I took a trip up to the Wyre wrecks yesterday with Alistair, Dave and Michael, three fellow photobloggers from the Blackpool area. Photographically it wasn't a great success ;– the only shot I like from the trip is this one – but it was good to get out and about with some like-minded people.

As for this one: it's a partial HDR. I used Photomatix Pro to combine three original RAW files, which I used for the foreground. I then combined the tone-mapped result with the sky from the underexposed original. The net result is a reasonably natural looking shot with a much better tonal balance than any of the originals. I've included a link to one of the originals below (shot with a shutter speed of 1/250).
