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 🙂

Seven crewmen lost their lives on 11th January 2000 when their vessel – the scallop dredger Solway Harvester – sank off the East coast of the Isle of Man.

On board were Skipper Andrew Mills (known as Craig), 29, his brother Robin Mills, 33, their cousin David Mills, 17, Martin Milligan, 26, John Murphy, 22, David Lyons, 18, and Wesley Jolly, 17.

The men were all from the Isle of Whithorn area of Dumfries and Galloway.

Through my work I remember that day so well and the subsequent involvement that my work had in the recovery of the vessel and the men on the night they were brought back onto Victoria Pier.

I must say though that my respect and credit goes to Police Inspector Dudley Butt who conducted the whole inquiry from start to finish and was regularly producing press releases along with supporting family members during this terrible period.

I took this image today (11th January 2012) twelve years to the day that this stricken vessel was lost.

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