photoblog image Black Nab sunrise 5

Black Nab sunrise 5


The last in this series of Black Nab sunrise (although I have a card full of other pictures I might bore you with in the future!).

The sun was well up by this point but starting to move behind the headland. A few minutes later the wreck was in shadow. This needed 3 shots combined to capture the range of tones. I started rummaging around for filters but the light was moving quite fast so I just banged off three shots and layer-masked them later. There was an irritating ship on the horizon that blurred and needed cloning out

Wow, Paul. I love the wide angle of this shot and the colors. Very well done!
paul: it was well worth the early start!
stunning detail and color Paul.
paul: thanks Tim. It doesn't matter how many pictures you take of this place it is always worth taking another smile

beautiful series, very enjoyable
paul: Thanks Zed - I had a great time that day
Fabulous inky-blue set off by the pale orange sky. I like the sculptural quality of the objects too.
paul: I was lucky that the other guy taking photos there moved out of shot before the light changed

A great job of combining the 3 shots Paul. Wonderful image.
paul: this one was fairly straightforward but it really made a difference - none of the 3 originals came close
a bit too photoshopped perhaps...for my taste anyway...but i love the subject of the photo....and composition.
paul: I'll do you a toned down version Sarina smile this may not be quite real but it looks like what it felt like if you know what I mean

This is fab, Paul. Wonderful colours, textures and composiion.
paul: thanks Harv, I thought I would end with my favourite
Nice shot. I like this the best out of the series so far. The processing works well on this image. Where is Black Nab? I'm gonna feel stupid for asking I know,
paul: It is in Saltwick bay, just a short walk from Whitby
Very nice picture and porcessing Paul, something I haven't tried as yet.
paul: It wasn't hard to do Brian and it made a big difference
Yes the light changes so fast in early morning ... Good series Paul. richard
paul: By the time I had found the right ND grads and started trying to work out the exposure I was beginning to be afraid I would miss it. Much quicker to bracket a few shots either side and sort it out later
Love it gotta be one of dem likeys !
paul: you can do me no greater honour smile
Love it Paul: this is the stuff of genious!
paul: At last, somebody acknowledges my supremacy BWAHAAAHAAAHA

This looks like a landscape from Discworld! I almost expect to fall off the edge and meet one of those elephants. Very striking image.
