An experimental processing of a shot taken with the Moto g50. I thought it would be interesting to create a set of exposures from the original and then combine them to make a pseudo HDR shot. Here’s what I got: –

Colour…

Dusk on Long Lane_HDR

Black & White…

Dusk on Long Lane_HDR_B&W

and Sepia…

Dusk on Long Lane_HDR_Sepia

I used a 5-stop spread of post-processing exposures to get this effect. The grain is quite intrusive compared with what I’d expect from a similar piece of processing using a shot from one of my cameras. However, I think the Sepia view is nicely atmospheric 😎

When I wrote my On Borrowed Time post about the South Western Railway Class 455’s back in early February, I noted that there seemed to be no plans to replace the Southern 455’s. It seems that has changed and the rumour mill is now suggesting that they will be phased out in May this year. Southern think that their Class 377 fleet will be able to take up the slack. If that proves to be the case, then a shot of three class 455’s together at East Croydon will indeed soon be history!
