When we were in Ireland the first and second week of July.
Nicely done; with the exception of the blown area to the right, this is a very nice scene. Consider using a CPOL and/or G-ND to help reduce blown highlights of this nature.
You'll have to pardon my "newness", I don't know what that is :blushing:
Apologies - CPOL= Circular polarizing filter used to reduce reflection and increase contrast. G-ND= Graduated Neutral Density filter, used to allow you overcome overly bright areas in a scene by providing a section of the filter which while transparent, allows you to effectively reduce the dynamic range of a scene.
You must use these externally of the camera when shooting? Too bad I'm not still in Ireland . . . but I'll look into those and bring them when we go back
They're "add-ons" which attach to your camera's lens via the threads at the front.
Great! Thanks for the input
Any other C&C would be great
Did you capture any other images of the castle?
Not of that particular castle, we were kind of goofing around there.
However, this first shot is one I took of the castle, using DoF to put the old cannon (what you can tell of it) in the background. I know, it's not an astounding shot, I just came across it and put it in B&W.
This is another castle we came across that was closed, so I shot a few of the outside. I know the sky is quite overexposed, but thought I'd share for the heck of it.
C&C on the second two would be grandly appreciated
very beautiful shots
