Hi Folks.

This time Kilclooney Dolmen. An impressively large and substantially complete portal tomb. One of the "best" exist in Ireland. A very fine example of a megalithic portal tomb.

This is also my first HDR made from 3 pictures.

Hope you will like it.

Hi Janek,
A very interesting POV. You have captured it from a very good angle to make it outstanding, having it against the sky. A good use of the rule of thirds. All in all a lovely image in great collours and sharpness. And a nice simple but effective frame to finish off.

Great picture, the composition and P.O.V. are excellent. Your picture has very nice vivid colors. Well done.

Good HDR work and an impressive capture of an amazing construction. A shame perhaps that there's no way of measuring its scale, but it looks suitably large, and you probably didn't want some tourist standing beside it ruining your photo.
Great job.

very nice POV .The colors are wonderful!
Good work! TFS. Nil.

good low pov! i love the contrast on the clouds.. good details on the FG too... except for the flares..=(..

Hi Janek,

Excellent shot, great colours, I like your pov and composition here, against the sun but captured a great details here, nice hdr photo, nice work!

Have a nice day,


Hi Janek:
Congradulations on your First HRD which you have done so well...
I like your super POV on this!!!

|Very good work indeed Janek.
Usually I'm not a particular fan of HDR images, because they tend to look unnatural, but this one looks really good.
No overdone colors and details.
Besides, I think this is a wonderful composition.


olá Janek

great composition wth beautiful light and colours. Congratulation.

My regards

What a great POV !
Wonderful piece of work !!!

ps.Sorry, I've switched off the points

Czesc Janku,
To zdjecie momentalnie przenioslo mnie w czasy druidow. Rewelacja, a i HDR wyszedl Ci calkiem, calkiem ;) Cala kompozycja prezentuje sie imponujaca. Swietne kolory i ostrosc, no i ciekawy temat. Znakomita praca, gratulacje!

Czolem Janecki.
Fajny dolmen, ladnie pokazany. Super sprawa z tym HDR'em. Bardzo dobrze wyszlo. Zastanawiam sie czy musiales walczyc z tlumem i barierami wokol kamyka czy to tylko w Clare takie cuda?

Hi Janek,
What an incredible view! Incredible looking sky
and the rest looks simply amazing. Terrific job!
Love it!

Best regards,

Amazing work Janek!

Nicely done, Janek. Great subject. (I know it a bit from signal-womb's work). Nice perspective, and the HDR worked very well for brining out details across the whole range. Well done.
