In "Navvy by the Liffey", he shows how to bring out the best in a night image taken of an historic statue on the Quays with the iconic Custom House in the background overlooking the dark waters of the river Liffey. Global and local adjustments, cloning out unwanted details, bringing out clarity and detail in shadow areas - you'll be editing like a pro in no time!

Then, in "O'Connell Street Bridge Light Trails", Joe shows you how to combine several traffic trail shots from the world famous O'Connell Street Bridge into a spectacular final composite image which will get admiration from everyone who sees such an image.
