Default Gostwyck Woolshed

Earlier this year we took a Sunday drive out past the historic Gostwyk woolshed. This shed was built to a most unusual octagonal design, and is registered with the National Trust [of Australia] as a building of significance. The original shed was built in 1861 but burnt down. Rebuilt in 1869, it is also one of the oldest and largest sheds in Australia. Its three-tier roof with a clerestory of glass ventilators allows shearers to work in a well lit and ventilated environment. The shed is still in use today.

While the building is quite interesting, I like the last shot -- of the old wagon.

I really like the composition of the last shot. So much so that I was using it to try the different filters in Topaz Adjust, Clean, and Simplify. I hope you don't mind this is just one sample.



It reminds me of the Ikea prints my wife and I adorned our family room walls with.

Thanks everyone for your comments - I'm rather partial to the last one myself.

vvcarpio: any time you'd like to experiment with any of my pics go ahead. Certainly is a different treatment - would go well in a storybook. I'm very much a novice when it comes to that sort of pp. I only have Thorstein Lemke's Graphic Converter software (Macintosh) and have only scratched the surface of its capabilities.

Sharpshot Gal: Unfortunately the shed is not open to the public. Shearing is done in July (mid-winter). One of my sons shore there a few years ago and said it was quite impressive. For the spinning I'll have to take a trip to the wool mills at Nundle. It's on my 'to do' list.
