    Default Disused Railway Line Between Bowburn & Sherburn House, Durham


    Here are some shots of the old lines that can be accessed quite easily from various tracks around the area
    I make no apologies for the HDRs, I know it's not everyones cup of tea but it's something I dabble with now and again

    Yeah I like this too. I spend a lot of time on disused railway lines.

    The HDR thing seems to be about detracting in some way from the way a site actually looks. I think it's more about what's in the photograph than how you've altered it to your tastes. I agree with what most people on here say about HDR in exploration photos, it's ok in small doses.

    If you're more interested in how your photo looks than exploring the site, then you've probably crossed the line. This looks like subtle HDR to me and the content was interesting too so thumbs up. :)

    HDR (High Dynamic Range) is basically taking 3 photos (1 normal exposure, 1 over exposed and 1 under exposed then merging the pics in software like Photomatix Pro. The look of the photos is a result of tone-mapping which can give different looks ranging from subtle to completely outlandish :0)
