(Actually I wasn’t referring to the bridge, though it does look a bit the worse for wear.)

Things are once again manic in the world of SHpics….No time for romance….so certainly no time to shoot new pics!

Luckily there were a bunch of shots taken on my last trip that were still to be uploaded to the hard drive and I’ve spent a while getting them ready to post instead.  These were just standard raw files but I’ve attempted to give them a slightly HDR type of look..(Unfortunately my computer won’t handle true HDR work, its almost as antiquated as I am), but by toning and level adjustment I’ve managed to get an approximation of the crisp, high contrast feel I was trying for.

Its not a look that I think works with many types of image, but for this subject I reckoned it was worth a bash and I’m relatively happy with the results.

Now you must forgive me as I am going to devote the rest of ‘Feb Fourteen’ to fawning at the feet of the Love Goddess, Mrs SHpics.

      Never..Never let it be said that I am in any way predictable…….Oh No!….I live my life on the turn of a card, the spinning of a wheel, the roll of the dice, the crumbling of the cookie….I laugh in the face of predictability..
      Second ones my favourite….
      (and the romance is there….It’s just a bit of a hidden subtext…………)
