Moments can last forever...

trying, discovering, learning...

  This is more or less what my last time out with my camera was all about. After my first attempt, I posted few pics on forums, and got critics from friends and family which really helped me figure out what was good, what was not and what was to improve... So I want to thank you all (and specially daddy ^^) for all your feedbacks, keep them coming !

  So here it is, my second attempt, still in the learning process, but I think/hope there's improvement !
  All the below pics have been taken in the docks area in Dublin city center, nearby where I live. This area is so inspiring for me, its modern architecture makes it one of Dublin's most popular district at the minute and there are loads of wonders to play with if you look carefully at your surrounding.

  All pics below have been shot with the EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6.

  The first picture below is the LUAS, the tram of Dublin, at Mayor Square/NCI stop, Tallaght bound. I worked the selective colour afterwards :

  Next is the Convention Center of Dublin, which opened last year. I really have to take a picture at night time of this building as the light system on it is exceptional I have to say !

  At The Point, you can stay in a brand new hotel, the Gibson Hotel, whose architecture reminds the one of an airport...

  Below is an old bridge that Dublin Council kept for its authenticity and its vibrant "industrial architecture" which is very popular nowadays :

  As I said earlier, Dublin is a very inspiring place if you look around you, unexpected elements can be turned into ineresting subject, just like those pipes turned upside down afterwards (click on the vignette to see the full picture) :

  And last but not least, a "Will creativity" pic, about reflections and distortions... 
  In reflection in the windows, you can see the magnificent Samuel Beckett white bridge, dedicated to Ireland with its harp shape :

  So, what's next Will ?
  Well, I think I'm gonna experiment a new thing now : long exposure photography at night time. And after, I might begin my "Dublin now and then" project... something I have in mind for a while.

  Stay tuned !
  Will.

  • Retou.. quoi ?

    J'avais envie de mentir là, mais bon, oui oui, c'est du retouché derrière !
    J'aime beaucoup le travail de retouche derrière, ça m'intéresse autant que la partie "prise de photo", exploiter les différentes possibilités offertes par les clichés...
