Old Mill, New Mills, Highlux Photography

Torr Vale Mill, New Mills, Derbyshire. Derelict cotton mill first built in the late 1780s. I’ve walked past this old mill a few times now on my way to go climbing and figured it might make a good candidate for an HDR image. After a drizzly day’s climbing on Monday I set up a tripod and snapped 3 exposures each at 2 stops difference. Merged in Photomatix and touched up in Photoshop.


  • Congratulations on one of the few really good examples of HDR. It’s also an excellent photo in its own right — great composition and a wonderful perspective.

  • Very nice, have you been inside?? Have been playing around with HDR a bit myself (tonga sunsets) forgot about the slowly moving boats tho 🙂 Have got me inspired to try again. Great work, can’t wait to see shots of China.

      Thanks for the comments. Would love to look inside that place but it would have to be a covert mission I think! Planning to take more shots there anyhow. Yeah – HDR is def better with static things ; )
      Looking forward to seeing your results Ree!
