Re-work Wednesday 13

Clonenagh Church

For this week I have gone back to 2011 and one of my earliest ruin hunts. The church at Clonenagh was one of those surprising sites that you stumble across from time to time. The church which dates back to the 16th century and is located on what was once a large religious complex, founded in 548AD by St. Fintan. The original church which once stood here was destroyed by Viking raiders in 838AD and was again plundered in 937AD by the King of Cashel and the Danes of Waterford.  This was one of my easiest re-works to date, with not major cropping or editing required. A slight level adjustment and mono conversion with just a hint of a vignette was all that I needed here.

And so ends another Re-work, hopefully you are enjoying the series and I will see you all next Wednesday for another image taken from the archives. Please don’t be shy, if anyone has a favorite image which they would like to see next Wednesday, then get in touch or drop me a line, I would love to hear from you :-)

For these and more of my images, why not visit my Website or join me on Facebook or Twitter.

  2. Sometimes you just need that one little tweak to put the final polish on a shot.

    I like your re-works very much. It’s definitely more powerful in mono, however I love the original one too 🙂

    Great job, technically, but I do feel the subject might respond well to emphasizing a brooding quality.
