Scenic Places In Cork?

    I want to shoot a few rolls of film this week with my new SLR and was wondering if anyone here can suggest something worthy of exposure on film? Ideally I'd want to get there by bus and not have it too far from the city. While I'm at it do the photographers of Cork have any particular recommendations as to where you should get film developed? Usually I just go to the local chemist but if there's savings to be had maybe I can shift alliegance :D

    The view of Cork from Bruce College (Patricks Hill) at night is very nice. St Finbarres is the only real pretty building... Dunno really

    If you travel around Sundays Well too you'd get some nice shots down towards the city. I've often been up there just as it's getting dark and wished I had my camera with me.

    Theres an absolute load of nice buildings around anyway so you'll not be at a loss for something to shoot.

    Developing is usually fine in a local chemist type setup and as most of the work is completely automated theres little room for error, presuming of course the minlab is maintained properly and has its daily checks. Having worked in several photolabs though I have seen it all go pearshaped numerous times. Lets just say some people don't seem to know what colour balance is :D

    Normally in a chemist if you request a matte finish on your prints, the negs will be sent to Spectra for processing. That may well ensure you get decent prints back; assuming of course you want a matte finish in the first place.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I went to Currabinny and the woods in the end, I'll take a look at those sites, prehaps it can give me a few more ideas.

    I hear you, recently I had a clerk at one photoshop tell me that some of my film was 'damaged' in an accident! The lady there wanted to charge me full price for three quarters of my prints too!
