Southwold – Suffolk. A touch of HDR

Southwold Seafront - Suffolk

Dug out an old image and had a play. Whilst I don’t generally ‘do’ HDR, I took this shot bracketed and had 3 RAW files 2 stops apart. Added another 2 for -1 and +1 in lightroom then ran them through Photomatix to see if I could recover the cloudy sky yet still keep some detail in the houses.
Not really sure what else I did to it other than a little cross processing and a vignette but was quite pleased with the result.

A rather dismal day welcomed us to Ireland as we sailed past Roche’s Point on our way to berth at Cobh. Taken handheld, hanging off of the back of the Independence of the Seas. There will be more to follow as soon as I get round to processing them all.
