Still in Glendalough, the ridge of trees going from the middle of the shot to the right side makes a nice sight in the afternoon light.
Back to Glendalough, Co. Wicklow for another series of images. This time I felt much more comfortable with my 30D than on my last visit in May 2007.
This photo took a bit of work to get it looking right, the light on the day was a little harsh & becuase of the high ground on either side of the valley it was a lot brighter on the right side of the image. I don’t see the point in bringing up the details on the left too much anyway, and at least that nice hazy light on that side is still visible.
Anyway, I really do have an aversion to HDR, I guess it’s becuase of the amount of fake looking images that result from the process, but in this case I was happy with the final file. It’s merged from two version of the same RAW file, one correctly exposed & the other over-exposed by half a stop.
As for the location itself, well on a sunny day it’s hard to be anything but inspired by this place.
But I really should get there early some day for a morning shoot…
People’s Photography came around again a couple of weeks ago. This year I decided to be a little more organised, so I printed most of my stuff at 7 X 5 inches & mounted them.
There was a rumour going around that People’s Photography might not happen next year. This would be a shame, OK so it’s not as if the exhibitors are making a load of money out of it, but it is good fun & an enjoyable weekend.
Trying to be experimental for a change. There’s nothing particularly ground breaking about this, it’s just a long exposure (well, 3 seconds) with me moving the camera around while the shutter stays open. Something different (for a change).
Spotted this at Dundrum LUAS station & thought it was amusing…
