Both photographs here are 3 image HDR composites. Each is a 1 +/- exposure. I have shot this location before, also on a damp day.
I think the low light and rain coming across the water made these interesting. Poor visibility certainly helped. In the distance is a port for container ships. While interesting I prefer less here.
BTW, I also had to clone out a Gull that photo bombed me in the shot above. Because it was 3 images he had ‘3’ shadowy wings as he charged through.
