Getting back to the GMdP set now.  Andy and I spent a little more time in the right hand wing of the mill as the floors looked a little more solid, only just though. There was a good deal of walking where we expected the supports to be. Luckily there were no mishaps. This side of the mill was far more together with floors mostly intact and a good deal of (not very interesting) machinery left rusting. This was fairly hard to frame – trying to get all the elements of the image in was a challenge, the graffiti, corridor and hole in the floor. It took quite a bit of adjustment , moving the tripod back and forth and tweaking the angle. I like the outcome though.

Thee have been a few comments bouncing around my HDR / Twitter friends regarding the HDR debate. I’m somewhat tired of it too. All of my images are HDR, however the initial image is generally fairly flat. most of the work that I do on images to give them punch (or overdo / turn up to 11) is done with filters. It would matter very little if the image was HDR or not. I use the HDR technique to give greater light and shadow, to bring out detail in darker areas of an image.

Bottom line is that I process and shoot for myself. this is not my job, its a hobby and something that I enjoy very much. If you like my photos comment, if you don’t comment as well. I shan’t be offended. This is the first and last post I shall make on the subject.
