I suspect Hoppy saw Santa last night as she was extra happy this morning!

The Stars of Cork are Glowing

The Stars of Cork are Glowing

Here’s another shot of the ferris wheel and the lights of Cork City along the River Lee from earlier this month. It’s taken from a location near where I shot my previous Glow photo. I prefer this one however, the colours are more saturated, the starlike effect is enhanced and the angle is more interesting. What do you think?

Quickly Match Exposures in Lightroom

I had no idea this existed, but then I’ve rarely had to match the exposures of multiple files. When I used the GIMP to edit photos I would play around with multiple exposures more often but Lightroom can extract so much information from RAW files it covers 99% of my image development.

tl;dr – fix the exposure of one image, select other relevant images and click on Settings->Match Total Exposures.
