Photo Information for At Heavens Gate

Thanks. It might have been the colors, or the pints, that inspired me...

The original photo had a red Alfa in it. I thought I had a similar low angle shot of my car, but mine was from the opposite side and from a tad higher.  So I converted to RHD (it being appropriate to the locale) and brought my car a bit more forward (lower in the shot) to compensate. I used a machine learning filter to color correct my pic to fit the image’s palette. Then just normal photo editing fun.

the Alfa is stunning but I still like the black on black.  A bit "dark".  An alley you would not to be lost in after dark.


Second look: the Alfa competes with and dominates the  photo. The black '02 against the black gates pulls it all together, centers the viewer on the gold lettering with the "gold" lines acting like a pointer.

Funny how your photo looks more realistic than the Alfa one, well done. It’s a UK rather than an Irish plate on the Alfa, but not unusual to see a UK car in Dublin I guess. Still looks oddly shrunken to me.

I’d expect a reversed US plate would to be rarer then... 🙃


Funny you say that, when I was lining things up for the edit I thought the Alfa looked a bit too small in the shot myself.  Hmmm - I wonder if I’ve chopped a chop? I’ll dig around - though I suspect that might be a well-photoed location...

I googled the reg number out of curiosity and it turns out it seems to be legit, it’s part of a set. I think the road goes up and down in a funny way which makes the perspective of the car look a bit wrong, also it’s highly processed. Still prefer yours !

Cool, thanks.


My own bit of searching on photos of this gate didn’t turn up any car shoots. I agree that it’s a very neat street right there...  it looks quite different based on the perspective, lighting, and angles.  It appears mainly pedestrian (tourists) traffic, few cars - might’ve had to have been swift to grab the shot and go.  Couple examples..


Wonder where I might virtually drive next... 😁

Just tap in the car plate number in Google image search... weu 683L


I’ll have to visit next time I’m home, I’ve never been even though I’ve lived there half my life !


I’m sure if you ask the members you’ll get plenty of suggestions !
