    Make sure you go back, will you? This is too interesting a subject to only take this one photo with the blown-out sky. You will want to get it in some different light. And then ... creepy as it may be, and forbidden even, maybe? ... but don't you feel like going inside and taking some photos there? Looks like a wonderful place to explore (though I would need to don my brown trousers! :shock: ). (I assume it is empty - now IS IT?)

    its not far from my house and when i was a kid we used to dare each other who could stay in it the longest LOL you think its creepy now... you want to try going inside at NIGHT!!! wooaah!!

    i have this picture taken without the zoom, i took this just before the one above

    i tried taking the pictures on auto... but looking on the LCD and Histogram they were always too dark?? so i switched to manual and made them a little darker.

    nothing has been changed on these pictures accept the size, any comments are welcome, im a newbie and comments help me learn

    Thanks

    awesome set, I think myskill's modification works really well. The private property shot is my favorite.

    I LOVE the finger in that one shot hehe I found it funny I havent had the finger in the shot in a long time, I miss it.

    Clegg Hall today is literally a shell of its former self. Records testify to a building on this site as early as 1135 and there are indications that its history may go back even earlier than that.

    i think thats my first finger!! oooer :)

    i didnt notice it till it will posted.

    Myskill's mod, is good, sets the mood well.

    there are some websites on the house... it seems to be quite famous..and OLD

    the house is been refurbished... it was stood empty for 60 years

    if you want to see some of the pictures from nearly 100 years ago
    "Some time in the early 1900s there was a fire at Clegg Hall and it has never been whole since" .....untill now ;)
