This is a shot of O’Connell Bridge that spans the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland. It was originally built in 1791-1794, but was reconstructed in 1877-1880. The bridge links O’Connell street to D’Olier Street, Westmoreland Street and the South Quays.
In the background you can see O’Connell monument and the Spire of Dublin, which is (apparently) the worlds tallest sculpture (although, how true that is, I don’t know).
This photo was taken using a Sony NEX6 camera with a Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 lens at 16mm. It was edited in DXO Pro Optics 9. Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CS6 using the Topaz Labs DeNoise 5 and Topaz Labs Clarity plug ins. I then converted the shot to 5 different exposures (-2 to +2) within Photoshop and merged these into one single HDR file, using Photomatix Pro 5.
Thanks for looking!
