Posted by Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 11 October 2017 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Some very old terraced houses on the Headland in Hartlepool proved irresistible for a little bit of HDR processing. These houses have faced the winds, waves, and sea spray for over a hundred years, no wonder they look so worn (and delicious.)

A good example where HDR can work very well indeed. Love the detail and tonality hidden in these buildings.
