    A couple of days ago I was a little downbeat with what I was producing. But tonight the sky was a lot more interesting and I got to play with photomatrix some more. I can feel another purchase coming on in order to get rid of the water marks :wink:

    This is Knowlton Church, a Norman ruin built inside a neolithic henge - very unusual.

    The best part is it's only 10 minutes down the road from me and 'kinda' on the way home from work. The downside is telegraph poles in the direction of the sunset. So I'll either have to learn some photoshop skills or get up early for a sunrise shot :wink:

    BTW, are my images too wide for most peoples screens? I'm having to scroll right :grumpy: but if most people are viewing at a higher screen resolution I'll leave it as it is.

    That's a pretty cool shot. I'm really enjoying the sky.

    The telegraph poles shouldn't be too difficult to edit out. If you don't mind, I'll take a crack at it. :)

    What's really nice about Photomatrix is you never really know what to expect until it finishes it's magic. The sky was nice tonight but when I saw the finished HDR I could not believe how good it looked.
    You're welcome to have a go on the poles, but one day I must sit down and learn how to photoshop properly ;)

    Thanks. The glow seems appropriate for this ruin.

    As to your question on the width of your photos, flyingseale ... yes. At 1024 pixels wide they are too wide for many a screen. It has shown that 800 pixels wide (or up, if it is a vertical frame) is a very good size for web-presentation.

    When I see your photo here, I feel I must still work on my tone-mapping "knowledge" (ha-ha. "Knowledge" is the exaggeration of the year!). PLUS I need a better tripod!!!!!!! I'll show in the why in our "Bloopers"-forum...

    That is a stunningly beautiful shot and as for the telegraph poles... I would not have noticed them had you not mentioned them :) Seriously, they are marginalized by the rest of the picture.

    Voila! I had to crop off the border to remove the pole and wires the way I was removing them, but I think it turned out pretty good. :)

    Nice clean up. Which tools did you use?
