The Whitby series #16

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 1 October 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

aka - Twin headlamps at Whitby

Hopefully I will have some new material to show shortly, and I may have some more time to get around your photoblogs and make some comments on your work.

This is the end of the pier show at Whitby in glorious monochrome (just don't know where some of the huge "blocks" in the processing came from - lack of RAM?)

PENTAX K100D 1/3000 second F/3.5 ISO 200 27 mm (35mm equiv.)

Use control and your mouse scroll wheel to zoom the picture/page, then control and 0 to reset to normal size.

Even though I may not be able to visit or respond daily, I always welcome your comments or critiques.

Err, the only blocks I can see are the ones that make up tower, and I guess they are supposed to be there. Lovely end to a lovely series

@CElliottUK: I'm seeing large blocks and lines to the left of the main lighthouse, which I think occurred when I used Nik Silver.

Richard from Duns, United Kingdom

Fabulous processing, superb shot

This looks great! Did your original show some missed processed area?

1 Oct 2010 7:40am

@Fraucha: No, I think this happened when I used Nik software.

Florence from Paris, France

Great HDR PP, perfect in mono.

My first thought was HDR processing? other than that, the blocks might come from JPEG compression (see the sky in this shot where i've had a similar problem). Still a lovely shot though

A very stark intense image that fits together the HDR and B+W well !!!

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Unfortunately this is not an HDR.

Julie Brown from Indianapolis, United States

The structure is very interesting. As usual, your processing enhances the texture and lines.
