Urban landscapes: the approaching day
DAWN IN DUBLIN PORT, IRELAND
Among the benefits of going on a cruise is seeing working ports in action. I made this picture from the top of the Caribbean Princess as daybreak approached in Dublin, the capital of the Irish Republic. The hour or so before dawn is a great time to make long exposure pictures like this; artificial illumination still has a visual impact, but there’s enough natural light to see the entire scene.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
