Howth; Dublin

Dublin so far. Will update on the theme of Dublin more in the following articles.

Thank you for looking!

Dublin, Ireland (Baile Átha Cliath, Éire)

So i left the cold harsh winter in Romania to catch spring in Ireland. I've moved here for a job and to further my studies. Since i came i didn't have much time to photowalk around the city, specially since i live in the 'burbs, yo. So i've tried capturing the beauty of suburban Dublin, as well as some parts of the city center. Critique is always welcome, so feel free to comment!

P.S.: This thread is also a "goodbye" to my trusty Canon EOS 5D which i've sold over the past weeks.
I know.. sad...right?
Not really, i bought the 1Ds mark II in it's place :)
Why? Better AF, better definition (not just megapixels, there's loads more than go into image quality like a better AA filter, better processing of colors, higher image bitrate), better build (since i did drop my 5D did have a small crack in it's shell which always bothered me), weather sealing, better metering. Well, i'll stop with the list beacuse anyone can guess a camera which had the r.r.p. of 8000 euros is going to be better than one that had 2500, launched in the same time-period. I'm enjoying my 1Ds so far, it works wonders even with the cheapo 50mm f/1.8, it actually focuses 3 times faster and more accurately than the 5D. Imagine what it will do when i present it the 50/1.4 or 17-40 next month. I can barely wait.
