Visiting Kent – Knole | RyanPhotography

Taken by Ashley Ryan   Second in my new series of Visiting Kent; another great place to visit is Knole in Sevenoaks, which is owned and maintained by the National Trust.  If you are a National Trust member and visit by car the parking is Free.  It is also free to enter Knole Park on foot.  However if you wish to take your car there is ample parking and the cost is just £4 (2016 prices). Knole is renowned for its deer and is Kent’s version of Richmond Park.  There are plenty of open spaces for children to play and there are some lovely estate walks…  Some paths at Knole are accessible for wheelchair owners and there is a lovely little tea/coffee shop. Taken by Bren Ryan   And of course the highlight of your day would be to see the deer that freely roam Knole Park.

The grounds and gardens are beautiful at Quex Park and there are plenty of picnic areas and places for kids to run around.  And after you’ve visited Quex Park it isn’t too far to the beach… and on a bright, hot sunny day there is nothing like a paddle in the sea. Taken by Bren Ryan – SOOC The original as you can see had rather a lot of black blemishes on it.. and a wasp and bug that were lurking in the centre of the flower… so I sent the photo to Photoshop direct from Lightroom and using the ‘Spot Healing Tool’ I removed the black blemishes and the tail of the wasp and black bug.  After that I made ‘Black and White Adjustment Layer’ and I made the layer mask black by using ‘Control + I’ and then I painted away the parts  where I wanted the black and white.  My next task was to add a ‘Level Adjustment Layer’ and adjusted the levels. After that I then sent the

Country Roads – Take me home | RyanPhotography

Taken by Bren Ryan This photograph was taken by St Margaret’s Church in High Halstow, near Rochester, Kent and comprised of 6 photos at different exposures.  I then merged them in Photomatix and added a autumn tone to the picture, by using a preset in Photomatix and once the photograph was re-imported back to Lightroom I then adjusted the tones and added split toning to achieve the above effect.
