A steamy evening at Didcot

Saturday evening was spent with the TLE team at Didcot... using a few smoke generators and re-enactors to present suitably period scenes.

'Specially that last one - something about the warmth of the light. Nice.

Those are really good - is there a bit of HDR?

Thank you all for your comments. There were moments when it did feel that we were sitting looking at a real life David Shepherd scene. I don't "do" HDR usually... although I can produce such images to extend the dynamic range when combining bracketed shots, but I wont work that way from a single shot. These are all based on single images that have been adjusted in lightroom and photoshop with the benefit of certain Nik plugins added in separate layers. I see the photograph as the beginning and not the end to creating an image, and this evening provided plenty of opportunities to experiment.
The one exception to the single image aspect is that of the first image where I had to import a section from a darker version to remove the highlight blow-out from around the ceiling light; it required a bit of work but I thought the end result worth the effort.

Thanks
