Dublin Broadstone Revisited—Four new views February 2018.

Five years ago I featured Dublin’s Broadstone Station that was historically Midland Great Western’s Dublin terminal.

Today, the new LUAS Cross City tram line skirts the front of the historic building in a purpose-built cutting.

I visited this much altered location on a bright morning, aiming to feature a LUAS tram in the sun with the old station.

Beyond Broadstone, the tram line has re-used the old railway right of way to reach its terminus at Broombridge.

Photos exposed using my FujiFilm X-T1 with 18-135mm zoom lens.

The bright wall in the cutting combined with the lightly coloured stone on the station façade along with the silver tram complicated my exposures, because these reflected more light than normally expected for a Dublin city scene.

Exposed at f14 at 1/500th second (ISO 400).
Exposed at f10 at 1/500th second ISO 400. A typical exposure in Dublin sunlight with this camera lens combination would be f8 at 1/500th second (ISO 400).
