Glendalough is the celtic name for the glen with two lakes,its the biggest tourism attraction in ireland this shot is the upper and bigger of the two lakes,between the two lakes a monastic city established in the 6th century by saint kevin,consisting of many stone churches and the most famous round tower in ireland,you must admit if were to built a reteat to get away from it all you would select this in the heart of county wicklow,unofficially named the garden of ireland

I like the composition here. The stones on the center give a focal point. Though the light a little harsh, but you still able to manage the metering. Just a slight post processing in the sky that imo need to be smoother

Nice view Jimmy of approching summer in Ireland. To be honest though the horizon is a little tilted to the left - even allowing for the wide angle end of the lens. Also the focus seems a little soft on the trees in the distance even though it's pin sharp at the front of the shot. I don't know what aperture you used here as there's no exif data but f9 or f11 probably work well for the DOF here.


James i realy like the pov on this shot the way the stones lead us into the image is a grt idea as for comments on the horizion i expect this was the way nature intented to be and it look s fine to me

Hello James,

I like how you have grabbed immediate attention with the f/g rocks and their swirling foam.
Beyond, there is a fine vista, with a natural 'v', acting as a funnel to channel our eyes.
It's a beautifl, tranquil scene, captured with a fine wide angle.

A little increase in saturation would lift the colours, just a tad.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
