Great pics Val ..... I like the first 4, especially no. 1 :thumbup: What shutter speed? About ¼ sec? :think:

I'm going to have to move to the W Cape... all we have here are Mine Dumps & run-off Sludge... don't think a pic of this would improve my day at all.

Nice shots, Val! :thumbup:

Thanks, was playing around with some HDR. Some of the shots, I took 3 shots at different exposures, -1, on meter, +1, and then merged them. The others, I took one shot and then in photoshop I created different exposures for the shot, -1, as shot, +1 and then merged them, to get the detail in the different exposures...

So...... I went to my favourite place to unwind and get some perspective, on a very wind swept Cape day, and then spent a bit of time playing around with some of the images..

No.. but anyone is welcome to join when I go out to take photo's and I can help if they need it.. but think King Williams town is a bit far for you to join when I go out.. And the photoshop part is just a lot of time behind a computer, trying different manipulations..
