I discovered a new place - The Gosport Bastion, part of the Old Gosport Line, the defensive walls and fortifications that used to surround the whole of the town. I used a slightly different technique for these HDR's - going to manual mode and taking several exposures instead of the usual three in Auto-Bracketing Mode.
Gosport Bastion Expense Magazine Taken With Fujifilm S5700, Manual, Processed To HDR With Multiple Exposures (Varying Shutter Speeds), F6.8, ISO 64, Focal Length 10.5mm, Tripod
The Gosport Bastion is like a mini fort, all but overgrown and forgotten now, but the council opens it up every day, but I guess most people don't even know it's there. This is a shot of what I think is an Expense Magazine, below the main ramparts. I liked the way it was almost overgrown, and the mystery of how far the entrance goes back...
Gosport Marina Taken With Fujifilm S5700, Manual, Processed To HDR With Multiple Exposures (Varying Shutter Speeds), F13.6, ISO 64, Focal Length 6.3mm, Tripod
I used a really tight Aperture for this one, to make sure the whole of the shot was in focus. It's tough to get a shot of the Spinnaker Tower with any foreground interest, so I tried this angle over the Marina, but although I've checked that it's straight, the image does appear to be leaning over! Converted to B&W in Photoshop. To make the tower stand out I lightened the whole image with a levels adjustment layer, then inverted the mask to hide everything, then painted the extra brightness in.
Red Brick Church Taken With Fujifilm S5700, Manual, Processed To HDR With Multiple Exposures (Varying Shutter Speeds), F13.6, ISO 64, Focal Length 13.6mm, Tripod
This is actually the rear of the Church, I liked the symmetry of the shot, but I set up my tripod at a too low angle and managed to chop the cross off the top of the frame (which I didn't notice at the time!). If you look at the top of the image you can see my rather inept cloning.
So, that was a nice little Photowalk, and I've got the hang of HDR's with more exposures. You have to use a tripod, it just would be very difficult to try and manually change the Shutter Speeds while hand-holding the camera.
