View from the church yard

By Andy42muk    
This picture was taken in Bury St Edmunds with the new Cathedral tower in the distance. I used Luminance HDR to process the tones as the sky was quite burnt out on the original picture. I am pleased with the results as the picture now has an interesting sky and detailed buildings.

There seems to be a haze and I often get it in some of my images. Check the recent image 'Santilliana Del Mar' and see what Carabosse does with it.
Amazing! Guess I'll have to learn that too. Your image here, [and some of mine]. would look great with more colour saturation

Hi Tony, Thank you for your thoughts and pointing me towards the image Santilliana Del Mar. That certainly was a distinct improvement on what was a very 'bleached out' picture.
I purposefully toned down the colours on the buildings. The problem I had was that it was overcast but a very bright sky, so in the orignal teh sky was nearly white, so I had to completely underexpose to get the detailed sky and then use these two images to create the HDR image. The added filter gave it that surreal look.

Thanks once again.

Very interesting methods and purpose. These three buildings are full of potential for more good images. We are without classic subjects like this here on Vancouver Island. Lucky you. TG
