Again some pictures from yesterday (yes, more boats!), but this time in B&W. Today's actually as grey as yesterday, but even though the rain could be imminent, I think I'll chance it and go out in quest for more photos.
Today was quite pleasant even though it was cloudy and coming to September I may not see many Saturdays without rain (a bit pessimist I know). Well, here are some shots I took around the harbour in Howth.
That's a photo taken in the west of Ireland. It's normally very green but I prefer it in B&W. It look rainy and empty, which ismore or less the truth really. I think there are more sheep than peole in thois region of Ireland.
This is a shot I took last year, shortly after receiving my SLR. This was taken at the Commitments concert in Merrion Square, Dublin. I changed most of the shots that day to B&W but for this one it didn't seem right.
I want to start entering some competitions in order to keep my motivation and make some progress. The competition I want to enter is organised by Digital Camera Magazine (http://poty2008.dcmag.co.uk/3913562628353997603/2007winners.html). I have low expectations about the results but that way I can't be disappointed. Does anybody know some competitions to enter?
Also, please don't hesitate to comment and share your pictures with me. I'd really like to start practicing on portraits but it's not easy to find the model for it, most people don't like to be photographed!
