An interesting example of the effect of low winter sunlight on a building – Mostyn House School at Parkgate, Cheshire.
Most of the black/white contrast has gone from the image on the left, shot towards the sun, which was to the right. The image on the right, taken at the same time of day with the sun behind the camera, shows perfect contrast. These images reflect what the eye was seeing.
Mostyn House School was a school from 1854-2010, now converted to private apartments.
