Not Knowing where to Start

This was a bit of fun. The figure came from a North Norfolk Railway 1940s event and the kitchen scene behind came from a Bletchley Park display. I like the expression on the face and the title came quite naturally…

Villefranche Impression

I liked the colours and patterns of the houses stacked up on the slopes at Villefranche in the south of France. I used BuzzPro to take some detail out of the buildings (simplify) and a mild pen-and-ink effect to create this painterly impression.

Shutters at Antibes

A typical Provence scene but with a little enhancement to make it a little pen-and-ink like. It looks better as a print than it does on screen.

Loco Motion

This isn’t really a derivative shot at all. It was taken at the 1940s weekend on the Poppy Line (North Norfolk Railway) in 2010 and is an image of the locomotive wheels shot with a slow shutter (and panned) as the train came into the station. I quite like the somewhat surreal effect but it doesn’t please everybody.

Arborial Artform

These trees may be found along the Kingsbridge Estuary close to East Prawle. I like the shapes but the original image was a little flat and uninteresting and so a little Photoshopping and a gentle sepia tone was used to give the image a lift. I’m still debating as to whether it has worked or not…

Merlin Rockets

The boats are Merlin Rockets and are sailing in the Kingsbridge Estuary outside the Yacht Club in Salcombe just before one of the daily races that take place in July. I made this into a pastel image with ink outlines to give a more painterly look.
