Nicely composed and presented. Quite a view with great depth of field and lighting.
The person ready to fly gives perspective to the enormity of the location.
Nice point of view, really works well here.

A really great capture!! A fabulous scene! TFS and have a great day!

I see that you used a Polarizer here. For a moment I was wondering if you maybe you could have used a SND filter instead.
Split Neutral Density filters will be able to make the bright sky a little darker, so that you might capture some contrast or atleast some color there.
I think these filters are very nice for images like this and they come in different varieties...

Anyway, apart from this I must say that I really like the feel this image gives me... the freeling of freedom.
I love the view you show us here and again I say to you that I WILL come to Ireland one day...
Your pictures make Ireland move up to # 1 on my list!


Czesc Janek.
To jest naprawde swietne. Sam widok zapiera dech a w polaczeniu ze swietna poza twojej coreczki tworzy sie cos ekstra. Super optymistyczny klimat.
