The North East Maritime Trust is a charity based in Wapping Street down by the River Tyne in South Shields. Its raison d'etre is to keep alive the skills of the old boat builders and shipwrights, from carpentry, to metalwork, engineering to engine building and repair. A small team of volunteers painstakingly restores old wooden boats in their small facility, they are currently working on an abandoned lifeboat - so expect to see some more pictures soon.
This was a single RAW file tone mapped for HDR in Nik HDR Efex, which as I outlined yesterday has some drawbacks.
I'm also busy playing with a new camera, I've been needing a half decent and affordable pocketable point and shoot for some time, this is it, and it looks and feels like a palm full of fun! I even think I ought to be able to shoot hand held HDRs on it whoohoo!
