Lindisfarne re-worked

Here is a second version of my Lindisfarne castle image following a suggestion from Andy Beel. It does focus more strongly on the castle. I do like the original but I can see how the foreground detail could dominate the composition more than intended.

  1. I like them both, I think I prefer the original (by a whisker). But I am a sucker for black and white pictures with lots of detail. I think need to add Lindisfarne to my list of places to see.

    • Thanks for your comment. I am a little bit torn between the two myself, I think they both have their merits. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne is a great place to visit, lots of possibilities for photography.

    • Thanks Andy. I’m glad I re-visited this image. I do seem to have fallen between two stools. On the day, I took a few shots from this area just of the rocks which had a band of bright orange lichen (I think that’s what it was) and the shapes and textures were good too. That must have still been in my thinking when I took the shot of the castle.

  2. Hi Frank this is an improvement and a slightly different picture with a different feel and meaning to the original.

    Why is it that its easy to see changes required in the pictures of others but not our own? Something I certainly find that applies to me.


    • Thanks Andy.

      I’m not sure why it’s easier for others to see possible improvements but I’m really glad they do! Constructive comments are always welcome 🙂
