Ferris wheel

My last photo for now from the Dun Laoghaire Festival this year.

Ferris Wheel at night

More difficult to take than I expected. The wheel wasn’t turning very fast, and I found it hard to get a long enough exposure to get really good light trails. I suppose I should have used an ND filter – but didn’t have one with me (hadn’t really expected to need one for this !).

Was driving around the M50 yesterday, and saw the same wheel (I think) being erected in a field near Palmerstown.

Watermarks on Images

Filed under: General Photography, Websites — photographydublin @ 5:33 pm

I dislike having to add watermarks to my photos, as I feel they reduce the impact a bit. However, in the galleries on my business website, I have included watermarks – albeit fairly unobtrusive ones. The reason for this is that I’ve had images stolen from another of my sites and passed off as someone else’s (even down to having their own copyright notice appended).

I found the images when searching for something else, and they were quickly removed by the webmaster, once I was able to prove ownership. However, I feel it’s sad that anyone would even bother to try and pass someone else’s work off as their own.

Yet another from the FOWC.

I managed to get a good position just on front of the stage by arriving early. This one is of Rossa Ó Snodaigh of Kila.

Dun Laoghaire Festival of World Cultures 2007

Went down to the festival again this afternoon. Luckily the weather was good, and Dun Laoghaire was packed. Here’s one of my first photos from the day – I’ll post some more later.

Welcome to my new Blog.

This blog is specifically about photography – but not necessarily about Dublin only, I just happen to live there.

Apart from including some of my photos, I will also be commenting on matters in relation to my photography business Frank Courtney Photography
