Brussels – the unpublished works

Hi everyone,

I often take shots that I never do anything with of things that catch my eye and/or appeal to my sense of humour when I’m walking around on my travels. I thought I’d share with you some such shots of Brussels that have previously never seen the light of day, until now that is. πŸ™‚

New work : “Artistry”

Hi everyone,

I found these whilst going back through my shots from my trip to Brussels. I forgot just how beautiful it was inside. Four works from the beautiful interior of the Eglise Sainte-Catherine, Brussels. I edited these as HDR. Click image for a larger view on my Flickr page.

Let’s get things perfectly straight (converging verticals)

Hi everyone,

I’m not a big fan of converging verticals. One of the first things that I habitually do with my architectural works is correct for these, my favourite tool of choice being DXO Viewpoint. In my opinion, this program is pretty much a must-have for anyone interested in photographing architectural views. I also use their PhotoLab and previously Optics Pro software for some basic corrections but Viewpoint is a great product for more advanced correction and integrates with both Optics Pro and PhotoLab.

A small tip, when framing the scene do not frame the subject too tightly, leave a fair amount of “wiggle” room around edges πŸ™‚ as it’ll be needed when applying correction. Else you will end up with parts of the building cut off. This is the exception to my general habit of composing a scene 100% in the viewfinder and not cropping during processing. As an exception to the above I’ll not be using this process if I ever get to photograph the leaning tower of Pizza. πŸ™‚
