These photos of St. Peter’s Collegiate Church, Wolverhampton were taken on a winter’s night using an automatic setting. When I was editing them in Photo Gallery, I simply increased the exposure on the histogram, and this is what emerged. I like the way the solid stone building not only lacks colour but also substance. So thanks to Jennifer for the interesting challenge of eigengrau: “intrinsic grey” or the colour seen by the eye in perfect darkness. This is my stab at conjuring it.

I think you have done well.
Hi Tish and how have you been?
I am fine thanks, Noel. Have been away on a couple of short trip so not quite got back to wordpress. Hope you are well?
I am well, thanks for asking and hope your trip has been both fruitful and fun
These images ar filled with atmosphere. Love them:)
Hello Janet. They do have atmosphere don’t they. I find it fascinating that the camera could capture things I could not really see myself.
The windows are lovely the way they are illuminated.
They have a mysterious look I think, but in a good way. Thanks for commenting, Mary.
It has a lovely atmosphere 🙂
These are fascinating Tish. So mysterious and soulful.
Hi Suzanne. Thank you. I was surprised how they turned out. A bit disturbing in some ways. Like photos taken in another time.
Yes they do have a strange look to them
Very moody and broody. Needs a werewolf howling in the foreground.
Drat. I just missed snapping one 🙂
I love this interpretation of eigengrau. I’m standing in the square in front of the church. I can barely see or hear, but I know where I am and will start from there – well at least that’s how these images make me feel. Wonderful job. Thank you for sharing.
So pleased you like this post, Jennifer, and that it transported you into my ambit or orbit 🙂
