This image was taken early in the shoot when there was still light in the sky. I was thinking of discarding this shot as I could not get the position I wanted (without a boat or a waterproof housing for the camera) but when I was looking through the RAW files something kept dragging me back to it.
As a point of interest the barge moored up on the left is lived on as a several of the boats along this stretch and just out of sight is the pub where Gustav Holst wrote “The Planets“, the area I was shooting from was in fact a busy dock before WWII but was redeveloped into a park after being bombed.
This image is comprised of a 5 shot HDR with the initial RAW files ranging from +1EV to -3EV.
The files were then Tonemapped in Photomatix and exported to Photoshop.
Once in Photoshop a few layers were made to adjust the sky and river independently and some selective dodging and burning made.
Let me know what you think, should I have binned this one?
