Welcome To The Abbey

Posted by
P J W Miller (Chase Terrace, United Kingdom) on 6 May 2009 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

Something a little different. A Hungarian Violin player at the Abbey for your enjoyment. Come out of the darkness and into the colourful interior of this superb building.

Does it work? I don't know, it's just an experiment in expressionism. There are actually three parts to the image. The main element is the mono exterior and colour interior, the Hungarian is from near Balaton and was playing at a garden party and the sky is stolen from a recently posted image of a church.

Your honest opinion is welcomed thank you and in return you shall have mine.

I'm here on

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Well, I think it works very well as a good collage well done. It's a funny invitation to enter in the enclosure of the abbey :)

While I think the abbey photo is strong enough to stand on it's own the violin player definitelyGre does add interest to image. Great collage.

It puts a smile on my face so I'd say the photo works.

Bill from Bay Area Northern California, United States

such a great window to frame a portrait - the detail is fantastic, yet not distracting to the main event (the musician) - great image!

Godo from Barcelona, Spain

It looks to me from a tourism leaflet.
It's funny and a nice collage work
Who did say that the photography must be serious?

It's a fun image, I don't think I could have put this together so well, all that blending would drive me insane!

works for me Pete! for a second, I believed that this photo was just a single image with different exposures combined.. but there was something strange with the man, he looked out of place hehe

anyway, great work of art man.

Don from spokane, United States

I think it's a fine experimental image. I especially like how the player seems to be appear in 3D. Nice one.

hugo poon from hong kong, Hong Kong

Oh Peter, what a surprise!!! Never expected such a joyful and lively image from this series... but it's really lovely!:-) Beautiful catch!!!

Ajay from Pune, India

The way you've composed it almost looks like a photo frame on the wall. Amazing contrast of wall and the background.

Ted from South Wales, United Kingdom

Sorry Peter...not for me. Not sure whether it is the clash of the three or his cheesy stance...but I applaud you for pushing the boundaries!!

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

A very welcoming shot , you should suggest it to the tourism office of the place...

Vinman from Essex, United Kingdom

At first glance I didnt realise it was a merged image but looking at it closely it does have a Terry Gilliam/Monty Python-esque feel to it. I keep expecting his mouth to open and head to spin around!

Bookfool from Mississippi, United States

I think it works. I did wonder if it was a combination of images, mostly because it's hard to get the lighting right in three different places.

xavier cardell from menorca-barcelona, Spain

I must say that if you blured the edges og the violin player it'd work better. Nice job anyway
