photoblog image The Best Seat in the Fair.

The Best Seat in the Fair.


Pleasureland is slowly disappearing and rubbish left all around. This is where the old wooden roller-coaster used to be. In the distance may be seen Adullah's Dilema, don't know what it was but mow it is empty. The Chair? You just wonder why?

Five exposures from a single RAW image generated in Lightroom then Tone Mapped in Photomatix. Final processing in Photoshop with a Topaz Adjust layer as well. Why? Because I can, I suspect it is a touch over processed but I quite like it and it is a record of what is happening to the fiar.
