    …a good looking “natural” HDR Peter

    HDR as it is supposed to be – undetectable.

  • I agree and thanks for the comment Odille. I suppose there are times when it should be very obvious hdr but ONLY when you are after a special effect.

    Fabulous looking HDR with fine details……the jail still looks to be in a good nick so why was it decommissioned ? :)

  • Thanks Hans. It got replaced by the remand centre at LatRobe St and by Pentridge. The National Trust did a good job of preserving it. Pity they didn’t keep Pentridge too.

    Excellent picture Peter. When did you get out? lol

  • Thanks david. About 40 minutes after we all got arrested in the watchhouse next door. A very short period in there was enough :-)
