Thanks AJ and JT

You are very kind- and JT, I have seen your gallery - you do not need any assistance from a clown like me !! :)

Very best wishes

Wonderful night photo Dean. Texture of the stonework and contrast with the windmill is very appealing. Regards Derek

Another lovely composition from the same place, this time with a flat perspective. It seems that you had a great time there taking great photos, each of them has different compositions and light. This is a beautiful night shot with perfect light management and excellent clarity. I like this one too. Congratulations and best wishes, Suleyman.

Dean Matthews on July 30, 2012

Thanks again Suleyman - I did have a great time and as usual in Ireland the weather gave me 4 seasons in one afternoon to play about with

Very nice! Would be interesting also with a longer shutter speed as it would make a totally different photo with 'fluffy' gold water and a blur of the windmill rotor. Not to distract from this shot it is well composed and a great contrast of light and shadows!
Best Regards

Hi Shaun,

Thanks !! :)

It wasn't moving all day ( I think it does occasionally work as there are still sails attached to the arm frames)

Regarding longer shutter speeds - I really need to learn how to do this properly. In my case here the mill and street lights completely over exposed after more than about a second - in this image here the bridge was not lit much at all so I masked this and really brought it right up.

I am guessing the only thing i could have done was take multiple shots and blend later - sort of like HDR?

This is also an awesome image. Did you spent a whole day next to this bridge?

Dean Matthews on August 1, 2012

Thanks Peti - yeah I hung around here for about 6 hours as the light and weather were changing very rapidly

Hi Els - many thanks for your kind comments - I have since found out how I could have done this better - so next time :) :)
