Me encanta la profundidad del campo (no se si asi se dice "depth of field?") y el enfoque en los jovenes al frente. Mas que nada lo que me gusta es que esta foto captura la locura bella del Distrito Federal. Gracias por compartir.
Wonderfull Ireland by skerdreux (3184)

Wonderful! Love the light and the full body of that rainbow (and the faint one above it). I would have cropped those leaves out of the picture though. You can't really see the top of the second rainbow in any event, so I think the picture would have been better without the leaves. Same goes for the posts--I'd crop them out. That way you're focusing on that beautiful rainbow and the sunlit hills. (See my workshop).
Thanks for sharing.
Twelve Bens by skerdreux (3184)

Much better than the standard view from the road! I love the light on the Twelve Bens in the background. Also, the complementary colors of the heather and the yellow flowers in the right foreground are quite nice.
Slieve League View by fisher (1745)

Funny, my shot of Slieve League is my desktop on my computer right now. Absolutely love the light and the clouds here. The most dramatic light I've ever seen on Slieve League, and it's helped by the fact that the left side of the frame is covered in mist. Only thing I'd change? I'd crop out the posts from the fence. Great shot all around though.
Rolling Rapeseed by fisher (1745)

I love pictures of rapeseed fields, and this one is very nice with the low sun and those lovely clouds. However, I'm not a huge fan of the perspective--I think this would have been better on the other side of that pathway. In any event the foreground has a lot of shadows and detracts from the image somewhat. But the upper half of the image is pure perfection! :)

Hey there Olivier:
One of my biggest regrets of my Ireland trip was not going here. I have no idea why I didn't go. Still kicking myself for it.
Love this shot. You got a fantastic, very un-Irish sunny day. :) There are a few things that really stand out to me. One is the management of the light: even though it's clearly not ideal light, the picture still looks quite good. Another is the people in the picture. They really help to give it a sense of scale. The best thing about the photo, though, is the crop. Good call to do a more panoramic crop. For one, it cuts out a lot of the more boring grass and sky. For another, it emphasizes how long and low the tomb is. Really nice picture all around.

I remember this spot. Fantastic view. You got a better shot than I did--I was there in midafternoon on a half hazy, half sunny day. Love that little bit of headland in the distance, and those cottages tot he right, but my favorite part of the shot is the very Caribbean-looking water on the right.
Thanks for sharing.
Path from Neist Point II by davidsinger (3368)

My favorite kind of light: stormy in the background and brillliant late-afternoon/early-morning light in the foreground. This is a beautiful shot. My only complaint is that bit of foreground that really doesn't add anything. I'd crop the shot a bit (about an inch on the right side and half an inch on the bottom) to make it less prominent.
Otherwise, love this one.
