I've had some time on my hands over the last couple of weeks while I've been recovering from an operation on my knee. That's given me the opportunity to revisit a number of photographs that I took towards the end of last year at Fountains Abbey in North Yorkshire. I had initially processed the images from that day using HDR techniques. This gave me one or two that I really liked, but the others just didn't quite hit the mark for me. I've therefore gone back to these images and re-processed them, but this time using exposure blending techniques, utilising gradient masks and other such things.

I would appreciate your comments and feedback on the images below.

#1 Shot from inside what was the main dining area looking out across some of the ruins. This is an exposure blend of 3 images.

#2 The main ruins of Fountain Abbey. This is a combination of two images using a gradient mask.

#3 A shot from the water gardens of Studley Royal which is in the grounds of the abbey. This is also a combination of two images using a gradient mask.

#4 Another shot from the water gardens, and again a combination of two images using a gradient mask.

Any comments or feedback would be most welcome.

Nice work.

Thanks Nigel. Fountains Abbey is definately worth a visit as there is very wide and varied number of things to photograph. It is however very popular in the spring and summer months which can make getting clear shots difficult.

I need to keep practising with the PP. First time I have done it was with these images, so I am sure there's more to learn and refine.

Cheers,

Simon.

How do you do this gradient mask thing? I suck at combining multiple exposures to make one image

Well we are all different in our likes and dislikes. My pick is the first picture. I do like the waterfall shot, but the cotton wool look of the water at the bottom put me off, for it to be my best picture, in fact the second would be my second selection.
How long before racing in in full swing again.
