I finally managed to find some time to take photographs today and spent a happy couple of hours wandering around Blackpool's North Shore. This one is a shot of the metalwork that is being buried in the beach to support the new seawall, currently being installed along most of Blackpool's seafront.

And in case you're wondering, this is an HDR image, constructed from a single RAW file using Photomatix Pro.

In other news …

First: if you haven't already seen it, we posted our latest tutorial over the weekend – Portraits: part one. There are some brief details on the tutorials page and some further information here.

Second: I don't know how many of you read Digital SLR User, published in the UK, but I had a commissioned article published in it this month called 'A picture a day'. It was about my experiences of running an image-a-day photoblog and includes eight images. There's a certain irony about the title, since I haven't posted anything since last Thursday, but I still aim to post an image each day, even if I don't always manage to do it. Anyway, I thought I'd mention it as I think it's good news that the photography press are getting a bit more interested in photoblogging.

From now on I'll be a regular contributor to the magazine, and will be writing a short article each month in much the same format as I post here: a single image, the EXIF data, and some explanatory text.
