Alleyway in Dublin

Im taking a bit of a step away from the HDR and the beach shots for today. Believe me there are a few more lined up in the que so this should be a bit of a relief. These images were edited in Lightroom, then combined using Photoshop. I then used the Intensity Pro plugin to make the mid tones a bit sharper, and add just a bit more snap to the image. The last touch was to add a bit of vignette in Lightroom then export the entire image.

I found an awesome alleyway when I was exploring Dublin.I forget exactly where it is but I really like the light that came through. Also people kept walking though the alley so I ended up moving around a bit hence the differing framing for the three shots.

I have found that portrait oriented images really don’t show up well on Pixelbip so I have decided to focus on landscape or square framing. I liked each of these images on their own, but because they are portrait I was unable to use them. Then I had the brilliant idea to combine them into one image and this is the result.

Looking at this has inspired me to seek out a specific alleyway in Victoria. So the  plan for tomorrow is to get some more alleyway images.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
