photoblog image St. James Cemetery

St. James Cemetery


Still playing about with the free textures that I found on Flickr, by NinianLif, thought it would be interesting to try one on this image of St. James Cemetery in Liverpool. This corner is in it's original state without any of the graves being disturbed. they are in a steep cleft in the sandstone rock that formed part of the mount of Zion.

Graveyard as promised and it looks perfect on this capture Well done Les. Creepy looking as the gaveyard is almost underground.
Les Auld: Thanks Aussie, this end of the cemetery was a bit dark and grim deep in a cleft in the sandstone.

Very enclosed graveyard Les. Love the tonessmile
Les Auld: Thanks Tracy, I did try to give it an old stained look.
What a fascinating photograh. The graves look as though they are being swallowed up en masse. I do like the effect, too - it works very well with this photograph. (:o)
Les Auld: Thanks Rosalyn, it was a bit claustrophobic at this end of the cemetery.

As Aussie points out - almost a tomb of the tombs. Strong image Les, looks great too.
Les Auld: Thanks Mike, glad you like it.

This is the perfect image of a grave yard, just great, the atmosphere is creepy, I am impressed by all of your pictures! I agree with the comments so far!!
Les Auld: Mnay thanks Astrid, I do like the idea of it being a bit creepy.
That is a wonderful shot and nicely processed.
e have very boring cemeteries where I live.
Les Auld: Thanks Michael, most of ours are quite boring, only the old ones have any character.

Special atmosphere ... Nice effect of texture ...
Les Auld: Thanks Ann, you could cut the atmosphere with a knife, I didn't stay around too long.

What an interesting looking place - I love graveyards. The effect you have use suits the subject matter well.

Dramatic image Les. I think Van Helsing has just uncovered this picture in the Transylvanian Library!
Les Auld: Now there is a man who likes Garlic with his Stake, thanks Bill.
Not sure why so many people on SC are in funerial mood at present (antidote to festive jollity?). I've a few of my own to post on the subject. But this is an interesting treatment - the ageing and staining make it look like an old print from a long forgotten album.
Les Auld: Places of many images Ian, look forward to seeing your take on them. I was aiming for a tea stained old family picture with this one, almost succeeded I think.
Impressive sight and great PP really !
Les Auld: Thanks Zeb, appreciate the comment.
