Please don’t be shocked,this week I had an irresistible urge to do something completely different! And so after 40 weeks of re-works, this is the first full colour image I have done, and probably the first ruin image that was not in Monochrome in over a year. What you are looking at is a shot of the Medieval Abbey at Bective in Co. Meath. It was built for the Cistercian order back in 1147AD and its still in quite good condition. Working from the Raw file I adjusted the structure and added a digital ND filter to bring out the detail in the sky.
Dont fear I have no intention of going back to shooting these the many ruins I visit each year in colour, but I think that its important to play around with something different every once in a while. If anyone has a favourite image which they would like to see featured in the future then get in touch or drop me a line, I would love to hear from you,
