I visited Aldeburgh (Suffolk) on new year's eve. I was lucky that conditions were right to capture this inspiring (to me) shot.

excellent work! I like the oily effect you gave to the picture. May I ask you what kind of tweaks did you make with photoshop?

Love it! Compliments!

Greetings and happy new year, La Mugna

Thanks and Happy New Year to both of you!!

@cugino: Most of what you see is the result of a mono conversion of an HDR processed colour image.

There was a lot of noise in the sky and I did a lot of blurring of small areas by hand, after noise reduction to give a surreal look to the sky (I think that is what you mean by 'oily').

絵作りの面白さに圧倒されます。他の写真もそうですが、光と影の捕らえ方が素晴らしいと思います。あなたのギャラリーはとてもとても素晴らしいです。私はあなたのギャラリーを見つけることができてとても嬉しいです。ひとつひとつの写真にコメントをつけることは難しいですが、時間をかけてゆっくり鑑賞させてもらおうと思います。 / Like & Favorite & Favorite Photographer

Will be overwhelmed by the interest of image. But so are other pictures, better sound great capture of light and shadow. Your gallery is really great. I'm very glad to be able to find your gallery. Add a comment to every single picture is difficult, let me think over time will appreciate slowly. / Google Translate
