Photographer's Note

Connemara is located on the wind swept West coast of Ireland, in county Galway. This picture was taken on the way from Leenan to Kylemore abbey. It was extremely windy this day, and it looks like it's pretty common when you see this poor tree.

I tried a new style of frame, and you will find another version in the workshop with some white stripes and a title on it. I prefer this one, as it enhances the desolated (but beautiful) nature in Connemara. I also used colour balance as well as changed light, and contrast with Photoshop. For worshop enthusiasts who would like to give me a few tips on how to improve my postprocessing skills, I also include the original version in the workshop...

Can you hear the wind blow on it? ;o)
