Old Mother Coal
Lens: 18 - 55 Camera: K3ii Photo Location: Blists Hill ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/50s Aperture: F7.1 
Posted By: garethjmorgan, 06-28-2018, 08:16 AM

Taken at Blists Hill Victorian town - exposure tricky due to contrasting light conditions - shows the advantage of bracketing shots! Think the lighting has created the look of an Old Masters painting - although the subject matter is not quite so glamourous!

yes it is - old workshop with no walls to the right of the image - side lighting plus a few small overhead skylights.

I think this old painting should be professionally cleaned to remove the coal dust before it goes back to the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam .

They provided appropriate lighting for the setting - and you made good use of it.
