Old Mausoleum


These were taken in Blackhill cemetary tonight on our camera clubs Mondayphotographic jaunt. There was only four of us turned up on a very miserable evening. The clouds had just started to break a little and the light started to get better as we got there. We just thought we'd try some moody shots tonight. (The first image is 7 bracketed images merged together in Photomatix).

The first picture is different, what kind of lenses did you used? I like it.

Excellent! All three photographs are very dramatic. It is as if each have an individual story to tell. On the first photograph, did you use a filter?

Thanks for your comments. The first image has been bracketed 7 different exposures put together to give a dramatic feel. (something i've just learned how to do. I used my 11-22mm wide angle lens with a polorising filter.

Carole all great images but that first one is way cool, nice job!! What do you mean by bracketing, is it like stacking?

Carole said...

I think it might be. it's the same image taken at different exposures that's all (so many stops one after the other)

Very nice Carol! I like the HD too in the first pic and for the best I like the 2nd one, the little birdy in the stucco.
