Hello Folks.

This time shot from my latest trip.
Connemara. One of the most beautiful part of Emerlad Island.

Early morning and Derryclare Lake, Pine Island and Twelve Pins Mountains on the background.

Hope you will like it.

I used Luko's technique for sharpening. I found these procedures from TE:

1st pass : high radius and very low effect, this one is like cleaning up your monitor with some optical wash liquid, it's like removing the "haze".

2nd pass : low radius, high effect then Darken blend mode. it increase sharpening on darker parts, as it doesn't provide any edge effect we can leave it to full 100% effect (edit/fade).

3rd pass : low radius, high effect then brighten blend mode. It will sharpen brighter parts, the cause for these white edges we can spot on too many oversharpened pix we see here and there. We will then decrease the effect to around 50% to remove or lessen these white edges.
