    I had another go at HDR today - a technique with which I have had little success so far. I'm fairly pleased with this one:

    I also bought an R72 infrared filter and this is my first go with it. Unfortunately, I didn't see much sun this weekend, so results weren't great. The development where I live:

    The first is fantastic. What settings did you take that on as the sky looks a little blurred like it was on a long exposure?

    Four frames, taken about 2 seconds apart. The clouds were shifting pretty fast across the sky - 'twas windy!

    I like both equally. The first the dome looks stunning and the cloud is so moody. The moody cloud really juxaposes with the calmness of the dome and the surrounding area.

    The second photo looks like a photo of a post nuclear war winter apocalypse kind. Really haunted and eerie I feel.

    Overall both very nice.:)

    You're right - about half a degree out. I've corrected it now (Ctrl-F5)

    As good as the first is I think its just a touch too grey instead of black and white. Also I think it might look better with the dock thing at the bottom right removed. The 2nd is cool too. Looks like a nuclear waste land.

    Thanks for the feedback. How about in colour, cropped as you suggested?

    Problem is that you've now removed the skyscrapers :(

    I think I do prefer the colour one. Not sure about the missing sky scrapers yet :)

    Need to see colour with skyscapers. And I thought the black n white needed more grey turning into black and white. The dome demonstrates this.

    Tough choice!

    Hope you don't mind but I really like the first shot so had a play. Levels and heal/clone tool only.

    I like it - I just couldn't be bothered to stay up last night to play with the clone tool.

    For those that wanted it, the colour version with the Canary Wharf buildings (and the dock) can be seen here.

    I like the color version with skyscrapers the best so much so that I have just set it as my desktop background.

    Great Stuff :D

    I like the first but think it would have been better in B&W given the greyness of the London weather. It's almost summer and it's still gloomy :(
