photoblog image The Shipperies

The Shipperies


The Shipperies public house was constructed a year or so before the Fire Station next door to it, but in a very different Victorian style. The pub was named after the International Exhibition of Navigation, Travelling, Commerce and Manufacture Exhibition - locally known as the Shipperies Exhibiton - held in Liverpool in 1886 at the nearby Exhibition Hall in Edge Lane, overlooking Wavertree Park.

Once again, great processing Les. l really like the way you age these shots
Les Auld: Thanks Zed, glad you like the aging effect, I think it does fit the subject here.
Really nice work with the processing. Would you mind sharing how you do that?
Les Auld: Thanks for the comment. It is all done in Photoshop using one or more texture images layered with the original and the using blending modes and layer opacity to get the effect required.

A very good aged look to this one. Do you use some special software or is this done in Photoshop? I am intrigued.

Les Auld: All in Photoshop Ingrid, I did use the Topaz Adjust Olug-in to create an HDR like image and then added texture layers to distress it and then used a B&W adjustment ayer at a low opacity to drain the colour out of it.
Love the Ye Oldie Look about it Les. Good one.
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, Ye olde Look to go with Ye Olde Pub.
There certainly are still some old and impressive buildings in Liverpool Les, another great image.
Les Auld: And not all of them are in the city centre, this is in the Victorian overspill area, thanks for the comment Brian.

I fine-looking capture, Les, and a lovely presentation. Looks like an image from an old guide book.
Les Auld: The sort of effect I was aiming for Alan, thanks for the comment.
