Saltaire winter scene

(This picture is definitely better viewed large.)

Although I like to get the best possible photograph in camera, I still enjoy seeing what I can do on the computer. There's photography and then there's Photoshop - almost like two separate hobbbies. In this case I thought a bit of artistic treatment (on what was originally rather a dull photo) might be fun. The result is not a very natural picture but I quite like it nevertheless. It would be improved with a bit more foreground interest, but there was nothing around. The horse was more interested in the hay over the far side of the field than in providing me with some subject matter.

It's taken from the bridge over the railway line, looking east towards Saltaire which can be seen on the right. The snow-covered canal winds its way through the middle and, to the left of that, you can see the white cricket pavilion belonging to Salts Sports Club. The village in the background is Baildon.


  1. Nothing wrong with a bit of photoshopping or post processing in moderation.

  2. Like Gerald, processing is fine, but I don't like the way some people over-use the filters and effects.

    Sharp frost here this morning.

  3. What an amazing shot !! This is so beautiful !! Would love to see with my own eyes.

  4. Snow scenes look wonderful in the sunshine! I like the frozen canal.
