There is an interesting little quay on the River Tyne just off Wapping Street in South Shields, it is lined with small boat building yards, a heritage centre which restores old wooden boats and ships, and other workshops. This is where I found the Sandra Marie laid up waiting for work.
This was a three shot HDR worked in Nik HDR Efex followed by a little bleach bypass treatment in Nik Color Efex. I'm pretty pleased with the end result which came close to replicating some of the paintings that I'd seen by local riverside artists.
Here's a much larger version for you to enjoy.
