Beachy Head if I had shot it on wetplates

Note that this is just post processed. I downloaded the demo version of Google Nik Collection (the Nik Software plugins after Google acquired them) and thought that I would use it to play around in Silver Efex Pro, but instead I found myself captivated by the wetplates filters in Analog Efex Pro. Not very cool of course, but I have always liked the results of the wetplates, the collodion process, and would really like to give it a try.
As I happened to have bracketed these images, I enfused the three images, not to improve on the dynamic range, but to smoothen the sea to give the suggestion of a long exposure.

For the inside information about these shots, follow me on my blog at monochrome.me.uk.

You are shooting digital now, but deep down, maybe even unbeknown to you, you want to try film and find out why so many happy people are still using it. If so, once you are ready to take the next step to being a happy photographer, visit my page dedicated to film photography here.
