I believe I have blogged about this place before. In fact I know I have, you can read the previous blog post here: http://blog.shooterz.co.uk/2011/12/scotney-castle.html I visited Scotney Castle again and had my camera with me. It’s interesting that I automatically seem to go for the HDR shots when I go to this place. For some reason I can see straight away that I want to capture a wider ranged image than possible with a straight photo and I love the colours that I can get with the HDR processing.
This was default processing in the software that I use without any other tinkering but I loved the way the blues came out so didn’t play with the photos any further. Here’s a better look at the newer house on the top of the hill: You may not like this look of these photo’s, they aren’t as natural looking as my usual style of photography but I still like them (I wouldn’t show them to you if I didn’t like them would I !). This was February 2013 and what a great day! It was the first day that made you think that the wet winter might finally be behind us. You can see we were blessed with great weather. I sat and had my lunch in my t-shirt and soaked up the view below: One last photo of the blue skies, the great reflections and the wonderful old castle sitting on the moat. Tell me if you like this style of photos or prefer the more natural look ?
