Boxgrove Churchyard Snowdrops

Boxgrove Churchyard Snowdrops

Last Tuesday was a brief spell of warm spring weather before the return of winter. I made the most of it with a ride to nearby Boxgrove Priory and Church close to Chichester and the South Downs National Park.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A550 with a Tamron 28-200 zoom at 28mm. One RAW image was opened in Photoshop Camera RAW first to create 2 extra exposures for HDR at 2EV separation. Each image was noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

This picture was enhanced with HDR processing followed by Topaz Adjust and Photoshop to bring in more detail. Processing included masks to enhance the area only of the snowdrops.
