Not the most interesting of dronies tbh. My M2P didnt fly too far away, need to check settings as it couldve been so much better.

St Mary’s, East Leake


#162

No frost though…


#163

‘Hyperboloid-shaped cooling tower on a frosty or snowy day’

Oh FGS!!! Too busy thinking ‘Cooling towers with steam’ and headed out the door :confused:

Mind u there was bit of frost just behind one of them cooling towers just where the sun couldn’t reach!!! :wink::grin: Honest


#164

Lol. Sorry, couldn’t resist. I’m not too far from Didcot so I’m just waiting for frosty to visit.


#165

Love the light on chimneys @sunstone


#166

We could be waiting awhile. It’s been so mild for this time of year, may as well be a Spring challenge! :grin:


#167

Thanks @BrianB .:blush: Had to wait a few mins for the sun to reveal itself on that one. :+1:


#168

A bit of editing and there’s quite a bit of detail in those shadows that can be brought out.


#169

I’ll have another look at it. I rather hastily uploaded it. Seemingly lots of noise in the darker areas put me off bringing the darker sections out.

Shall have another play. :+1: Thanks for the advice.


#170

It can’t be pushed loads … but enough to not make the noise noticeable does improve it a tad, I think.

If you also have the RAW … that might handle more manipulation.

I only applied a tad of “lighten shadows” in that version.


#171

Confirmed :+1:t2:

But alas…

Sorry!

Confirmed :+1:t2:

I’m guessing that was your ‘Church’ entry?

If so… entry confirmed!

If not… could everyone please let us know which treasure item you are claiming :blush:

So!

Leaderboard updated :+1:t2:

This evenings updates sees @sunstone confirm his 4th place and knock @DTH down in to 5th. We also see @Slim jump up to joint 6th place alongside @SpininB :smiley:

Which in turn then knocks @leeheyes and @TassyWass down in to joint 8th place :scream:
