Out of Focus

Salford 19th June 2017

in response to wordpress photo challenge Focus

Blurred Church

Here’s a Pic of A Greek Chapel, in Crete taken during a recent family holiday.

I played around with the depth of field in this shot – concentrating the focus on the chapel and the bench outside.

Being a chapel – I couldn’t take a shot of the inside.  So i concentrated on the area around it!

Camera used was my Trusty Digital Stills Camera from Sony, additional tweaks to the Depth of field was done using Adobe photoshop elements.

And for those who wanted to see the original pic of the chapel – here it is….

Salford & Manchester 20th May 2017

Historically important – from

English Villages to Irish towns they came

Rallying together to create something special

In a town called Manchester

As the first passenger loco made its way down the line

Great men were lauded for their designs – but in the

A response to the reflecting prompt, taken at Salford Quays recently

Sunset Reflecting on Ontario Basin, Salford Quays, Lancashire UK

Taken by me using my Sony DSC-H300 camera – using sunset mode and continuous frame.

Had a while to wait for the sun to duck below the clouds, but i’m happy with the end result and the colours in the water and sky.

Anyone wondering about the buoys in the water – this is where the watersports centre do their windsurfing, canoeing and line surfing.
