This one is especially for Gunnar [saxo042].
He rightly guessed that there was a pub close to my last posting. All I had to do was to turn through 180° and here it was! Again this can be seen clearly on the Google Earth shot.
Taken against the sun, this was again a difficult shot to PP, so I will post the original in a WS as it came out of the camera, with some of the details of my workflow.
Taken as JPEG: PP in FastStone and PhotoShop 7.

I knew it! There are many pubs in Britain and this one looks particularly attractive and the despription I found here is also indicating that this is a pub I would like to visit! And I like the "red details" of flowers here too!

Another fine photograph from your little Canon compact.
Again, on balance, I think I do prefer the slightly warmer tones of its pictures as compared to those from the Fujifilm camera. In any case, the colours here are superb, the exposure spot-on and the whole picture is very sharp.
An excellent picture of this lovely thatched inn or pub which, I am sure, would really appeal to Gunnar. But more interesting than all that are the extensive details you give in your workshop posting of all the stages and steps in your processing. Clearly, moving files about as TIFF's results in no loss of information (unlike JPEG's which lose information at each stage) but I was intrigued to see that you resize, sharpen and reduce the file size to near 300Kb whilst still at the TIFF stage and before converting to JPEG and saving. Surely converting from TIFF to JPEG reduces the file size very significantly: and does not sharpening itself increase file size?

having just read your workshop pp flow notes I can say thay this work paid off handsomely. The picture has really been brought to life.The splash of extra colopur from the flowers makes this extra appealing.
This is just the sort of place to enjoy a summer lager or glass of white wine.

I chose these picture for the decoration in the reed roof.
Ten year ago came here in Flanders als a English thatcher with the same decoration.
I don't know or this come out of England?
Splendid house, fine for look at.
Composition and presentation are superb. TFS.
Have a nice sunday,
