Turf Drying Shed II

Turf Drying Shed II

This is a long partially collapsed structure with an iron or steel sheeted roof.Here the Turf was laid out for drying.You can still see the wires that run back and forth along the whole length of the shed. As far as I know the turf wasn’t used for fuel like in Ireland but may have been used for roofing and the like. I’ll have to find more .
This shot was taken using the built-in flash on the D800. Keen eyes will notice the lens shadow from the 16.35 mm I was using at the time.

That’s  appropriately what this filter effect in HDR Efex pro is called.I first converted to B&W and did a sweep with the history brush in PS CC before firing up HDR Efex pro

One that got away from the series I did last year. This time I used HDR effects pro (Pre-Google). and a little PS. This is what happens when I push the sliders around to see what happens

A little departure from my usual style. A straight shot. I have just cropped a bit on the right hand side. added a frame and smart sharpened in PS CC. No colour adjustments no selective colouring and no black and white conversion.I loved this shot as it was. Why mess with it.
