    UPDATE: Made it on to Explore #4 on 28th April 2012 - Thanks to all who viewed, commented and faved. It means a lot. :-)

    I have been wanting to get out and shhot some Bluebells this weekend but unfortunately the weather is just not playing ball here; very wet and generally miserable. So with the rain driving against my window I sit and work on images from my recent trip to Cornwall. This was taken on my arrival in Cornwall. Sadly, similar to today the weather was really poor; windy and rainy. I did manage to get a couple of images, but sadly it was only after that I discovered a few 'school boy errors', not least the ISO had been set at 400 and no NR was set making for very noisy images. Even with NR software this image has still had the hot pixels removed with the aid of the retouch brush. It sometimes takes a while to get 'into the zone' when out shooting. :-)

      Interesting subject and nice processing, Paul! I've done the 'settings' thing a number of times, pretty frustrating when it should be second nature to check the camera before shooting!
