I anyone is ever in the S.wales area this place is well worth a visit if you like anything to do with mining etc, it includes a trip down in the cage underground and a tour of the pit bottom all free of charge

Lovely. The top one's a real treat, Skye. Lovely colours and detail.
 
cheers Grez Im not a massive fan of HDR well saying that I like it but only when its subtle, pain in the neck to do though and a very steep learning curve, im on first rung of the ladder lol
 
Well it's very good. I don't know anything about it TBH - you'll have to teach us all sometime.
 
no good asking me I aint got a clue lol all I know is three diff images at diff exposure throw it into photomatix and sit back and wait lol
 
My mum had a Hoovermatic that she threw things into and waited. Would that be the same sort of thing?
 
#3 is my fave - really tells the story - might be good in B&W?
 
I also got a B&W of this shall upload it later, I usually tend to do more in B&W with mines, they always seems to couple together nicely, also find sepia works well with them giving them a great aged feel, shall pop some of them up too.
 
Nice shots all full of drama & a story told:D
