Hello Folks.

As we have few days off in Ireland we are not sitting at home ;)
This is magnificent view from Hill of Slane.

Hill of Slane is place of great symbolic flare by St. Patrick. Home to 15th century Slane Abbey. St. Patrick lit his Pascal Fire on the Hill of Slane, in direct opposition to the pagan beliefs of the High King.

Wide angle thanks to 10mm by Sigma.

Hope you will like it.

Hola Janek.
El tratamiento dado a esta imagen hace que la escena sea más impactante, más tétrica...un cementerio de película, je.
Buen encuadre amigo.
Saludos, JL.

Hello Janek
Good use of the 10/20 lens - one of my favorate lenses! Good pov - and a sky to die for - but IMHO perhaps just little too mich HDR/saturation for this scene?
Anyway - a great composition.
Regards, Leslie

Good evening Janek

A really eyecatxching composition from this famous place. You have done a really excellent job with the sky behind, the great colors and very sharp details, not to mention the carefully taken POV. Very good indeed.


mind blowing excellent piece of work

Przypomina mi to kregi kamienne Janecki:)
Chyba bardzo charakterystyczne na Wyspach...
W szerokim kacie wyglada wspaniale, nawet chmury ulozyly sie, dopasowujac ksztalt do tematu i widze, ze miales pieronsko trudne swiatlo ale wyszlo OK.
Jak dla mnie to super praca.

Tam co pisales... spieszylem i nie mialem czasu na tlumaczenie na polski... wiec nie ma:):):)
A jezeli chodzi o pierscienie macro to wspaniala zabawa. Jezeli ktos bedzie chcial Ci wmowic, ze pierscien pracuje tylko z prime lens to kaz mu sie stuknac w czolko - pracuje z kazdym oprocz szerokiego.

Hi Janek:
I must say you are getting great photos with your wide angle lens ... I love the way you get the visual perspective out and the 3 dimensional effect you achieve... well done as usual... thanks Roman:0)

Bonjour Hans Kloss.
Superbe sujet à photographier.
Ce cimentière est une vrai œuvre d’inspiration et tu as bien su en profiter pour faire cette belle image.
Félicitation pour ce beau coup d’œil.
Bonne journée

Ps j’aurai enlevé un peu le dominant de bleu dans le blanc des nuages.

Czesc! Doskonale wykorzystujesz owe sigmowskie 10 mm. Swietny kadr - kompozycja i kolory na medal.
Pozdrawiam, Ewa

Hi Janek..nice surrealistic shot...great tones and details...I am assuming this is an HDR shot done with Photomatix...is that right?


Greetings Janek Kloss,
A perfect POV, shows the ruins of the Abbey to its best advantage,it also appears that the graveyard is attended to&the graves are clear of weeds etc & the grass is shaped & cut. The image looks a little dark on my monitor ,but that may be the effect you intended,due to the images subject matter.I could not resist doing a WS though, & now I'm not sure if making it lighter takes away the mood you achieved?

Almost like HRD.
I like the strong colour tones.

Czesc Janek.
To jest genialne. Kompozycja cudna z tym szerokim katem. Swietne kolory, ciekawe niebo. Naprawde same plusy.

Bonjour Janek,

Je préfère cette vue qui nous montre en totalité cet endroit!!!
Certes le ciel a moins d'attrait mais il est cependant très intéressant, il donne l'impression d'entourer toute la plaine!!!
