Welcome to my blog where I intent to witter on about how I process selected photos.
Feel free to leave now :)

Anyone who's tried Image Averaging knows that once you've flattened your layers, you're left with a pile of "unneeded" images left over once you've created your final IA. I've been thinking about how else these could be used. There is the single frame for a short exposure version of your image, but why limit yourself to these two options. You can select any number from your set, as long as they are sequential, to create a exposure time equivalent of anything from the shutter speed of a single frame right they way up to the total long exposure equivalent you get from image averaging all the frames. This in effect allows you to choose the exposure time once you get back to base.
So in terms of creative photography, I thought about taking this one step further and blending these exposure times into a single image. In the example I want to present here I'll be blending a long exposure sea with long, medium and fast exposure sky.
