Coffee time

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 1 April 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.

Back to the Grainger Market for a view of Pumphreys, I'm not sure if it was the rich colouring or the rich aroma that attracted me - they grind and roast coffee beans all day long here!

Just ground coffee aroma is awesome. For me, always hungry and eager to get a coffee.

It must be wonderful to just take a walk here, look at the shops, taste here and there, enjoy the aromas..I like your shot and the processing is enticing!
