House in Ashwell

This image is a HDR image of a house I saw in Ashwell, Hertfordshire, UK. I could happily live in a house like this!

The Tower of London

Here is the well known Tower of London.

This shot is a mild HDR image from a single JPG file.

A Pub in Ashwell

This HDR photo (from a single RAW file) was taken of a lovely pub we came across in the Hertfordshire town of Ashwell. With the phone box, letterbox and residual snow, it made for an interesting view.

Victoria & Albert Museum

We visited this museum while in London, albeit briefly. It's an amazing building, and the displays inside are outstanding! A few examples below.

London Highlight - Thames Barrier

Having been to London numerous times, I have never had the chance to go and see the Thames Barrier. Thanks to my aunt, I got to see it on my recent trip! The Barrier was created between 1974 and 1982 in a bid to stop London from flooding with rising tidewaters. It's an amazing feat of engineering, and I think is rather pleasing aesthetically.

The shot below is HDR, actually processed from a single RAW file.

London Highlight - Greenwich Observatory

I was recently on holiday in London, England. I'll post my better shots here over the next week or so.

To get the ball rolling, here's a shot of the main Royal Greenwich Observatory building. This is a HDR shot, but from a single RAW file. I didn't push things too much as I wanted to maintain realism, yet exaggerate some of the yellows brought out by the sunlight.
