Edingurgh Buildings, King Street, South Shields

Edinburgh Buildings

Photo shop – get it?

The Edinburgh Buildings are on the corner of King Street, South Shields and include a photo processing shop on the ground floor where you can take your cd-rom, memory card, usb stick etc. to have your photos printed, ideal for a bit of heavy photo processing I thought, so off I went and got to work on it.

This image originally came from three separate ,jpg files (bracketed at two stop intervals) and they were processed as an HDR (High Dynamic Range) in Photomatix, before the result was sent to Photoshop to have a few extra layers and a mask added, to finish it off I flattened the image and did a bit of dodging and burning in the sky. Cool, I thought – Photo-shop!

What do you think?

Having made one or two HDRs now I’m almost hooked, so I’ll be featuring a few of them shortly in South  Shields Daily Pictures where you can catch up with my latest work.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/125 second, f8, iso 200

  1. The texture is what really draws my eye around the photo.

  2. Nicely done! And yes, HDR is addictive.

  3. I like this very much – very suitable to the subject – on the whole though I do think HDR can be overdone and wouldn’t like to see every photo given this treatment.

  4. think it’s too complicated for me! ^-^
    but i do like what you’ve done to it…looks like a canvass that you’ve painted or something.
    very captivating!

  5. Gives it the feeling of an illustration while retaining the detail. Very nice.

  6. Looks more like a drawing, than a photo. I’ve become a fan of Poladroid; turning photos into mock Polaroids.
