[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
New Tavern Fort Gravesend, situated between Fort Gardens and the promenade.

Image was taken on a particularly dull and overcast day perfect conditions for testing out the latest version of my new HDR software.

7 bracketed shots were taken in RAW format from a rigid tripod, with a Cokin 120 light grey graduated filter used to tone down the sky.

Back at the laptop, the images were increased slightly in contrast and converted into 7 jpeg files using Nikon View NX2. Photomatix Pro 4.1 was used to combine and tone-map the images into one final jpeg, before Photoshop Elements was used for conversion into black and white, and ultimately sepia.

Contrary to what this web page is reporting, the focal length was in actual fact 15mm on DX (22mm on FX/35mm equivalent).

Hi Rob.

Impressive tones, the detail and textures are of high calibor, your techique does you proud. I may have straightened slightly as the far right stacks lean. Perfect positioning for this though, an aged feel. tfs

stv ;o))
