This is one of the older parts of Canterbury, the main house is from before AD 1500, some of its history can be found in this link, but there is much more to the building and the area around it
The image as far as this week's theme is concerned is sharp apart from the people who were enjoying a Saturday night out on the town. Although the image looks like there are not many people out, even right in front of me, there were a lot of people moving through the scene as well as a fire engine, but the long exposure (bracketed) removed a lot of the less visible movement. This image is made up of 5 shots all merged together using Lightroom as it gave a better result than photoshop. The image was taken about 30 minutes after sunset
I went with a strobe light to capture some movement, and after a number of attempts with different speeds and settings I got this image. This was set to make ten flashes over a 2 second period while my subject moved his hand slowly upwards.
Although the ISO was set at 100, there was a lot of noise once the image was developed as the image was underexposed due to the power of the flash having to be set low enough to keep the flash going for 10 flashes.
This image is of Ivy Cottage in the small village of Stodmarsh in Kent UK.
The editing was completed by my brother in-law Danny Kemp who is mainly a wedding photographer.
The editing was done using Lightrooom and Silver Efex pro 2.
