This is a pseudo-HDR image, i.e. it was generated within Photomatix Pro from a single RAW file, and was shot on Blackpool seafront last weekend after Craig and I had walked for about three miles in the rain. With the benefit of hindsight, and after seeing the version that Craig posted, I wish I'd gone a bit wider and/or shot from an angle rather than head-on, but on the whole I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

If you're interested, there's a straight conversion of the original here:

As you can see, the tone mapping has really brought out every last scrap of detail.
