Sun shack

The weekend I spent visiting a few castles didn’t feel like an overly productive one when it came to photography (or anything else, really), but while I was processing the images I found that I had plenty of them that I could use, which is great for a short weekend trip. If I go out anywhere and get a few images I’m delighted, so to get enough images for a couple of weeks is just wonderful.

This shot was taken beside a lake in the grounds of Hever Castle. I took it while the sun was shining brightly from the left hand side of the scene, and though I tried to place the camera lens as best as I could in the shade of a thin tree I still had quite a bit of flare coming in.

So I decided to play on that during the processing and make it even more prominent with the help of a rendered lens flare. I feel it worked reasonably well, and it certainly cleaned up the flares that were working their way into the image.
