Low Hall Park
 Low Hall Park   by Andrew Fishburn  (Canon EOS 5D 17-40mm Lens.)
Low Hall Park, Platt Bridge looking towards Sammy's Flood. I woke early and saw the splendid frost through the window, and had to march out with the camera!

Lovely storybook photo.

Great shot, has this some HDR treatment?


Comment by broady on 21st December 2012 at 00:05
I don't profess to be an expert but that is a brilliant picture. Would make a nice Christmas card.


Comment by Janice on 21st December 2012 at 00:07
You're a brave lad Andrew. Brrr - but if you want the shot you have to do it. This was worth getting up and cold for. Absolutely beautiful.

A really good picture of a classic mid-winter scene. So good it makes me want to print and frame it.

Very nICEly done! :-)


Comment by Harry C on 21st December 2012 at 08:11
Well worth rising early for this shot, brilliant. H.


Comment by Andrew Fishburn on 21st December 2012 at 08:18
Hi all, and thanks for the nice comments :-)
Lizzie, always happy to share any pic - feel free to add to your collection.
It has had a little HDR treatment to bring out the frost on the grass. I did send the HDR and the 'normal' shot to Brian and asked him to pic his fav! My opinion of HDR is that it should be used when it adds something to the shot - here the path leading the eye into the sunrise is the focus of the image and did work well with the normal shot, but the HDR gave more in the shadows! If I don't get chance before next week I wanted to wish you all a wonderful Christmas and smashing New Year!


Comment by Lizzie down under on 21st December 2012 at 09:16
Thankyou Andrew!! Just saved a copy. A Merry Christmas to you and yours... Cheers!!!


Comment by Rev David Long on 21st December 2012 at 09:29
Great pic, Andrew - and Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to you and yours.
I'm sure you've checked the metadata for this pic and it IS a sunrise, not a sunset? ;-))


Comment by Al.C. on 21st December 2012 at 09:40

Comment by Mac on 21st December 2012 at 10:04

I'm with Maggie over this lovely picture.I don't know where itis either. Wasn't there a colliery called Low Hall somewhere in Platbridge a long time ago?


Comment by mac on 21st December 2012 at 16:16
What a glorious photo, I can feel the atmosphere on it. Beautiful on the eye, thank you.


Comment by Neil Rigby on 21st December 2012 at 16:27
Beautiful and Stunning.


Comment by Ellen on 21st December 2012 at 17:39
Too late,really, but I must say that I have been loving all the "pfunny" comments that have been made in the last couple of days; too bad that I'm having a very long "senior moment" and can't think of any myself!!!


Comment by Steve on 21st December 2012 at 19:52
Maggie as an old Platt Bridger you must surely remember Sammys Flood? It is now a Nature Reserve,the entrance is on Liverpool Rd opposite Crompton St. By the way Andrew excellent photograph!


Comment by Roger on 21st December 2012 at 22:30
Cracking Photo Andrew you could probably have sold it


Comment by Brian from Massachusetts on 22nd December 2012 at 00:40
Stunning!!!!!!!!


Comment by Dave Thomas on 22nd December 2012 at 11:31
HDR. High Dynamic Range Photos it's a technique if there's a wide range of light conditions in the shot ie; bright sunlight and deep shadow put simply you expose for both take several shots of the same subject with different exposure values and digitally combine them for the best picture.That is how i understand it but i'm sure Dave Oy could describe it better.


Comment by Dave Thomas on 22nd December 2012 at 11:35
Forgot to say great photo Andrew,really brings out the cold frosty morning feeling.


Comment by sanibel fred on 22nd December 2012 at 19:31
