Original and cheap

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 2 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.

Marks and Spencer's original penny bazaar opened in the Grainger Market, now look how much that company has grown over the years! Only one very fast moving subject here that managed to beat the ghost masking :-)
