  • Creative interpretations: Bolton Priory

    Had a day off today, so visited a local spot, Bolton Priory, (known as Bolton Abbey by everyone local).

    Thought this picture of the 12th Century priory would be a good image for some of you Art guys to work on.

    Not my strength really, would like to see what someone with imagination can do, (and I know you guys have got lots of imagination.)

    ah gary,

    you tempt me strangely. the real challenge here would be to restore this building to its pristine condition. not sure i'm up for that one but it does tempt me

    you know, you could very well be starting a whole new class of restoration here

      Thanks Craig, interesting thought,my own thoughts run to either a line drawing, or replacing the sky with something stormy, then making it greyscale, sort of a Gothic look.

      But for this week I'm gonna be out and about, so I won't have time to put my ideas into practice just yet.

      I've been to Bolton Abbey lots of times since I was a kid, and strangely enough this is the first time I've had a camera with me. Only a 3M point and snap, so resolution's not great, but a really beautiful day, (about 90 degrees hot), and the shot came out better than my severely limited camera skills usually allow.

        First thing that I had in mind was.. undeads and skeletons to match the tombstones.. but then.......*chuckles

        lots of cloning, healbrushing, burlaping, smoothing sharpening.. I really cant recall the steps.

            Hi Naburi,

            Nice one. Love the sense of atmosphere, and choice of colours.

              hi

              Had to have a go at this one, Although i am rather miffed that you are out and about this week " up there "
              I have a brother who lives in Bradford and a friend who lives in Heckmondwike
              and think that part of the country is beautiful ( my personal favourite is up the cow and calf at Ilkley)

                http://www.bbc.co.uk/bradford/west_y...tures_44.shtml

                  Hi Palms,

                  Really love your rendition, has a really tranquil, soft feel.

                  Unfortunately, Bolton Abbey is in North Yorkshire (North Riding to those of us who don't recognise the sub-division of Yorkshire) so would be ineligible for that site. But thanks for the link.

                  I'll be able to browse it tomorrow, as my holidays have been disturbed by having to wait in for some furniture to be delivered (14 weeks waiting for it, and they have to deliver when I'm on holiday and the weather is great. God is a sadist with a sick sense of humour).

                  Got quite a good shot of the Strid at Bolton Abbey as well.

                  Had a totter round York today, wouldn't you know it, I forgot my camera. Some great buildings there to snap as well. Only 20 miles away, and I only ever seem to go there when I'm working

                      Hi Just Checking,

                      You see, it would never have occurred to me to change the colouring so much, (trouble with having a linear mind), but the effect, combined with the change in lighting, is dramatic.

                      Thanks.
