Beamish village in wide-angle

A wide angle picture of the village in the Beamish museum

I’ve added a few pictures from our recent holiday in the North East of England, some of which were taken at the Beamish Museum. This is another in that series, this one being taken in the village with my Tamron 10-24mm super wide angle set to it’s 10mm extreme. I really liked the way the tram lines matched the power cables to draw the eyes into the distance.

There were a lot of people at Beamish when we visited, and there was also a re-enactment of 1914 recruitment for the first world war going on, hence the soldiers shown in the picture.

I did a fair amount of post processing to this shot including shadow enhancement, boost to the clarity and a graduated filter to bring out detail in the sky, but hopefully I haven’t gone too far.
