The Old Eight Bells

by Rob Ferguson
(Nottinghamshire, UK)

Walking around my local town trying out my new camera I noticed the town contained a lot of old an interesting architecture.

I shot this in colour but converted to Black and White using photoshop adding contrast to the sky to give a 'gritty' feel to the image.

This is a lovely photo and converting it to black and white makes it really characterful!

The grittiness is wonderful and the high contrast works really well.

The only thing I can't get out of my mind is that "The Old Eight Bells" seems to be leaning back a little - almost like a gravestone! (sorry!)

I'm guessing Rob took this in Nottingham. If so then it does indeed have its fair share of old buildings.

Although it's been a while since I visited Robin Hood county The Lace Market in particular sticks in my mind, as does the Market Square. Both very photogenic.

Thanks for the submission Rob,

Great architectural photo! The capturing of texture and shade was very well done!
