This is just down the road from where I live, and as such I've taken w=quite a few photos of it - daytime, nightime, in the snow.............
This is a HDR (5 photos if I recall correctly) processed in Photomatix.



You're quite right.
I used a free download of photomatix so I get the 'Photomatix' watermark everywhere. I have to clone stamp it out, but clearly didn't do a very good job there. I should buy the full version to avoid this.
That is very nice Chris. It has the feeling of an Etched Print to it. Nice one.

Fabulous shot Chris, you should be proud of this one. Not sure if it's me, but there appears to be a slight problem in the cloud formation top left, where the cloud appears to be in a straight line, very easily corrected, if indeed it is a problem caused by Photomatix.

Harry

Cheers Andy. :)
May the Force be with you.

Chris

I found this one that I had processed slightly differently.



I like the foreground in this shot and the sun burst  :tup: although the depth of view is better in the other shot, and in this one the lit top right corner grabs to distract from the overall composition.

To my mind and experience, sunrise and sunset photographs often require Graduated Processing to afford the impression of 'capturing what the human eye really sees and registers.'

Manual exposure with the camera propped up on something. I can't remember what, I'm afraid I was rather drunk at the time . .

Can I revive this thread?

Not sure if this is my best shot, but I think I captured the rapture of young love here!

Monday is generally my day off  ( from the shop / studio )  which means weather permitting I get myself of to the Lake District or the Yorkshire Dales. The good thing about having a Monday as my Sunday is that these places are not as populated by the weekend day trippers. Here are a few images from this Monday's trip to The Dales. The first two shots are of Aysgarth Falls, made more famous by the Hollwood film " Prince of Thieves ". The next two images are at Cray. Another area used as a backdrop for the Hollywood version of " Wuthering Heights " in 1992.
Well that's my Passion for Landscapes sorted for this week. Now back to editing last weeks Wedding, Some Product Photography, Passport Photos and another Wedding on Saturday. Roll on Retirement whenever it may happen !

Great area for landscape photography.

I visited a World War I fort on Sunday, and Dutch wedding photographers, in their quest for the new and unusual, are flocking there to get a different shot. I took a photograph of one of the favourite backgrounds, and if it 'works out,' I'll upload it here.

This is one of the locations where couples are 'shot' on their wedding day, these days.

Modern additions are Photoshopped out.

Decided to make a video of a few Landscape shots with help from my best mate  Mark with the music. This is more of a try out than anything else so here it is ( Opinions as always appreciated )   
feature=youtu.be   And to be fair to Mark  here is a video I recorded of his band " Shallow Waters " at a festival in the Midlands last Sunday ( Mark is the lead guitarist on the right of the screen 

Both videos are best viewed clicking on the youtube  link on the videos once you have pressed the play button. :tup:

Now I know and remember who northerndave is , 1 from the images and 2 from the word Skellum in the second video. Hello again Dave! Glad to see you're still going along well in the profession.

The top video brings together some beautiful images and the music moves them along nicely. The match between the picture content and the mood of the music is unusual, in as much landscapes are usually  accompanied  by a more flowing theme, whereas this combination is the opposite, and it works.

There are a number of occasions where a gradual transition between images could work rather than a snap change. This can result in a 'third image' appearing during the transition. It's  a question of taste and I just mention as a suggestion.

That's  my two pence worth.

Love the landscape video, photographs as well as the music.

Too early in the morning, to appreciate the music video.

I too remember Skellum.

Thanks Abers & Reinardina.   :tup:  Yes I have the fade in /out  transition which would of looked much better but unfortunately not enough music to fit it all in.  The name Skellum came from when we emigrated to South Africa in the 60's, its what the local ( Afrikaans ) Police used to call us young English Immigrants. In Afrikaans it means ' Rouge or Scoundrel '. It also pops up in a Robbie Burns Poem.
I used it over here as my Agency Name when I was a Sports / Football League Photographer to try and catch the attention of picture editors when they were fishing through their e.mails. :)
