    This was exported from raw using UFRaw, principally because the camera wouldn't see the same colours that I was looking at. Unfortunately, there's some lens distortion as a result - the E-P1's lens correction wasn't used.

    I was really happy with the sepia-like colour and the texture here. The water, especially.

    Ha, I've never seen 'The Toon' looking so nice, and that is saying something!!! ;)

    Great shot, where was it taken from? Is the Copthorne that side of the river?

    Edit:

    Sorry, me being stupid, that's from the Tyne Bridge, right?

    At first, I thought that was a boat just narrowly passing under a bridge!

    There is some posterization in the upper right.

    Thanks for sharing.

    It is from the Tyne Bridge, yes. WT21, it resembles posterization, but it really isn't! Honestly, it's layers of contrasting clouds, and the rubbish look is an artefact of the image being scaled down. This is a heavily modified (in terms of colour) thumbnail of the same sky, within a few minutes:

    There was some BIG glare, but if you look at the full-sized original of the brown picture (click the image and look for the "Download Image" button to the right) you can see actual texture and information there.
