Boy racers!

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 31 March 2015 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

I recently spent a day up in Newcastle with "Junior" and his girlfriend and decided to shoot some frames with the intention of making HDRs. Many of the scenes are "revisits" but Photomatix is so good at ghost masking now that I decided to get some shots with people in them. The process for masking out "ghost movements" is so simple and so good that you simply cannot be afraid of including moving people in your three frames now.

I post this as my "Silly Tuesday" contribution this week, shot at the Weigh House in Newcastle's Grainger Market.

Nicely-composed shot with great colors!! I, too, can vouch for Photomatix's deghosting. It makes me want to go back in time to previous posts. :-)

Very nice indeed! It is not easy for them, BUT...having those chairs facilitates their existence a lot! And...their life is improved by many other helping equipment nowadays.
