Subject: [Leica] [img] Mark's PAW Week 32. Bible, Inglesham church

Photographically, last week was a huge success.  I had several days 
where I was able to get out and about and take pictures.  For a change, 
I managed get quite a few keepers, so will be busy processing images 
when time and inclination allow...

Last Monday I visited St John The Baptist Church in the village of 
Inglesham.  The church is no longer used for worship but is still 
consecrated.  I spent a very peaceful, happy three hours there looking 
for things to photograph.

To this week's PAW.  It was taken with an M8 and 50mm Summicron lens. 
Exposure was 1/2 sec and I used a tripod - which I know is anathema to 
many!  I metered the scene with a hand-held meter, taking a incident 
reading.  It's post-processed in Photoshop CS2, and I've used the Alien 
Skin  plugin to replicate HP5 plus and a war/selenium tone effect. Other 
  than a slight modification to curves and contrast, it's pretty much as-is.

I hope you like it.

For me, it just sums up the solitude and tranquility I felt when I 
visited this place.  I will be returning...

All the best
