We asked to see your ‘Tranquil’ images for last week’s #ThursdayTheme . It’s been lovely looking through your photographs, they certainly evoke a feeling of peace and harmony. Enjoy!
Our #FridayFoto this week is this absolutely stunningly tranquil image by Char Ronster. It was chosen by our resident expert and friend, Michael Carver.
Here’s what Michael had to say about Char’s image:
“It’s Bodiam Castle in East Sussex and I’ve seen countless photographs of it, it’s a popular spot for photographers and you can see why. Although I’ve seen a lot of shots of this castle, I haven’t seen many as good as this, ok….I haven’t seen ANY as good as this.
Look at it!
The colours, the reflections, the misty atmosphere, the composition. The conditions looked perfect and you have certainly exploited them to get the most of out your shot Char. It’s a beautifully balanced exposure with lots of details in the shadows and great colours. It’s timeless too – this shot could of been taken yesterday or hundreds or years ago (although I doubt cameras would be sophisticated enough to take shots like this hundreds of years ago – “Ye Olde Nikons” just weren’t up to it lol).
Anyway, it’s an amazing shot and one any photographer would be proud of. That’s the thing with popular spots, even though other photographers have been and had a crack, it’s always worth going to get your own take on a location, you just never know what the conditions will be like and if you are lucky you’ll come home with something of this quality.”
Thanks so much to all of you who shared an image with us this week! They are fabulous!
