I saw this on the cover of the April edition of Popular Photography. We were taking a trip to Ireland so I thought I would try to emulate it. It's not as nice as the cover photo but I'm happy with it. BTW, it's a happening place.

Bob - what a great shot! It's full of life and color. Love the lighting on the brick. I don't remember the cover shot on the mag, but i really like this one. Good job!

Excellent view of the place! I love the light in this, the activity, the richness of the colors - you picked the right time of day. Very nicely done, in my opinion!

This looks familiar. I thought I saw this in Popular Photography that featured this bar in Ireland. Maybe I'm wrong. Anyways, I like the corner perspective that show the people going about their business. Looks like a night shot, if so, it's incredibly clean. I like the red color of the bar. I like the "busy-ness" of the image; personally, it draws me into the picture like perhaps I'm part of it. The signs, plants, people give it lots of visual interest. I don't think a viewer can be "bored" with this picture. Well done.

I found the article in PopPhoto/April issue about capturing Dublin in three days...

Nice street scene, perfectly captures the typical British / Irish (in this case) pub.

The shot, while not being particularly outstanding does have good colours and is well composed.
