Title • wyre wreck #12

Like yesterday's shot, this is an HDR (high dynamic range) image constructed from four originals, all shot at f/8.0 with shutterspeeds from 1/400th to 1/25th. Unlike yesterday's though, which looked reasonably natural for an HDR image, I've processed this one more extensively. I did think about going for a reasonably natural look with this one too but, in the end, decided to go for a more dramatic feel with this one, not least because I thoroughly enjoy processing this sort of image.

I don't know about you, but I find post-processing very therapeutic: it's absorbing, there's an end-point to discover and work towards, it doesn't require logic or verbalisation ... it's generally a relaxing process. Well, it is when I've got something decent to work with in the first place; it's more of a pain when I'm archive raiding and trying to make something out of less than ideal material. Under these circumstances though, it's definitely a thoroughly pleasurable experience.

Anyway, I'm rambling, not least because Finley has kept us both up for most of the last few nights. I don't think there's anything especially wrong with him, other than a slight cold, but he seems to think that the hours between 1.00am and 5.00am are ones during which he should be awake ... which is a bit of a pain.

On which note, I'll shut up. Let me know what you think about this one as I suspect there will be some of you who like it and some who think it's overdone.

Oh, and you should view this one with the black theme.
