A place with history



A bus stop in the city centre of Belfast, Northern Ireland.

  1. I really like the sky in this picture – it’s simple yet so effective with the grey clouds against the white. (The rest of the image is lovely too, of course). May I ask if you did any editing on this photo?

    1. Thanks so much for your nice words, Jessica!

      Actually, yes, I had to edit the shot quite a bit. Especially since I shot against the sun which results in a lot of contrast between white of the sun and black in the shadows. Basically, what I did was to reduce the extremes to have the clouds visible while still have the darker parts of the buildings and the bus shown. To still have a bit of contrast, I used quite a bit of clarity.

      I’m glad you like it 🙂

      1. Thank you for sharing. I’m still trying to learn how to edit photos well, so I’ll have to keep what you said in mind for if I ever take photographs against sunlight. Again, great image 🙂

      2. Thank you, thank you 🙂

        From my point of view, editing is only half the effort, if at all. Breaking this ‘don’t shoot against sunlight’ rule can work in different ways. A lot of people shoot more than one image and combine them into one, HDR is made easy with a lot of applications. Others like me try to shoot the image with either too much or too less light and try to find everything while editing the image. Or some people do not shoot in raw-format at all, but in jpg and try to work their way forward from there. I am wondering to write about editing in general anyway, maybe, I’ll use this image as a start in the next few days 🙂

  2. Haha, you’re right of course, taking the image is the main task. I think I’ll have to read up some more on this, I’m still learning at the moment. If you do publish an article on editing, I shall be sure to read it!
