It's Not You Know........

By Morgs  
What isn't it?

HDR that's what it's not!!!


Because my Pixmantec software appears to be playing up and leaving a spotlight effect at the end of the tonemapping, despite looking ok during the processing stage!!!

So, an old fashioned straight shot out of the camera?

Well, maybe not, a few tweaks here and there and this is what we have.

Ta for looking. I was in and out of the museum in a flash for this shot. They don't like tripods you know!!!!

Incredible, Dave!

One of the best architectural shots I've seen for a very long time.
Perfectly composed and exposed; all the more so precisely because of the lack of HDR (which I normally hate!).

Alas, another Morgan (The Coastmeister) got my award last night, otherwise ....
As it is, it now occupies top spot on the shortlist!

Magnificent work.

Beautifully composed shot.
Looks like HDR even though it isn't. Its amazing how close you can get to your 'vision' by persevering until you get there.

A fabulous building captured so so perfectly.
