My images from live events and other things non-landscape

Often, when not photographing Ireland's wild and beautiful landscapes, I am indeed photographing many of the world's biggest bands or completing commissions for international publishers.

Fairy Bower Falls, Morton National Park
Celebration: countdown 34

A spray of water, long pendulous roots and ferns cling to this fragile rock-face partway down the Bundanoon canyon.

Image: Cliff faces are the natural enemy of cameras: high contrast environments inevitably mean the lit part of your shot will be overexposed and the shadows will be underexposed. Ordinarily, in poor light with mist rising i would try a HDR composition to even out the contrast or a long exposure to flesh out the shadows (frustrated here because of clouds of mist rising from the nearby large fall and a healthy breeze up the escarpment.

Instead, i took a series of stills from a video i took of this scene. Rewatching the video, i was struck by a significant difference in the white and brightness balance between the dynamic and momentary images. In the dynamic, the static elements (cliff face and vegetation) seemed darker and the shadows deeper while the spray of water was distinct and brighter. This was most noticeable in the top left of the image, where brightness in the undercliff reflections in the still image originally swamped the fall.

I have tried to deal with this using a series of differential filters and by using a technique i have explained previously - placing the original image beneath a 40-60% translucent and desaturated image toned for structure.

Inevitably there is a trade off - a DSLR will be defeated by mist and wind - a video is not going to capture fine detail.

Celebrate: Thank you. To celebrate what we all achieved on G+, i am publishing the 50 most viewed posts in this collection until shutdown. This is a reprocessed image of side falls to the lower Bundernoon Creek Falls (34th most viewed - viewed 1,917,409 times).

This Chicks Sunday Commentary: Book-Blogger Mashup!

At work the other day someone described a friends personality as you would describe a fine wine. You know “she’s bold with an undertone of ripe raspberry’s growing on the coast of California, with a hint of salt”. It got me thinking, I have been following many of you for a few years and after reading some of your reviews, can almost provide my own Book-Blogger Mashup.

Mystery of purple lights in sky solved by Astronomers

You might have seen a bright, white-purple ribbon weaving up into the sky, unlike anything you had ever seen before. Could it be lighting? Fireworks? Maybe a spaceship finally bringing the first wave of envoys from the nearest habitable planet?

This Chick Read: Fall (VIP #3) by Kristen Callihan

Fall is the third novel in VIP, a rock star romance series by Kristen Callihan. Having had the story of two previous members in this band (well, #2 was about their Manager but..) we already know Jax Blackwood’s history. He was the catalyst to Killian’s escape from reality in VIP. Jax is the best friend who tried to kill himself and sent the band whirling into despair and confusion. Knowing this, I wondered how Ms. Callihan was going to inject a lightness into this troubled man’s story. That injection came in the form of Stella, a funny “free spirit” who dares to knock down Jax’s mental blockade and make him feel again.

As #NorthKorea signals a willingness to open up its highly centralized, socialist economy, #Vietnam's model of development is being widely suggested as a blueprint for Pyongyang to emulate. Hanoi's ability to retain one-party rule, strict censorship, minimal dissent and a top-down system of control after integrating into the #globaleconomy is an attractive prospect for North Korea.

To gauge lessons for its own future, North Korea has long studied communist governments such as #China and Vietnam, countries with state-managed growth that have integrated into the world economy. As Hanoi prepares to host the second U.S.-North Korea summit in late February, experts believe Kim may be more inclined toward Vietnamese-style liberalization. Vietnam's Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh traveled to Pyongyang on Tuesday following North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho's visit to Hanoi last year.

Regardless of the outcome of special counsel #RobertMueller’s investigation into Donald #Trump’s presidential campaign team’s alleged conspiring with #Russia, the president may face even greater difficulties stemming from the the Southern District of New York's separate inquiry. The Department of Justice’s guidelines, which Mueller is subject to, does not permit the indictment of a sitting president. But some former prosecutors in the Watergate scandal, which led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon, believe the Southern District of New York, for which they also worked, isn't subject to the precedent.

The Southern District's investigative team was a big part of Trump’s former lawyer #MichaelCohen’s downfall. In August, Cohen struck a deal with the Southern District, pleading guilty to several financial crimes.The Southern District also issued a subpoena to Trump’s inauguration committee, to investigate several allegations.
