On this week, I only went out to take photos on one occasion, and on that occasion I took 45 photos, and I was way odd that afternoon, most were very underexposed. It wasn’t that I wasn’t feeling in the mood, I was fairly enthusiastic, I was enjoying the fresh air, the brief walk, and the scenery, but I never once looked down at the screen to check my photos, no chimping.
I was fairly disappointed but one of them had to work 🙂 I chose one that appealed to me in a general sense and felt that it would work well in monochrome, after playing with the processing for a while I found I wasn’t getting what I felt the scene needed, so I took the file into Nik’s HDR Efex to try a single image BW tone-mapping, and amazingly got what I thought was a good final processed image. I would never consider this a true HDR, since I only used one image, but the tone-mapping of the HDR software helped bring out the details that I wanted in this image.

The seawall has to be the best contribution to photographers that is available on the coast 🙂 I can’t think of any time I have gone for a walk on the seawall that I haven’t come back with at least one shot I am happy with.
I think I have to agree with you there… It’s a stretch of coast that’s ripe with opportunities 🙂 I may come away not using any from a walk, but there’s usually something there that is good enough to use, but if I used all the ones I wanted it would be a boring group of photos, all coastland 🙂
