The River, The Brewery and the Cathedral

    Newer Older

    The River Lee rushes by the Beamish and Crawford Brewery on one side,
    and O'Sullivan Electrical on the other with St. Finbarre's Cathedral in
    the background.

    I have discovered there's a dead pixel on my camera's sensor.
    Fortunately it doesn't seem to show itself much but when I take long
    exposure shots like the one above a little red dot appears in the
    top-right of the image. It's easy to get rid of with the clone tool but
    also annoying.

    The Wacom graphics tablet is great fun to play with but I haven't got it
    working fully in Linux yet. Ubuntu thinks it's simply another mouse
    device and GIMP doesn't see it as an "extended device". I spent quite
    some time on the Ubuntu forums trying to fix it yesterday before giving
    up and trying it out on a few images.
    It's a little fiddly to begin with, but I think that's
    par-for-the-course when using a new tool. I do find that when dodging
    and burning large sections of images the brush can get stuck and won't
    follow the cursor but I've read that once it's properly configured
    performance is improved so I hope that is fixed then.

    Hope you had a nice Christmas Day!

      cool perspective & the long exposure makes the water look soft...
