I met up with Trevor Kersley on a rather wet and grey morning and we visited one of my favourite locations Fleetwood Marsh on the tidal River Wyre close to the town of Fleetwood Lancashire to go shoot ‘The Wrecks of Fleetwood Marsh’.

Three shot HDR, hand held, of a wood hull possibly being the remains of Girl Lilian (no certain confirmation).

Nikon D5000 Sigma 10mm-20mm @ 10mm. f4 1/80 e/v +-2.

Imported into photomatix for HDR, into lightroom where b&w applied together with sharpening, b&w and curve adjustments. Back to photomatix painterly applied.

    Brilliant composition with the trusty 10-20 in overdrive. Everything’s coming together here beautifully with the foreground texture and light showing us the detail in the bones of this old ship and leading our eye to the horizon. While not a great fan of HDR I think in BW this works brilliantly, look out for a sack load of features John. Mal

  • Wow thanks Mal for your detailed critique of my work. I have to say that the 10-20 has really become my ‘stock’ lens. I cannot praise it enough, pin sharp, responsive… the works. The strange bit is I have ‘worked’ this image time and time again and did not like it but sat here and tried it once more and am glad I did.

    What did I say! ;0). I had the 10-20 and thought it a brilliant lens, unfortunately it’s not a full frame lens and won’t work with my Canon 5D ;0( Mal

  • Lol Mal! Such a shame about not working with the full frame camera.

    This is an awesome HDR! Love the minimum of color and softness of the texture. You’re good! :)

  • Wow thanks Lina coming from someone who’s HDR I drool over I’m flattered.

    I would have loved to try and shoot this at a low point… That cracked ground is fantastic!

  • That cracked ground was sticky and slippery as hell! But it does certainly lead nicely to the wreck of the boat.

    The cracked earth and the struts of the boat brings to mind the backbone of a giant dinosaur – fabulous capture, John !!

  • Thanks Mattie, Yhun commented on them in the other shot I have from a similar angle.

    Oh stop it! You know I don’t think that of my work at all!!
    Oh hey! Got an e-mail from the guy who purchased 4feetx6feet shot of mine and he said it looked amazing! What a relief that was! Thought I’d share :)

  • Lina that is awesome about the large shot. Get that on a journal and share the good news!!! Wow I’d love to see it blown right up like that!
