photoblog image Madonna

Madonna

I took this in  Layton Cemetery in the dead centre of Blackpool...yes, the old jokes are the best!!

I've done it to death in CS2, yet I think it's given the shot a rather ethereal & mystical feel. Strictly speaking, it's not 'photographic' as such but PP can result in some artistic qualities that I'm happy with.

There's a school of thought that argues why spend all that money on cameras & lenses if you're going to render a shot in such a way: who cares if it floats your boat..?

Works for me Dave. smile
Dave Carrington: Thanks for the comment, Chris.
I really like the hi-key effect on this image. Fascinating places grave yards. I have a collection of pics from the same location. I am putting together a collection of funereal symbolism, very interesting, well I think so! Have you seen the cricketers grave at Layton?
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Alistair. I agree with your comments on cameras, blogging, etc.
I'm also curious to see this 'cricketers grave'. I spent a while mooching around Layton cemetery but must have missed that one!
Meant to say, the camera is no different to a paint brush, it is just a tool. Its up to you how you use it to obtain the image you want. Don't apologies. One of the benefits of photoblogging you can do just what the hell you want.

Dave, why apologise, me, I love what you have done here to death, you know what I say, the "old school" can stay old school, me I choose to be one of those guys who is new school but can go old school when the occasion requires me to.

I am absolutely loving the work here, this for me is a work of art, you have to know what you are doing, to be able to get an end result like this, so to those who think, nnaaaa too much CS2, well CS2 I believe was made for a reason wasn't it?

Dave Carrington: Thanks for taking your time to look & comment, Suby. I agree entirely with your sentiments: well said!
definitely a work of art. It would be interetsting to see what it looled like before death by CS2
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Christophe. Maybe I will post the original...
