Default Anderton Boat Lift

The Anderton Boat Lift as seen from the visitors' centre. Stitched from several shots using Hugin, I've been using the a580's DRO function to capture a wider dynamic range in a single JPeG which then makes it easier to do the HDR from a single shot instead of merging exposures.

The boat lift takes boats from the upper level (Trent & Mersey canal) on the far right down to the River Weaver (exiting far left) by means of two hydraulic containers, each of which can hold two longboats or a small barge. The factory on the far bank is a salt works which processed salt transported by barge from downstream.

Great series of photos, Martin!

I love the natural feel of both photos, beautifullly balanced.

The boat lift is an impressive subject for the photo.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul

Very Nice Martin. I agree with Paul, both shots look very natural.
