[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an HDR image of 3 exposures, taken at the pier in Mumbles, near Swansea, Wales.
I visited back in July for a weekend to see if I could capture a nice sunset or sunrise, but it was not to be. It rained for most of the weekend, but I did get a few moody, seascape images.
The rain reached me minutes after taking these images.

Hi, Angela -
Love the moody atmosphere of this image. The pier leads the eye right to the center of the frame. Wonderful exposure from the HDR. The wide angle conveys a sense of the big space. Well done.

Lovely work Angela! You show your versatility here! Nice sharpness, not too over done as HDR can be sometimes. The details in the rocks is just amazing!

Hi Angela,

A very nice comp you have managed the available light very well, the hdr is nicely done the pov is great the colours are very nice indeed and the details very sharp good dof well done.


çok güzel!

Very dramatic shot - great use of the HDR technique to manage the dynamics and levels of this shot, the fact that you managed to recreate the feeling of a glowering, forboding sky is very rewarding - I can almost smell the approaching rain!
Good job

Hi Angela,
I love the detail and colours in the FG rocks - great control of the HDR process
