Not for the purist record photo. But location and scale more obvious.March 3, 2018 at 9:02 am #15934
Thanks for starting off this month’s theme Ken. I think this is the sort of picture the History Society would be looking for as it shows the old features of the buildings. I like the contrast of the later tower block behind and older building in the foreground.March 5, 2018 at 4:25 pm #15949

Thanks for posting these 6 images giving us plenty to discuss Wallace. Starting with the first one of the church exterior taken on a dull day. I’ve always found photographing churches a bit of a challenge as they’re so big and you can’t get far enough away to get the perspective correct. So unless you have an expensive tilt-shift lens, you’ve got to use a wide angle lens which is going to give some distortion. This might upset the purists but in this photo I think the distortion is minor and acceptable for the subject.
Church interiors are often dull and high ideally requiring a tripod and wide angle lens. I like the aisle leading in and the even light shows all the detail. The second interior is very dark, but it shows the window well. I think I would have concentrated more on the window, but perhaps you wanted to show its environment.
The colourful houses in Boreno are a great subject. I think I like the last one best because I feel it’s complete. It shows it’s environment with the canal and boat and has some space around it. I feel the first one is a bit too close and in the second one the balance isn’t as good for me. I think it’s the house on the right that is incomplete.

My choice of the colorful buildings in Boreno was to show the importance of colour in the overall Architestural landscape and how colour defines a place. Nowhere more so than in Boreno, or is colour unimportant in actual Architecture?

I think colour is as important in architecture photographs as it is in all other colour photographs. Colour and composition dictate the photograph.March 9, 2018 at 7:09 pm #15989
Here’s few wacky wide angle shot of Crewe. Not everyone’s taste and not a serious record of the buildings, but a bit of fun.March 12, 2018 at 7:52 am #15990
