York Boer War memorial in HDR

It's my 3rd visit to York in successive years and I can't believe I've only just spotted this huge monument to York's fallen in the Boer War. It's in a tree covered garden, in the shadow of York Minster and is architecturally a world away from most of the much simpler memorials you see commemorating the dead of the 'Great War' onwards, in towns and cities of the UK.

The lighting was way too contrasty to capture using a single exposure, so I manipulated the RAW file, created 4 files with differing exposures and combined them using an HDR program. The resultant image is a little surreal, but you get to see the detail that you can't capture any other way.

Nice pic John.I think you got a thing about York.

Anyway I got a new post for you.

Read and enjoy.
