 Post subject: A few of my shots
PostPosted: Sat Mar 13, 2010 10:45 pm 
I use a simple bridge cam for now, until I can afford a dslr, but I've been using it in full manual for about a year now, progressing nicely on the steep learning curve of photography. Here's some shots of mine:

My home town cathedral, made to look a little more dramatic with some processing -

Dublin City Customs House

By the Spire, O' Connel street Dublin at night

A little bit of playfulness with longer exposure:

Really looking towards getting a dslr soon, even a cheap used one, so I can do longer exposures and have overall better image Qual. This cam only does as long as 8" with smallest aperture being f/8, and that's only when zoomed in a lot. It deals with macro better but I like night shots too :)

Thanks very much :)

You can see in the custom house one I got some light pollution from the lanterns, tidied up best I could. but that's one of the big problems with my cam, it produces very 'soft' images.

The City shot by the spire was hand held, proud of that one, 1.5 seconds of holding breath and standing dead still in a busy city, getting funny looks from passers by :lol: admittedly it took a few gos to get it right.

Cheers :)

It's been tagged by Dublin tourism on Flickr, I wonder do they plan to use it for anything? [with my permission of course] I allowed the tag to stay anyhow, but thought it a little strange that they did that.

I entered it into a competition on their page along with a few others. Maybe it's short listed? Ah, sure we can only hope :)

You have taken some really great shots.
The cathedral does indeed look very dramatic. Love the colours.My favourite though is No. 3. although i find the colours very very bright i love it
Hope it is not too long before you become the proud owner of a dslr, and look forward to seeing your photos when you do.
Good luck,

Thank you.

I agree on the 3rd shot, it is a little bright, I could have darkened it a little or used recovery in Lightroom maybe?
