Drain Clouds II
I have been experimenting with combining multiple long exposures through HDR software. I am curious about how this will affect the quality of the water and other aspects of the shot. Naturally, this brought me back to the Ross Bay storm drain which I have featured many times over the past year.
This photo is processed within Photomatix from 6 brackets. I was going to end a series with this one, and give more of an explanation of what I have been up to with some other versions. But, that can wait because this one follows nicely from the chair photo of a couple of days ago which was processed with nearly the same settings. This is the view if you were to take that chair and move it about 10 m from where it had been abandoned (if you peer closely at that picture, right above the waste-bin, you can see the end of the drain).
I processed this photo for black and white with an emphasis on the sky, but then decided it needed a bit of colour put back in. This upload also is a bit darker than I thought I had produced, perhaps it is a WP artifact, or maybe it is just the way I am looking at things.
