The Ha’Penny Bridge during Golden Hour

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.

You can follow me on Facebook at http://tinyurl.com/bpmne4a Fortress Lovrijenac dates back to between 1018 to 1038, although first records of the forts existence are from 1301 when the council voted on the Commander of the Fort. This detached fortress served as defence against attack from land and sea and was manned by a 25 man garrison and a Commander of the Fort. It has often been used as a backdrop in scenes filmed for HBO's Game of Thrones TV series. This is a long exposure shot taken with a Nikon D810 camera, using a Nikkor 16-35mm f/4 wide angle lens. The long exposure was created using a Lee Big Stopper Filter. The shot was edited using DXO Pro Optics 10, Adobe Lightroom 5 and Topaz Labs DeNoise 5. Thanks for looking!

Kayaks at Dubrovnik Walls

You can follow me on Facebook at http://tinyurl.com/bpmne4a Multi coloured Kayaks sit at the base of the city walls in Dubrovnik Old Town, Croatia. The circular part of the wall is known as "Fort Bokar" or "Zvjezdan". It was built as one of the key defences of the city, between 1461 to 1463 whilst the city walls were being reconstructed. This part of the walls has been used numerous times during the filming of HBO's Game of Thrones TV series, most notably in season 2, where Tyrion and Lord Varys planned the defence of King's Landing during the Battle of Blackwater. This is a long exposure shot taken with a Nikon D810 camera, using a Nikkor 16-35mm f/4 wide angle lens. The long exposure was created using a Lee Big Stopper Filter.

The sunset over the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland last night.

This photo was taken using a Sony NEX-6 camera with a Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN lens. I reduced some lens anomalies using DXO Pro Optics 9. It was 2 different exposures that were merged into one image using the HDR processing function within Photoshop CS6. I then adjusted the levels slightly using Lightroom 5, reduced some noise using the Topaz Labs DeNoise 5 plug-in and finally applied a Topaz Labs Clarity preset.

This is the scene at Custom House in Dublin, Ireland. This weekend sees the start of the St. Patricks Day festivities.

This is a 5 shot panorama taken with a Sony NEX-6 camera using a Sigma 30mm f/2.8 EX DN lens. I reduced some lens anomalies using DXO Pro Optics 9. I then stitched the 5 shots together using PTGui Pro. From there I took the panorama into Adobe Photoshop CS6 and used Topaz DeNoise 5 to remove the slight amount of Noise that was in the shots. I also applied one of the presets from Topaz Clarity. I finally took the panorama into Adobe Lightroom 5 and adjusted the levels slightly.
