Took a trip out to Rainham Marshes today as the weather was doing nice things for a change but for a crisp day it was very hazy.

This was taken into the sun at full zoom with a polariser fitted. The original shows a huge vignette where I was fully stretched but which I corrected in E10 using the camera correction filter, and to even out the light across the image I overexposed the centre. Converted to b/w and desatured quite a bit to enhance the mistyness.

V2 is the original jpeg so you can see how much vignetting you get with the Tamron 18-270mm and using a polariser. I quite like it really as it's clearer and punchier, albeit unintentional, but I'll let you decide.
V1 is more how it actually looked in real life.

You can just about see some vehicles crossing the bridge and the suspension cables holding up the bridge.

Hope you're all enjoying some bright weather for a change peeps. Smile

V.2 gets my vote, Chris, and as I type this at 7.10pm I can hear the rain bucketing down Sad Carol

Well, It is just after noon here, no rain but some very cold wind--

You have done some very creative work with this image-- both please, but for different reasons!

Version one seems to add a rather likeable softness to the already hard subject.

I prefer v1 Chris. Looks as if you are peering through the fos, and the vagueness of the outlines on the ship and bridge and mysterious.

I really like your recovery work Chris on v1. The cables and cars are excellent through the mist.

I like V2 even more as it gives more detail. Great atmosphere, life is not always bright and this certainly offers a different view of something familiar and clear. I like this de-familiarizing effect a lot.

Very moody. I'm going for V2 as I like a bit of a vignette and I like the extra clarity!

Quite a misty morning which has given the mono version an old feel to it, unfortunately it appears a little flat which is why I have to say I do prefer V2 as it has more contrast.
