Temporary Dwelling Prohibited

A Cork County Council warning sign looms overhead at Garretstown Beach, Co. Cork. Luckily I had left the caravan at home and the rubbish was in the bin!

This photo shows one of the disadvantages of shooting in Jpeg – it can’t cope with the subtle shades of blue in the sky, although the ugly bands of colour are made worse by my vignetting of the image afterwards. Oops.

In other news, I ordered Bibble Labs Pro RAW conversion version using a discount code on The Digital Photography Show. The nice thing is, I can use the Pro edition on Linux and the Mac, which will be useful. It’s also a great piece of software and will encourage me to shoot more RAW images.

I also ordered the Canon 50mm f1.8 lens from warehouseexpress.com (via) who were reasonably priced. Hopefully I’ll get that in the next few days and in time to shoot the IT@Cork conference in a week’s time. Eddie Hobbs and various people from the online world will be speaking there and I hope to get some goot shots.

  1. I like the way you framed up this sign and the perspective you shot from. Great image!!

    Isn’t it almost as great as being a kid waiting for Christmas…knowing you have a new lens arriving soon?

    Thanks for commenting! I’ve just bought myself a copy of Biible labs Pro so I hope to shoot more RAW. I need to dump a load of images to DVD storage first however because I’ve only got about 3GB of space left! Ooer!

  3. Thanks Micki! I had fun with that shot. I crouched down and pointed the camera up aiming to get the pole of the sign coming out of the corner of the frame! Thankfully it worked: I got the pole right and the sun is bursting out from behind the sign.
    Obviously, I had to brighten up the sign afterwards with some layers but that’s not too hard to do!
