Overlooking Maughold Church towards North Barrule Mountain (HDR)

I captured this image this afternoon whilst out for a walk over Maughold Headlands, you can see the weather front moving across North Barrule mountain and shortly after this image was taken it absolutely chucked it down!

The image was captured on my Nikon D80 DSLR with a Nikon 18-105 F3.5/5.6 G AFS DX lens, dipped in HDR, cropped and resized in Adobe Photoshop CS5.

  1. Hi Peter.
    This is my favourite HDR image so far, a lovely sky and the church is beautifully set. I hsve looked at other sites with people trying HDR and there does seem to be a common problem with soft edges to buildings! It may be just that my interpretation is flawed but looking back at the image from the Gooseneck it reminds me of an old picture postcard where the picture is just not sharp!
    Of course the Camera Obscura is an exception because it is so close, that is a cracking picture but the only thing I dont like is the sea colour, the bright blue on the RHS of the image just doesnt seem to gel with the LHS which I realise is under cloud, it just looks odd to me. Please keep doing these though as I really enjoy looking at all your images.

  2. Hi Paul

    I really do appreciate your comments and thanks for taking the time to do this.

    I love having a play with HDR and sometimes it is so time consuming compared to normal imaging! but I will keep at them.

    I agree about the Camera Obscura and as you have eluded to its all down to the cloud colouring the sea.

    The problem that I had with the Gooseneck image was that it was a little hazy and then when you merge your HDR it is even hazier!

    Keep in touch Paul and keep giving me feedback 🙂
