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.

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.

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.
