Crowds in Temple Bar, Dublin

Continuing my run of Ireland images – this shot was taken in the Temple Bar area of Dublin.  I wanted to get an image which gave an idea of what the crows were like there.

Technically it is not an easy shot to get, I’m using a telephoto lens to make the scene more crowded than it really is.  That means I had to wait for a gap in the crown to ‘look through’ and still have an interesting subject to focus on.  I had a lot of attempts and this was the best I could manage.  With hindsight it would have been a much better shot if I could have got the couple holding hands in focus.
