One from last nights trips to Blakney point, North Norfolk.
One of my personal favourites from this series.

I apologise to all that commented, voted, and gave a UA for this image, Unfortunately I uploaded the wrong version and this is the version I wanted to upload.
I was not happy with the sky on the last image as it was not clean enough Sad.

Thank you all for your comments and votes, as alway very much appreciated.


Quote: amazing hdr shot, very impressive sky

This is not a HDR, it is a single image, I use filters to keep the bright light of the sun down to achieve an even ish exposure and then what I cannot achieve in camera I lighten and darken in Lightroom to get the final balance then on to CS5 for final adjustments.

I can see why you would say it is a HDR, it certainly has that look about it, thank you for your comment and vote much appreciated.

I really do like this a lot Ian. Apart from being a beautiful image it is technically excellent. The exposure control and balance looks faultless. ( it doesn't look like HDR to me)

Stunning shot.

Love how it looks like HDR, but isn't so great use of filters. Must try out my Hoya NDX400 "black glass" soon...
