Cork Morn

We have had our fair share of glorious mornings in Cork recently and here is another image taken in the morning a little after the Β sun had risen.

Morning Breaks over Cork City

Compositionally I struggled and was under time pressure, but I just loved the light on the water.

Let me know what you think and have a great day.

  1. Great lighting! I see what you mean when you say you struggled with the composition. The two largest structures jutting into the sky need a third element; to some degree the bridge slanting towards the lower left provides a counterpoint. It might help to place the line of buildings into the upper third (instead of the middle) of the picture; alternatively, bring the buildings into the lower third with more sky and less reflection (paying homage to the rule of thirds). Hope this is helpful…


    1. Thanks for commenting Beauty. I tend to think I am in agreement with LeeCleland and focusing more on the reflections might have yielded better results. Great to keep pushing oneself and thanks for the shove too – all greatly appreciated. MM πŸŽ…

  2. Oh John, I’m going to be a bit different about the image, is that OK. You did ask for comments πŸ™‚
    The photo is nice enough but I think this is a case of what we saw and what we are able to capture don’t align. The light on the water is fabulous and I know you had time constraints. Not knowing the area at all, I wonder if just concentrating on the water (more an abstract) may have given more emphasis to the beauty of the reflected light. Just my thoughts, hope you don’t mind?

    1. No I love to get other people’s thoughts and perspective. I may not always agree with them but it is great to get the input of others – otherwise how do we learn, improve etc?…Yeah I love the undulating ripples in the water and the reflections, that may be concentrating on that solely may have been worth a go – I tend to agree with you on this one. Thanks for your comments Lee – always good to get constructive criticism. Have a great weekend, MM πŸŽ…


      1. So glad you took the comment in the way it was intended. I’m often not sure whether to open my mouth or just shut up. I do enjoy following your blog and look forward to many more fabulous images and possible interactions.

      1. In Oslo we have 6 hours of sunlight today. From 09:16 – 15:11.
        My family up North haven’t seen the sun since the end of November and won’t see it again before the end of January.


Love to hear what you think
