Durham cathedral

By xwang
I did make great effort on this one. I always remembered the picture in my mind, that was walking alone the river looking back at the cathedral. So I went to down the river to take a real photo.Grin I saw a lady was taking photos around this area, I thought :' I'd take a better one...'Grin, when I walked across her...No, I was kidding.. the reason was that she was standing on the left side of the picture, I had to cross to reach the end of the path standing against the wall so that I could get the water leading to the house and the cathedral....When I took the bracketing photos, they looked all wrong, I didn't know that this camera's bracketing setting is different form the old one.. I only found out at this moment when I uploaded the photo. So when I was there, I had to take 4 set of bracketing=12 photos! Oh..What a great effort!Grin The clarity might be suffered a bit by my forgetting to turn IS on.

OK, thank you Eleftheria. I've changed the setting and tried a MOD for you to have a look... I couldn't get it better.
Thank you all and MODs are welcome.

Classic composition beautifully captured, Jasmine. I prefer the colour version. It does look HDR but the light and tones are very good, especially the Cathedral against the grey sky.

Great POV, a classic shot that is instantly recognisable as Durham. I think I would like a little less sky.

Thank you all for your kind comments and support. I just noticed that there are some magenta and greenish colour on the sky... after I read Lynne's comment. I had this problem sometimes. It is from the -2 stop shot, because the +2 and 0 one hardly have and detail on the sky..but for some reason, HDR made the Magenta and greenish colour stronger. Anybody who knows the efficient way to get rid of it, please leave a note.

I can see why you wanted to get this point of view, the angle of the water is just right. I like the way the cathedral dominates the image.

super comp. I've had a play ..... added `punch' in Lightroom and then used the on screen tonal slider and selective colour luminance Smile

Thank you Jeff for your MOD.
Thank you Wille for your MOD as well.
Have you seen the Magenta and greenish colour in the sky? In my opinion, they are 'nasty', and has to be removed. So for, I haven't found an efficient way to remove them yet. Reduce noise and blur don't work, and sometimes makes it worse. I'm going to "Target" on this problem and work on it,Grin.. your idea is appreciated. Thanks again.
Thank you alll.
