Sarehole Mill

Been out and about a little today and took these at Sarehole mill which is a local musuem/water mill, there has been a mill on the site since 1542 and was rebuilt in 1768. Also it is where J.R. Tolkien spent his childhood and got the inspiration for his books ( maybe Byro spent some of his childhood here as well ?)

the first is the outside, the second a steam engine that was used for a while. the third being part of the mill pond, and lastly the still working water wheel

can they be artifyed ? we shall see have some fun we did going there

Re: Sarehole Mill

Hey Palms! These are really terrific! The steam engine was especially enticing to me.

If I can remember..., I did some saturation and contrast adjustments to the duplicated layer, created another layer and used the history brush, created another layer and did a texture and one more layer to add the yellowish edges. Played with opacity on all of the different layers. This was fun! I think I'm starting to understand the history brush a little bit; now to learn about the different brushes.

Re: Sarehole Mill

Palms. Love your shots. Especially this one.

Touch up and color corrections. Line art technique then created a pattern stamp source for the finished version. Went back in with the pencil tool on the final version and beefed up some of the structural lines.

Ran pic quickly through high contrast transformation in picture window pro and played with the sliders. Thought it was kind of nice.

Re: Sarehole Mill

Palms,

I like it. I like the impressionistic look.

I'm just learning my editing software so am not as adept as so many other but it's fun learning and I'm glad I found this website.

Nice to see the mill looking so good. In "my time", as I remember, the restoration wasn't so advanced (but that was a long time ago).

Thanks, palms. Shame it's late now, tomorrow I'll just have to have a shot at one of these!

Re: Sarehole Mill

These are super photos, Palms. I liked the exterior one and did a heavy inked water color. I added clouds for dramatic appeal and to balance the emboldened color saturation.

Re: Sarehole Mill

Jim thank you stick around and you will learn more ( well that and practice )

Ro the mill is in good repair and working well still, the parks surrounding it havent faired so well and need a clean up, hopefuly they will do that soon, and the good news is it is still free to visit ( not much of that around)

Lonk i really like the heavy ink and the sky is great, will need to take you with us next time we go out, never seem to get blue skies
