Durham by Valentin-Stanciu Durham by Valentin-Stanciu
A calming landscape I enjoyed so much. It's taken a while ago, but only now have I decided to share this secret place. One can stay here and just get lost in dreams.

Durham is a city in the North East of England.
Yes, this is IN the city!

YAY! Someone knows my city exists!
No, I'm kidding. Really though, the shot is awesome. Is it bad that I could tell you exactly where you were standing? Meh, oh well.
You wuldn't be able to take this shot now though... The bridge is all covered in scaffolding and stuff. (Finally...)
Random question! What's HDR
Again, awesome! ^^

Oh wow. Who knew Durham could be so so beautiful? It looks like a rural town or a hidden away river rather than being related to that bustling city centre. Amazing and beautiful photography on your part. A wonderful testament to your talents.

I think every town has a beautiful corner hidden away somewhere, it just matters from what angle you look at it. ;)
Thanks for the kind words! :D

Nice HDR!!

But the landscape himself could be better.
I think there's to much vegetation on the right side of the picture.

I could have composed the picture better maybe. But I was there with a friend having fun and didn't took too much time with photography. :)

All around.. it's just hidden by the trees. :D
To the right there was a big cathedral if I remember correctly, somewhat behind me was a university campus, etc.

The HDR is not only beautifully executed, but the water has an amazing gradual texture to it. Nice job! :D

I think the wind is responsible for the texture. ;)

:o So you put this together from three separate images? Nice work :o


But I would love to live on a river like this... and I would hate to live on a river like this, lol.

Yup. You can search for HDR or "HDR toning" and you'll find plenty of information on the subject. Most people overdo it, I tried to keep it real.

Well, remember, this picture was taken from somewhere in the middle of a city. :)
I'd love to live on a river like this, but in a city with adequate protection against floods.

Looking at the photo, it really doesn't look much like this scenic spot is in a city, but... That's the United States for you (-_-; )

I think it was more of a utility house. Don't think anyone lives there, just "works" there. :)
