Thread: Inch Abbey

  1. #1

    Inch Abbey

    Hi All,
    I've been real busy lately and haven't had much time to pinhole. However, a week ago I went to a place called Inch Abbey. The site was originally an island (Irish for island is 'Inis'). It's 12th-13th century Gothic and was built by John de Courcy in repentance for having previously destroyed another Abbey 3miles south of this one. I used Fuji Quickload 160ASA 5x4 film and a Rigby pinhole camera. Attached files

    Great images that really work in colour! Everything has been so well handled - beautiful soft lighting, the wide angle focal length [with its associated vignetting] and excellent composition. As a series they are stunning - particularly No.3. The framing of the tree between the two crumbling walls reinforces the feeling of age and decay!

    You have the material for a powerful triptych - certainly worthy of framing.

    Regards,

    Lawrie.

    A great series of pictures. The colour version works well. But looking at the scenery I think it would be ideal for IR pictures. Sorry, I could not resist to convert one of your pictures digitally in an IR version. John, I hope you don't mind.

    #3....a masterful composition that breaks from the more traditional and documentary shots you so often see. Great batch of images!

    John: the third one works for me in so many ways - interesting division of the picture plane, negative space, chiaroscuro, color. One of my recent favorites.

    Doc for some reason I like the balance and mood in the first picture. I have always felt Fuji film was made for the color green. Very nice pictures.
