After having a fairly unsuccessful outing a few evenings ago, one photo from which I posted here, I wondered whether a sunset at Ham Hill might be worth a try. The sun was at least shining, which has been a bit of a novelty this spring. I was in a bit of a hurry, so didn’t use a tripod, a common mistake for me. I had a go at a three exposure HDR image without a tripod anyway. I wasn’t happy with any of the colour images in the end, and accidentally viewed a mono option from the Photomatix Pro presets. As I thought it was better than any of the colour options that I could produce, I saved it anyway and here it is.
Am I daft to shoot a sunset as a monochrome image? Probably!
