Barcelona Harbour

Barc 20c w

 

Well, it seems like ages since my last blog post – and in fact it is!

But here I am back with a burst of colour and a picture taken on my recent holiday to Barcelona. I actually visited both Barcelona and Paris so there will be plenty of pictures coming up!

I’m not sure if this should be called harbour or marina as it is the lead up to the marina – if anyone wants to correct me then please go ahead.

As those of you who follow my blog will know I am a fan of HDR so when I had the chance to get back to Barcelona I thought I would do it properly. Properly you may ask?? Well yes, those of you in the know will already know that there is a one click cheats way of doing HDR pictures and also the correct way i.e. 3 pictures that are combined. So my memory cards were full and it took me two days to complete them all.

Don’t worry – I’m not going to put them all on here :-)

So if you like my post please show your appreciation and let me know.

Look out for more coming soon.

Sunny day in London

Sunny day in London

Well it appears it has been a couple of months since my last post promising not to be away for so long!

Well it’s been a busy couple of months with one thing and another so I’ve decided I can be forgiven :-).

So where have I been and what have I been up to?

Well I’m ashamed to say not much photography – I can almost here the boos and jeers of derision.

However I did have a lovely day out in London last week, the sun was blazing and I did have my camera – aren’t you pleased! I had another day there recently but that mainly consisted of eating and drinking so no pictures from that :-)

So here we go, my shot of London taken from Westminster Bridge.

I promise to be better and take more shots soon.

A slice of Paris life

A slice of Paris life

Hello everyone or should I say bonjour mes amis.

It has been far too long since my last blog post and I thought I’d go for a Paris picture to get back in the swing.

I have to admit that I didn’t actually take the picture but I was stood next to the photographer as he took it! I then just got hold of it and gave it a HDR makeover :-)

As you can see, it is a Paris street scene (never!) and now the difficult bit – the remembering where exactly we were when it was take.

Fairly sure we’d been to the Sacre Coeur and were walking around admiring the views and happened across this scene.

I could however be mistaken :-)

But it is definitely Paris!

For more Paris pictures just click on picture and you’ll be taken to our website.

Til next time – au revoir.

A Parisien Post

A Parisien Post

Well, you wait months for a blog post and then two come along at once!

As I was adding some Paris shots onto our website I thought I’d share one of the pictures with you.

However, I am going to show my ignorance a little as it is a while since this picture was taken and I can’t quite remember the name of the actual building. So if anyone can help me then do please let me know.

I know that I was outside La Basilique du Sacré Cœur de Montmartre and this building is on the left as you face the entrance. I’m sure there are now people tutting and calling me all sorts of names but there we go – I’ll have to live with it.

It is again presented in HDR format and yes, I know for all you perfectionists that this ‘isn’t what’s seen through the lens’. However, I like the technique and as it’s my photo I reserve the right to present it any way I like :-)

As I mentioned, I have just uploaded two new pages of Paris pictures so please head over to http://www.imjphotoart.co.uk and take a look (and before you tell me, I know Versailles isn’t actually in Paris but I had to put those pictures somewhere!)

You can also click on the picture and this will take you directly to my website.

So until my next post – au revoir.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

So how many of us has made a New Year Resolution I wonder?

I must admit I have and I’m hoping it’s an easy one to keep as my resolution is to get back into the swing of blogging which I have rather neglected of late.

So we’re kicking off with some news of our fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support.

We’re starting the year by donating all the profits from sales of this print to the charity. You can buy it in sizes ranging from 6″ x 4″ up to A3 and all you have to do is visit our website http://www.imjphotoart.co.uk (or alternatively just click on the picture!) and you won;t be able to miss it.

It’s a HDR picture taken earlier in the year of Cardiff Bay and would look great on any wall or as a smaller print on your sideboard or shelf.

With prices starting at just £4 why don’t you treat yourself and help this fantastic charity while you do it.

Mermaid Quay and Cardiff Bay

Mermaid Quay and Cardiff Bay

Tonight – two for the price of one! A second blog post to make up for the lack of posts in recent months.

This is another Cardiff picture taken across Cardiff Bay onto Mermaid Quay.

Again the HDR effect has really enhanced the scene.

As always, if you want to visit my website just click on the picture.

Mermaid Quay – Cardiff

Mermaid Quay - Cardiff

I have become very behind with my blogging so thought I had better get moving and get a blog post on!

I have stayed with the Cardiff theme as it is the most recent photography that I have done – yes I’ve even got behind with that too!

This is a vibrant HDR shot of Mermaid Quay in Cardiff Bay. The sky was perfect for a bit of drama and has been captured in a very nice way even if I do say so myself.
