable urge to add textures to everything, addicted? Yes! Thanks for taking the time to view my work.

    I like this image a lot, Adrian. For this country boy, it is very evocative and I reckon it captures the mood and feel of these old formerly majestic houses to a T. Your treatment doesn’t overwhelm but enhances the character oozing from the frame. Great composition and lighting a good foundation.

  • Thanks very much Peter, your comments and thoughts are much appreciated.

    Ah! so that’s what this grand old building was. I have a photo way back in my gallery of this one and I believe its being or has been restored. I love your presentation of this one, its excellent and a definite favourite♥

  • When i was there about a year ago now, it looked as though renovations had just started. Not real sure though if they are in a hurry to finish.
