A Good Morning for a Walk
Location: Pool adjacent to WashBrook and Cadman's Lane, Fishley
Back in to the swing of early morning walks now that sunrise is at the civilised time of 6:47 am (I know, still too early for some). This is a very rarely visited location, other than for the wildlife, which this morning included some ducks, heron, buzzard and red deer.
Technical: A 5 image HDR, one EV steps. Processed in Lightroom Photomerge HDR. I caught a free tutorial on making and editing natural looking HDRs in Lightroom by Jared Platt on Creative Live which was a bit of a revelation on how to use this function. Creative Live broadcast live classes on different subjects every day and some have been really interesting. They usually continue on a loop for 24-48 hours and while some go on for hours, this was a relatively short class.
Anyway, once merged it was a simple use of basic sliders to finalise the image.
Ps Had to smile this evening - I uploaded another of my images from this shoot to BBC Weather Watchers - it was shown on the local magazine programme Midlands Today...............for all of 2 seconds! Fame is even briefer these days.
