You'll never guess where I am.
Or perhaps you might.
Norther than north, and the rain's stopped.

This (HDR'd) wall is right next to my door, the crane's sleeping, waiting to have a go at my trailer's contents first thing in the morning.

I was up at twenty past three this morning, time for bed said Zebedee.

Surely the top shot will be your second highlight of the day - although there are only 5 minutes of today left. But if there was any justice it would be. I'm not always fond of HDR but that is an absolutely fantastic image.

Well tnx peeps!
Heavily Photosopped images rarely get HL'd Cariadus, it is, after all, a cam-phone based blog.

Sharp scissors and (digital) sellotape.

Sorry, just me, being me.

Three identical images, over, under & normally exposed are combined in a program called photomatix to produce a single image with a High Dynamic Range (HDR), ie; detail in the darkest shadows as well as in the brightest highlights.
Then the image is "tone-mapped" (a part of the photomatix programme) to produce the effect you see here.

. . . . . and then I play around with Vignetting, sharpening, a little de/saturation and, before I know it, it´s time to get up and go back to ) proper work.
