Windsor's Clock

HA!  Of course I had to find the clock!  There it was high above the castle wall even before we entered the Windsor Castle gates. 

And you thought I wouldn't show it???

Oh yes, the weather vane came along for the ride.  Two for the price of one.  :)

LOL the clocks have started to grow on me smile I've noticed that sepia shots with a completely white background actually look real nice! I might have to try it sometime tongue
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, those white backgrounds aren't done on purpose, Mia. They just are what they are when I take the shot. But thank you kindly nonetheless.
And it gives a timeless tone to it too !! That's great Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You're so kind, Florence. Thanks. That's kinda what I was going for.

you seem to catch thes clocks pretty well, I am jealous.
Ginnie Hart: They seem to be everywhere in Europe, Dotun, as I'm finding out. I love them so much!
They are both worth catching. Great shot, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Thanks, Karen.
Ha ha - why am I not surprised at this one Ginnie...?? grin

Though I'm eager to know how that weather vane works? Is it just a wind direction indicator or is there more to it?
Ginnie Hart: I know you're not surprised, Thomas. smile

Wish I could answer you about the weather vane. It almost looks like a TV antenna, doesn't it!

Can I repeat myself? You are an artist! smile
Awesome detail level, colors are great, and I really like that the clock minute hand (is it the correct name?), that sort of stick over the clock and the weather vane are all lined up perfectly, nice geometry.

Great picture as always, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: You are too kind, Rob. One day soon I will really disappoint you, I'm afraid. sad

But in the meantime! smile I was wondering about that "stick" above the clock (after I uploaded it and saw it) and wonder if it has it's own little vane/antenna? It's weird what we see afterwards, isn't it! I would have relooked at a differnet angle to see it better.
Yes, Ginnie. As usual, a wonderful photo. Great job.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Kay!
ginnie well done. i love the choice of tone.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Genevieve. That means a lot.
as always you did a good job Ginnie, right on time smile
Ginnie Hart: Being on time is the name of the game, Frederic, especially when you're off to see the Queen. smile
Very nice composition Ginnie. I like sepia there too. Nice ! Have a nice day !
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Roland. Thanks.
Ah the clocks, the clocks, but what time is it ? smile
Ginnie Hart: Well, now, let me see, Johnny. I just looked up and it says it's 2:34p Atlanta time. smile
A lovely picture . I knew a clock was coming !!
Ginnie Hart: I bet you did, Shakara! smile

Excellent pic of something Ginnie would like. I should ecard it to her smile

Love the composition, sepia and contrasts that you created. Crisp pic.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Ginnie would like to know something like this, Louis! smile Thanks.

I was thinking the same as Mia yesterday too, the white sky actually works GREAT in these sepia treatments. This one is just elegant, you're giving us a whole new view of this castle through your treatments. The contrasts and details in the clock, roof tiles, stones, trims and that delicate weathervane are splendid. Wow.
Ginnie Hart: I had never thought of this, Ruth, but maybe when I get those white skies I need to always think first if maybe sepia would be the best treatment. Food for thought.

I didn't want these Windsor Castle pics to be ho-hum to people who have seen them a million times. So I'm glad you like them. Thanks, Sweetie.
Hey it´s lunch time smile
Nice sepia tone in this shot Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Magnus, we had lunch at the Stonehenge restaurant just after this. smile I like that this clock will always give me that point of reference.

Great shot. Is that one gap in the cornice manned by archers? I wish one of my barns had a clock like that. Happy equinox.
Ginnie Hart: Awwww. Thanks a million, Ted, for commenting here. That means the world to me. I'm afraid if one of your barns had a clock like this, we would think your barn was suspect. smile

Oh, well spotted, and perfectly executed, the detail is superb. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you much, Ellie. smile
oh! it is time!
Ginnie Hart: HA! It's always time, O-P! smile
what a beautiful clock! I'm think b&W or color the photo might look much the same. Great work.
Ginnie Hart: Now you're making me want to go back to see the original, Jen, because I can't quite remember it now in color. Isn't it funny how that happens! Thanks.
Beautiful and the weather vane looks very interesting. Did you wait until the clock showed 11?
Ginnie Hart: HA! You know how these things are, Julia. Half of the stuff I capture I don't see until later. But that always makes for a nice surprise. I do know that I captured this just before we entered the castle gate, so I will now always know what time that was. smile

I love the way you have processed these shots - very nice effect
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Paul.
Very well done Ginnie, I like very much your choice of sepia tone here !
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Zeb, for backtracking through all these pics. smile
