The Engine House

By Nick_w      
I know I said I'd leave you a alone for a few months (I will after this promise), but I thought it would be rude not to say Happy New Year.

Seriously, I had hoped to get out with the camera, but the weather put pay to that, so I thought I would brush up on a few techniques. I havent done any HDR in many moons so I wondered if I could still do it. I'm pretty pleased with this, taken at Grosmont nearly 3 years ago. I could never get it as I liked so I ditched the file (a mono version can be seen on the other channel) Wink ). I must say as much as it comes in for criticism, Photomatix still takes some beating, if used sensibly.

Anyway have a great one everyone, hope to catch up soon.

It's the sort of image that HDR was made for Nick. Well processed and it looks a treat ..... the colour adds so much that I can't imagine it working half so well in mono.
