Lerwick HDR   19 comments

Made it home again in one piece, landed at Scatsa in the Shetlands via helicopter only to hear on the news that one had crashed in London killing two people, not good to hear at any time.

Rig move went well, a few problems with one anchor which added a couple of days onto the job, but other than that smooth sailing.

Below is a couple of shots I took while in Lewick waiting on weather, I just downloaded the trial version of Nik’s HDR Efex Pro 2 and though I would try it out on a couple, these shots were taken around 4 o’clock on a wet overcast day so I’m hoping the HDR will brighten them up a bit.

This one of a single small boat caught my eye because I just liked the colours of the thing, behind in the water reflection is the Shetland Museum, I didn’t have chance to visit but it looked pretty cool through the window.

Small Boat



And one of the harbour, this is 7 shots merged together, it’s early days with the software but I’ll keep trying, unless you lot think I should just give up now.

Harbour Lights


Be warned more HDR tomorrow.

  1. No…don’t give up. These are terrific, you’ve done a great job with them.

  2. Look at the curves on that boat. A lot of skill, experience and artistry in that beauty. Thanks for sharing. (I don’t see any joins on the other shot…. 🙂

  3. I just tried to leave a comment but it didn’t seem to work. Sorry if this appears twice. I love what you’ve done here, the colours are very nice and I particularly like the shot of the wee boat. If you get the chance, that museum is well worth a visit. It’s free to get in, nicely laid out and there’s a tearoom upstairs.

  4. I like the color enhancement if you will. It specifically shows the movement or non- movement of the water and where it changes. In the first one it almost looks like the little boat is sitting on a flat floor, which it couldn’t do without leaning on it’s side. How neat. Thanks.

  5. Was the second picture of the harbor handheld? The various shots seem to be pretty well registered and co-added.

  6. Nice work – the single boat photo is very sweet.

  7. Terrific shots Mark! Keep it up! Don’t give up! 🙂

  8. Don’t you dare give up! They are both beautiful shots (love, love, love the rowboat and reflections). The 7 merge is beautiful. What colors. I use Nik products on all my photos. Color Efex Pro 4 is part of my process. I have used the Nik HDR many times and love it. If you get a chance, check out their online free video tutorials. You learn so much from them!

  9. That first shot is superb – the boat almost appears to be suspended above the background. Excellent processing, Mark.
