Here are six shots from our morning at Dunster.  In the first three I have attempted to reflect the “new and old” theme.  Again, all were taken with my Lumix TZ200 pocket camera on fully automatic.

My images from our Dunster visit.   The first three follow the suggested theme of “Ancient & Modern in Dunster”, and the others are along the lines of what I might expect to see in Dunster.   All were taken on my Canon 5DII, with 50mm (Standard) lens and at ISO 200 (save where mentioned).   Usual basic tweaks in Lightroom.

A word on how the images were cropped might be of interest.  I do crop almost every image, some quite substantially.   Amongst the above I cropped “Ancient town” by removing the left & bottom sides, and “Church traffic” by removing top & bottom edges: in both cases so as to force the two elements of the image together, i.e. the man into the town and to really congest the traffic with the church.   I also took out a sizeable block at the bottom of “Sitting Room” to emphasise the width and spread of the benches.   “Covid Bridge” was only cropped to get the stream bank level.   Of course, others may have chosen to crop differently, or indeed believe that one shouldn’t crop at all!

Unlike Alex, I’ve come late to using a mobile phone for serious photography.  I shot Dunster Ancient and Modern using an iPhone and edited the results on an iPad.  I was amazed by the handheld performance in lowlight within the church, but distracted by the strong sun on the screen outside.  

Currently, a fully mobile workflow is frustrated by the lack of printer profiles on iPadOS.
