bonjour Marie
this is wonderful; though the poor light of a rainy day
this shot is full of clarity light and colours.The great dof and perfect sharpness add to a perfect composition

Hi Marie
I like it so much.this image is so sharp and full of colors.
it is one of my dreamm to go there one day.
a great shot...well done


Welcome to TL !
Fantastic work here, I love this so much.
Wonderful atmosphere of rainy day with an excellent use of lighting and colors.
Very good photo. WoW !

Beautiful eye catching shot, Marie.
Nice post processing work too.

There's plenty of interest and sharp fine detail in the image.
The reflections of the headlights of the van and that eye popping orange of the painted wall of the distant building really bring the image to life. The man holding his beer glass, looking into the shot works wonders too.

Did you use the NIK effex plug in for the HDR and soft focus effect or another vendor plugin?

I'm intrigued and interested because the post processing is perfectly balanced and not overdone in any way.

By the way, welcome to the site,



Hello Marie, welcome to TL.
This is a lovely picture, the colours so typical of towns in Southern Ireland.There is so much detail to enjoy here.
A rainy day; the dull conditions actually enhance the shot, especially with the headlights reflected on the road.
I like the man standing looking out of the picture towards you.
I look forward to seeing more from you.
Thanks for sharing, regards Jean.

Rain gives a great atmosphere.

Hi Marie, welcome to TL - Ilike your first entry very much, full of live - colors and action - it keeps your eyes moving around for all the details.Very well done - kind regarads Monika - good interesting note to go with the picture.

Ciao Marie, welcome on TL, fascinating urban view, great perspective, good PP work, splendid lightand colors, very well done, friendly Silvio

Hi Marie.

Welcome to Treklens.
The textures throughtout this opening image of yours is a pleasure to behold. The eye wants to roam around for awhile and seek out new areas. I hope you will be able to tell how this was achieved as many would like to give this a try. Its very attractive, even the guy on the right is staring across the road at something...it creates the mind to wonder, which is what a good picture or painting should do. tfs

stv ;o))

Hi Marie,
A beautiful daily life scene with HDR treatment,
beautiful light and contrast with amazing colors and tone,
Nicely composed and presented..
very well taken and done.
My compliments,

Hi Marie, Like a drawing very nice colors and light. I am so impressed... Regards Okan

This is a super shot, full of activity and vibrant colour. Have you used an HDR treatment? I love all the different colours of the buildings and the wet pavement adds interest too. The only distracting thing in the composition for me is the street sign pole which cuts across the picture on the bin in the foreground but other than that this is an interesting and artistic image.


Hi Marie...very nice shot...excellent tones and light..nice work!


Hi Marie, this is a beautiful outcome with the HDR. You can tell its hdr but in avery good way. None of the nasty halos and the colours really pop.It may be a rainy day but I love the light on those shop fronts.I have Photomatix, now I know I need to play around wit it more. Fiona

Hi Marie,
This is just an awsome image,good light,nice depth, interesting subjects in the street,archetecture and cobbled stone street.

Hi Marie,
You work is amazing! You beautify what one would never imagine could be possible to do so!
Excellent colors in this busy narrow street: from the texture of the walls, beauty of the flower pots down to the reflection of the lights on the street, each and every little detail is a wonder.
