No need for an uprising, I will get back to natural history photos in a sec. I just like this shot of locks of love on a bridge over the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland. It always fascinates me that people would attach their "lock of love" to, well, someone else's lock! Think about it...
There is a lot of reason to use HDR photos (high dynamic range) when shooting pics where there is a lot of light change across the photo. And digital cameras today are in tune with this. The idea is to bracket a photo's exposure and then combine the shots digitally to make a better pic.
This is not an altogether perfect fix to difficult lighting conditions, but can be quite useful at times. Here is a pic without such...
But few have the time to sit around and wait for the light to be just right on a particular door. So while this shot is okay, it can be improved with a bit of HDR work. I took three photos of the door, at metered, plus one and minus one. Putting this into software that averages them, I got this shot.
And I think this is better pic of a colorful door in Ireland.
But no matter how Irish you are, or how much green you wear...
Happy Saint Patrick's Day to everybody!
A rare bit of cave-related humor I just found...
I was chastised for not including a location on the limpet photo from yesterday. I have corrected that, and included the species of limpet as well.
These seem to be the limpet Patella vulgata, and were photographed in the Sandycove area of Dun Laoghaire. Specifically at:
29U 692302E and 5908206N
