This is a photo of the sunset tonight over the River Lee in Cork City, Ireland. The bridge you can see is the Brian Boru Bridge, and to the left of this you can see the glass covered shelter of the Cork Bus Station in Parnell Place.

This photo was taken with a Sony NEX 6 camera using a Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN lens. This is a series of 4 shots with differing shutter speeds (0.5sec to 5secs), merged into a single HDR image. I edited the photo firstly using DXO Pro Optics 9, then I removed a small amount of Noise in each of the images, using Topaz Labs DeNoise 5. I then merged all of the images into a single HDR file, using Photomatix Pro 5. The HDR image was then taken into Photoshop CS6, and I applied a preset setting from Topaz Labs Clarity. Finally I removed some dust spots from the image using Lightroom 5.

Thanks for looking!
