photoblog image Returning The Empties Revisited

Returning The Empties Revisited

The second ever image I posted on Shutterchance on 30th.December, 2007 was this http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Returning_the_Empties_/ a B&W image which has done me quite well in my Camera Club since then.

This is my first attempt at HDR using the "freebie" program Qtpfsgui that I used on Thursday's posting and I find it quite interesting just how many "hidden" colours it seems to have picked up in the original colour image.

Have a good weekend, one more "twiddle" tomorrow and on Monday I will return to my "Monochrome Mania" series for a few more weeks.

This is a very fine picture Brian: the loco is one of those 0-8-0s I believe - a Super D. I remember them in service: occasionally I see an example on the WSR when one visits for special weekends
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chris it is a Super D, number 49395 and it was at Loughborough GCR for the gala in January, 2007. I dont think we had these in my part of the country when I was a lad.

I liked the B/W image but the colours in this seem to add sum punch, hope I got that out alright
Brian Walbey: Just right zed, I was surprised just what colours have come out in this myself.
Nice twiddle Brian. I have been having a bit of a play with Qtpfsgui since I saw you picture yesterday.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I have also tried another freebie HDR programme called FDR Tools, you might like to try that one as wel knowing how you like to exeperiment.
I am always amazed at the detail that HDR can bring out, even on the mostunassuming images. Haven't heard of this programme, muts have a look at it sometime. The detail in the wagons is brought out very well, and the overal;l image looks fine to me.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, I was really surprised just how much colour and detail came out in this. I have also tried PhotoMatix but if you don't buy it it leaves a watermark, or three, on the image.
Very nice colouring Brian. Well done!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, and I enjoyed the "messing about" bit as well.
You've done very well with this Brian. Boy I love those old railway trucks ... they had so much more character than present day ones. Is this at Loughborough? ... I can't be very certain. richard
Brian Walbey: This is Loughborough in January, 2007 Richard, taken looking over the road bridge outside the station. Thanks for your comment.
that looks fabulous Brian well donesmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Tim.

A cracking image, Brian., much preferable to the monochrome (and that was good!). This has a lovely painting feeling.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I really didn't know what to expect, this was the first image I put through this software.

There's almost a watercolour feel to this picture, I'm not sure I'd have guessed it was HDR
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie,I was quite pleased with how it came out, perhaps I will do a print of it.

Very interesting effect, like an illustration in a book! Good idea to re-think old pictures, I should do it as well since I have no camera at the moment...
Brian Walbey: Sorry you have no camera Monika, no excuse not to play at the keyboard with your stock of files though.
I'm not a great fan of HDR, but this has a nice children's story-book feeling about it. It must be those colours!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ian, the colours have come out a bit larger than life I feel.
Brian this is a superB picture
Must try myself to create a HDR picture
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Michel, I was surprised how this came out.
