Not been out to take photos for months, but had a crazy mini road trip a couple of nights ago and ended up in Newcastle upon Tyne - I did a 600 mile trip between 8pm and 8am, though wasn't working the following day! Gutted I didn't have my decent tripod with me, so these are all hand held and no filters were used. PP was minimal on all of these - all shot in Raw and jpeg conversion in DPP (+3 sharpness, nothing else), then processed in CS3 as indicated.

1) Gateshead Millenium Bridge, The Sage and The Baltic Flour Mills.
Exif: 40D, 10-22mm @ 15mm, ISO 200, f16, 1/125, taken around 4:40am.
PP: USM, slight increase to the shadows

2) Tyne Bridge, Swing Bridge, High Level Bridge
Eixf: 40D, 10-22mm @ 17mm, ISO 200, f16, 1/25, taken around 4:45am
PP: USM, slight increase to the shadows

3) Angel of the North (Gateshead / Low Fell area)
Exif: 40D, 10-22mm @ 10mm, ISO 400, f16, 1/125, taken around 5:10am
PP: USM, rotated so the feet were horizontal.

4) Angel of the North
Exif: 40D, 10-22mm @ 10mm, ISO 400, f20, 1/250, taken around 5:20am
PP: USM and cloned out a bit of the flare on the Angel's bottom due to it being a distraction.

This was shot intentionally at f20 to get a star shaped sun burst to give the Angel a 'magical' feel to it.

Any C&C appreciated.

Thanks for looking

Nice series. I must visit there soon as it looks like a great place for some inspiration.

Thanks for the comments.

Anke, it is a gorgeous part of the country, the surrounding countryside in Northumberland is beautiful with so many varied different landscapes from the coast over to Hadrians Wall and Keilder, not to mention Newcastle, Durham etc.

^ absolutely. The dales, Kielder, Alnwick, Cragston House, Hadrian's Wall, Newcastle itself, Durham, Jedburgh etc. Plenty of variety.
