Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 1st June, 2014)
Trencherfield Mill Engine
Nice and vibrant - I like it. Some won't lol!
Beautiful triple expansion ( I think) steam engines. Not many of these around.
Photo looks a sickly green. Not my style of photo just looks has though the colours have run during the development stage
Engineer work maintains it told that the Trencherfield Mill Engine made the fist electricity in Wigan
Here is a video of the Mill Engine
Superimposed, the word peterp. You can't beat a straight forward photo shot. What you see is what you get. After saying that, a beautiful engine.
David what does HDR stand for.
Nothing to get too steamed up about!
Ann21, HDR is short for High Dynamic Range. Multiple shots taken at different exposures are combined in to one. My photo above consists of three shots, one taken at the correct exposure, one that was underexposed and one that was overexposed. Using software I merged the three shots together to create the "vibrant" effect :)
David you wasted your time
Well done David, worth the effort...I love the results!
Whether you like it or not, the HDR technique has a USEFUL attribute. It enables one to see clearly in a single image all the details of the engine. A single shot will inevitably leave some parts underexposed and dark, and others too bright and washed out. This is an excellent image for steam nuts like me who want to see all the twiddly bits. Thanks, David.
I used to work at Trench when I left school in 1965. It was dreary and dim in the card-room.
