I snapped this today ,Devils Bridge ,there is a story behiend the name but I can`t remember it now:?, 1st picautostitched again( I`m so glad I found that program ) its a bit like havin a super wideangle lens.






I wish those burger vans weren`t there in the second shot,and I was stood a few paces to the left.Its only when I upload the pics onto my PC that I can see the whole picture( pardon the pun).I used a circular polariser on all the shots I took today,I`ll have to put some marks on it to learn how far to rotate it for the different effects.

Just say the word and poof! they're gone:



As for the polarizer - where you turn itwill bedifferent for every setup, because its effect depends on the angle and azimuth of the sun in relation to you. Tiffen's site explains it in some detail: http://www.tiffen.com/polarizer_pics.htm

Well, I call it the Devil's Bridge because I left some paint off my modestly-sized camper van on its walls about 20 years ago. It's the only place I've been where the width limit really does mean what it says. The burger vans probably got what they deserved.

Thanks DGehman, BigDawg ,Alan T.I haven`t mastered Photoshop doctoring yet,I start a 10 week photoshop course at my local college next month,I`m really looking forward to it.

Thanks for the link on the polarizer DGehman( and the doctoring):-)

TD

P.S. Alan T, they have put up bollards now to stop people driving across the bridge and ruining their paintwork...20 years too late I think.

That should be quitean adventure.

With 3 books on Corel PhotoPaint (Corel's wannabe Photoshop at $400 less) and one of the best books on digital photography*, REAL photo doctoring still evades me (didn't even know to look for ripples until pfeels pointed them out).

What's clear, even to my dim perceptions, is that you can take a good photo and turn it in something of stunning quality and effect with digital editing.

*Ben Long, Complete Digital Photography, Charles River Media ISBN 1-58450-356-4. This has to be the best computer/digital technology book I've ever seen, both for content and for clarity of explanation.
