[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Muckross House is located on the small Muckross Peninsula between Muckross Lake and Lough Leane, two of the lakes of Killarney, 6 kilometres from the town of Killarney in County Kerry, Ireland. In 1932 it was presented by William Bowers Bourn and Arthur Rose Vincent to the Irish nation. It thus became the first National Park in the Republic of Ireland and formed the basis of the present day Killarney National Park.

I like the BG comprising the hills & the lake. The cyclists have added to the overall scene. I understand that your focus is on the BG. Tfs.

Hi Francis
fine cycling scene with nice BG. good capture of motion. clear details. well composed.

Nice timing to create this composition with the cyclists adding balance to the shot and leading the eye into the distance with the lough/lake. I like the sunlight and shadow on the hills. Nice shot to aid your holiday memories.

You display the essence, the magic and the greenery of this land so well.
The rise and fall of the terrain so well shown against the hilly skyline.

So beautiful and so peaceful landscape, I hope you have also seen Ireland on the bike :)))
excellent photo regards Ryszard

Boa tarde Francis,
I have the opinion that the best title for this bucolic landscape would be taken from the Fellini film "La dolce vita".
Beautiful capture,

Bonsoir Francis,

Good image well describe by its title. It show cyclist and it shows the park. Despite the contrasty back light, you managed the exposure very well. Composition is well balanced and the subjects have room in front of them to move. Good work.
