Getting a good quality image of City hall in Dublin has been on my bucket list for a while now and while I have photographed it many times I feel that this time was the best. With the easing of restrictions here in Ireland, it was time to head into the city and give this shot another try.
Blue hour is such a fantastic window of time to photograph in an urban environment, offering really great contrast in the blue sky and the orange artificial light of the street lamps. All that is left to do is find a nice composition, set up and fire away. The journey of photography is one of constant learning and with the post-processing of this image I was faced with some fantastic challenges to overcome.
Finding a good balance between natural and artificial light and combining these to create a dynamic image was the task at hand. There are plenty of compositions around this beautiful building so be sure to take your time to explore. I am super delighted with how the image turned out and look forward to heading back into the city centre to photograph more of my wonderful hometown.
