St Lukes Church in West Baldwin was formerly attached to the parish church of Kirk Braddan and now Marown, the church was built in 1836 on the site of a Celtic church called “Keeill Abban”, an ancient Celtic cross has also been built into the west gable section of the building which was also used as a school up to 1871.

Behind this chapel and up the hill is the ancient site of *Tynwald which was held there as far back as 1429 and is now marked by a circle of stones.

The image was captured on my Fuji X10 camera resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

The remains of this trawler which sank in June 1927 when she was driven onto half tide rocks in South Ramsey Bay and broke up. The incident occured when the men aboard the Cevic were attempting to rescue the ship’s lifeboat, which had got into trouble. A flare was sent up and the Ramsey lifeboat was launched. All the crewmen were saved, but the Cevic sank!

St. Sanctain’s Church, Santon, stands on the site of an ancient Church or Keeill built around fifteen hundred years ago, It is strategically placed and commands a view of a large sweep of the sea looking towards the north-west coast of England and the mountains of North Wales. It can be seen by travellers sailing on the sea and flying by air as they come over the coastline towards Ronaldsway Airport. Thus for fifteen centuries the present Church, and its predecessors, have always been a landmark by sea, land and air. The present building was erected in 1774 and is a good example of an old Manx Church with its white walls and rectangular shape.

The original building was one of over a hundred Celtic Keeills, or “treen” churches, which were scattered all over the Island.

The images were all captured on my Fuji X10 camera, resized and cropped in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

I have taken a few images of this little chapel over the years, I am really pleased how HDR has brought out the texture in the rendering of the chapel.

The image was captured on my Nikon S3000 camera and post processed in Dynamic Photo HDR and Adobe CS5.

Well I have to be honest and say that I never thought that I would say that I like HDR Photography, in fact quite the opposite, I never liked it and thought it was a bit of a cheat!

How wrong I was and my turning point was seeing many of my forum members starting to use this HDR imaging, it was at this point that I realised I could either carry on not agreeing with it or make some changes and at least try it out!

So what is HDR Imaging, well HDR stands for High Definition Range In simple layman terms it is the ability to take a series of different exposures of the same scene and combining them in post processing so basically all the image is properly exposed.

And it is as simple as that, well apart from the post imaging Photoshop adjusting etc.

Here are a couple of examples of my HDR imaging, click on them to see a larger image and feel free to write a comment if you wish 🙂
