    Hi Fred
    Very nice, a very interesting place, and a great way to present it. Placing the tower off centre to the left, and these bushy trees to the right give the idea of those at the top of the tower looking out over the land. The evening light at this angle has brought out beautiful colors in everything. Looking at that sky, are you sure this is ireland?

    Hi JC
    That is a very cool picture. The castle in foreground matches the town behind very well, but the building in the centre is like an intruder in the photo, perhaps photobombing the shot. But I like it very much, its stark contrast to its surroundings, but it looks great. From, this angle it almost looks like it is peeping around the corner, the future looking from behind the past. Wonderful light and sky too.
    cheers

    Hi Chris
    I bet this restaurant would love to see this picture, such a cool building and I would never expect this castle style structure to be a restaurant! I couldn't help but try some food in a place like this..

    Hi Pierre
    The sepia is really great here and makes this a scene from another age. I know this hotel well and have enjoyed a beer on occasion in it, but I've never seen it presented like this.

    Hi Veronique
    What a cool reflection of the city and blue hour, and you've placed all the elements so well inside the scene. The combination of blue and gold reminds me of royalty and makes your photo pleasantly opulent

    Great view of this colourful town worth great textural details too. The way you've placed the town against the faraway hills creates a brilliant sense of depth and distance

    Hi Neyvan
    Brilliant sky, so much activity and it is such a great sight above this vast, seemingly endless landscape. The slight reflection on the calm water does a great job to brighten up the darker area below

    Hi Ataman
    Great golden tones which compliment the touch of green nicely and give a cool regal feel to your photo. The light looks incredibly difficult and you've used it really nicely to create a great air of mystery and suspense.

    Hi Mariusz
    That's a fine sculpture and with a brilliant blue sky. The weather looks calm but I guess that many of Cooks experiences would have been much harder weather than this. Great composition and I love how he gazes out to sea. Perfect TE post.

    This is a simple but powerful image, especially combined with your note and the words, there is nothing left but resurrection. Powerful imagery. Thanks add always

    Hi Ourania
    That boat is so tiny and the shape of the island is like a big alligator about to munch it up, very cool photo. I never remember to shoot photos when I fly, but I should, the results are so cool

    Hi Bev
    That's really cool :) I must admit I lost interest in the Harry Potter films after the third one but I did love the special effects and the castles so it's a pleasure to see this beautiful castle in the company of a cool tree and wonderful bluebells. Very cool post

    Hi Will
    That's a rare moment, not a mobile in sight and what a great thing that is, I say as i write this on my mobile :) your depth of field is really nicely done and as ever, a great choice on black and white.
    I just walked into a hospital to visit my dad, and there were four nurses on the front desk. Three of them were tapping away on their mobiles!

    Were the band any good? The empty chairs would suggest not but perhaps everybody was at work :) I can't blame you if you are cynical, the politicians in Ireland are a shower of idiots too, nothing but broken promises

    Hi John
    Wonderful clouds over this beautiful land, I can almost feel the wind in my face looking at this. Your light and colors are stunning too. You really do visit some amazing parts of the world.
    I met Lisa yesterday too, we had a great little walk around Dublin and went to newgrange. I believe you will meet her too soon! I send my warmest wishes to you with Lisa :)

    Hi Pierre
    That's a very unusual style of building for a presbytery, it looks more like a 1950s school building. Interesting architectural post. Unusual name too. That is a saints name I've never heard before

    Hi Petar
    What an amazing skyline and I particularly love the sun reflecting on the right third, that glint adds so much to your photo. The lens curve makes it look like the city is following the curve of the planet, so it seems like a shot a dense city planet. Really cool.
    Cheers
