New photos from my 2011 UK road trip are now being added daily to my Istock portfolio. I’ll publish a special lightbox with all of them when 20 or so are live in the search engine. In the meantime, here’s a brand new one, shot in LLanrwst (I know it looks vowel-deprived, but the w is actually an “ou” sound) on a clear morning. I did it in HDR because of the strong back lighting provided by the early sun and also because I thought the intense color would pop out best given that treatment. I worked it in Photoshop, and there was a lot of tweaking to achieve a borderline realistic feel to the finished shot.
