Funny isn't it, I decide to take some time out, because I feel jaded, uploading for uploadings sake. I start to archieve some old shots - then get the buzz back, tho processing for my pleasure - and I've processed more images in the last week than I've done in quite some time, and for me some of my best work - and not a DM in sight (well depends what you call DM Wink ).

So New Years ressolution, just process the stuff I want !!

This is from Saltburn (and no its not HDR), taken 2 years ago, I could never get it right, when I tried HDR it was noisy as hell, so back to the drawing board, a bit of manual(ish) blending.

That's a really strong image and a great angle to use. I just posted one of Saltburn pier today but it's quite different from yours. Great place to photograph though.
