Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 6 April 2015 in Miscellaneous 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.

This is a small collective of antique shops on the second floor of a corner end shop in Northumberland Street, Newcastle, and I was so glad that I'd found it. I only needed a new watch strap and saw the watchmaker's sign from across the road, my eyes (and lens) opened with delight when I saw the interior of this place - just magical!

This picture brings an end to this visit to Newcastle, and from tomorrow I'll be showing shots taken in another of our regional cities close to South Shields.
