photoblog image The Walker on William Brown Street

The Walker on William Brown Street


 It is good to be back to be able to continue my walk up William Brown Street in Liverpool. Just after the Picton Reading Room is the Walker Art Gallery, the last of the Victorian Buildings celebrating the Arts and Learning, the other two being the Museum and the Picton.

Built in 1873 it was enlarged in 1882 by Cornelius Sherlock and then again in 1931 by Sir Arnold Thornley. It now houses a fine collection of paintings and statues, forming one of the great art colelctions of the country.

In the middle distance may also be seen the County Sessions House.

What a gorgeous photo, Les. This is superb, worthy of being framed and hung on the wall.
Les Auld: Thanks Kay, I may do that.
awesome picture!
is this an HDR?
Les Auld: Yes it is Tomaz, five images generated from a single RAW file and then processed in Photomatix with post processing in Photoshop. Thanks for the comment.

Great picture again.

Only one person to be seen, so I gather you were verrrry early.
Les Auld: Late afternoon Louis, and I thought he had walked out of the picture. Thanks for the comment.
Top draw in all aspects Les. richard
Les Auld: Thanks Richard, appreciate the comment.
Excellent shot Les. The victorians knew how to build civic!!
Les Auld: So much civic pride Bill, thanks for the comment.
Another great shot Les, I like this effect you are giving these latest images, is it that Topaz plug-in
Les Auld: Topaz and HDR processing Brian, thanks for the comment.
Excellent shot Les- nicely composed and processed. HDR can look artificial but your effect here is very complementary to the scene. Top stuff!
Les Auld: Thanks David, I do try to make the HDR processing a touch subdued, does not always work though. Thanks for the comment.
