Re-work Wednesday 26

The NightmareWhen I started this back in January I never thought that I would still be doing it over six months later, and yet here I am. I was just looking through the images I have done to date and its turning into a nice little collection. For this week I returned to the Bram Stoker Festival I did last year. As they say, ‘Third time is a charm’. And yes I think I am still stuck in a much darker place than usual, but I am enjoying the process, so it cant be too bad. This weeks shot was taken at Dublin Castle and was part of the performance for Dracula’s Fire Garden. as I went through the arched doorway which led to the inner courtyard there were a number of these unsavoury demonic creatures were lurking in the shadows, waiting for unsuspecting victims. Luckily for me I was on the ball and was expecting something. I went through the archway like Seal Team 6 and shot the hell out of them, with my camera of course.

Not knowing exactly what to expect and with some really tricky lighting I set the camera to Auto, Its not something that I normally do, preferring to shoot in either Aperture or Shutter Priority. Butย it worked to my advantage on this occasion, out of the 15 shots I took, only three were scrapped, not bad considering. I was planning on doing a straight mono conversion but it did nothing for me, so I started messing around with some layers and ended up with this as my final image. Hope you all like it ๐Ÿ™‚ As always any thoughts or comments you may have would be greatly appreciated.
