This is called Priory Park (SX50HS)
1

The forecast said that it was going to cloud over in the early part of the day, and it never did. However, I had already arranged to see my spritely 99 yr old ancient aunt in the afternoon, so never had the opportunity to further explore the beautiful area known as ‘The Malverns’. I’m sure there is more to offer the photography enthusiast in the delightful part of the Midlands UK and I therefore hope to hear from any of the locals, other recommendations.

Looking towards Swan Pool

March for most parts of England has been a good month so far, after a wetter than wet winter

Moving on

The Malvern hills is the backdrop waiting to be explored

Intended intense saturation!

Priory Church presumably

This sculpture was produced by Tom Harvey in June 2009 from a storm-damaged Cedar

Swan Pool

The Local Resident was about 30' away

This bridge was restored back to its original condition in 2010

Best regards to all

Keith

You could say that!!!!

Oloneo PhotoEngine is my favoured software.

Keith I enjoyed your photographic journey of the Midlands. Also your PP done with Oloneo created a very pleasing effect to the eye.

Thank you for sharing.

Rob.

To keep my brain active I'm looking forward to my next trip. So much to see yet and not enough time.

Thanks for that Rob. Not so sure the fine spell of weather is going to last, but getting out and about to witness the spring flowers and early blossom has been quite exhilarating after a most depressing winter. I hope to cover far more beauty spots of the Midlands UK this spring and summer than in previous years; the SX50 as my companion.

Awesome compositions, and beautiful landscape to boot.

However, way back in 2003 when I was looking for a camera I wanted to buy a Canon Powershot but could not get over the purple fringing it produced. Looks like that issue is still there after 11 years.

Ahh, and only a pixel peeper would severely crop and comment. You can find PF on many images from most any p&s and even from a 4/3 cam. Care to post yours? Oh wait, you don't even have one image in your gallery.

Hi enemjii and many thanks for your input. When I first started with digital, I was experiencing very much the same issues with Fuji cameras. Were going back to about 2001 and subsequent years where I traded through any number of models including 6800, 6900, 602 7000, (the list goes on!) And although there was something special about Fuji colours, the aberration near the frame edges and corners was depressing.

With a foray into different models and manufacturers from time to time, looking into my history it would seem that I have been getting the greatest satisfaction from Canon cameras and tinkering with shall we say, 'interesting software'! And here is the cruncher, because if you view the originalof the crop you have posted, you would think that PF was scarcely an issue. It’s like I have inadvertently exacerbated the fringing with my over-zealous manipulation of the image. Serves me right!

The original file before processing

And a hearty thanks to all that have posted a comment.  Much appreciated.

Keith

I am not a pixel peeper by any means. I look at the picture, and the blue was distracting enough in this picture because a tree does not have blue leaves. If it did, I wouldn't bother. But if you mean to say the blue is not visible, then I have better eyesight than you have!

Hi Enemjii: Have a look at my response in my following thread. I appreciated your input.

Serves you Right! Stop messing with the photoshop so much

I am glad the purple fringing that I saw was not straight out of the camera! Gives me hope that Canon has definitely made progress on this front.

Spot on: The cameras have improved quite significantly I feel, with each new iteration. Then it's down to idiots like me to 'cook' a moderately acceptable image.

Cheers
