Lightsabers at Grand Canal Dock

A shot of Grand Canal Dock in Dublin, Ireland. The piece of art at the dock always reminds me of Darth Vaders Lightsaber! The shot was taken with a Nikon D810 camera using a Nikkor 16-35mm f/4 lens. I edited the photo using DXO Pro Optics 10, Adobe Lightroom 5 (to reduce the levels of all colours except red) and then reduced the noise levels using Topaz Labs DeNoise 5. Thanks for looking!

The Ha’Penny Bridge during Golden Hour

NIKD810 Ha'Penny Bridge HDR Sunset 171015Original size, high resolution prints are available from http://tinyurl.com/nrcph3u Alternatively, you can follow me on FB at http://tinyurl.com/bpmne4a
A 5 exposure, blended HDR shot of the Ha’Penny Bridge which spans the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland. This shot was taken during the Golden Hour, just before sunset.
This shot was taken using a Nikon D810 camera with a Nikkor 16-35mm f/4 wide angle lens. Due to the different types of light in the scene, I had to shoot multiple exposures and blend them together using Raya Pro. The foreground including the trees were normally exposed, with the sunset and sky being underexposed to retain the detail in the clouds. Once I was happy with the final blended shot, I adjusted the shadows, blacks, clarity and tones in Lightroom and then reduced some of the noise using Topaz Labs DeNoise 5.
