Like the grain on this one - it really adds to the atmosphere. Good perspective too. The half open gate really pulls the eye in - it just makes me want to step through to the other side!
tim hitchins: thank you so much Ingrid, it was my first time in the abbey with my camera it will not be my last.smile
I agree, nice gritty feel
tim hitchins: cheers Nigel, hope you have had a good night...........timsmile
Beautiful split or 'mirror' image look here. I realize it is not an effect by one gate being open.
tim hitchins: cheers Kevin, and to think i was going to shut it lol.
For me, this is a Likey! I like very much!
tim hitchins: thank you so much Jose i am so happy you liked it that muchsmile
