This is Lusk, on the East coast of Ireland just North of Swords and Malahide, near Dublin. Something completely different. I once saw a photograph taken in the day and someone had turned it into a night time photograph in photoshop. It's still on ePHOTOzine somewhere, an amazing skill, complete with lamps lighting up the church. This is a church I would have loved to photograph at night but I was on my way to the Howth peninsula so just took a daytime photo of it instead.

I selected the sky and inverted it (turning it into night) and basically selected all the brightest areas and using levels and burning in tools attempted to turn a day photo into a night photo.

It's certainly not perfect but just me playing about.

All comments and suggestions very welcome indeed.

Andrew.

hmm, ok, I can see where you were going, and its not too bad. It certainly has a nighttime feel to it. There is some ghosting (pun intended) of the gate on the left, and some softness in some areas with adjacent areas of sharpness, and some artifacts around the edges of the leaves in the tree. Also, a few areas in the sky could with blurring to hide some chunky artifacts. So, some technical bits and bobs to work on. I like the concept, lots of hard work I guess, and I'd say generally a good effort.

Have to agree very dramatic scene, and a harsh colour

Great image and presentation!
By-the-way, I have drank in pubs all over Ireland and never had a drink in Carrickfergus, yet I live in Glengormley (approx 7 miles).
One other thing, your image of the castle is very good and unique, but how did you manage to hide all the rest of the castle behind the entrance? It's a big castle!
Regards,
Peter.

Thank you very much for your constructive critique (1 CC point on the way). The image is certainly not perfect, especially the colour, and I take all of your points on board, I just wanted to try something completely different, still not too sure if it has worked or not. Your comments are very much appreciated!

Andrew.

Colour blindness is very common in men, I'm colour blind too and so is my brother, very rare in women, I've never met a colourblind woman yet. Reds, greens and browns confuse the hell out of me, so you are certainly not on your own!
