ABOUT THE TITLE
While watching this photo I noticed these two couples walking the beach and it made me think about that comedy Couples Retreat.
Couples Retreat (2009) A comedy centered around four couples who settle into a tropical-island resort for a vacation. While one of the couples is there to work on the marriage, the others fail to realize that participation in the resort's therapy sessions is not optional...
ABOUT THE PLACE
The photo was taken in the not far from Sligo town in County Sligo at the northern tip of the place called Rosses Point. Right on the horizon you can spot a characteristic shape of the Ben Bulben Mountain.

The wide open space of the beach and surrounding landscape well enhanced by the use of a wide angle. Beautiful grey brown colours under a sculpted sky. The house and thepeople provide attention points and give depth and scale.

I repetion regular that Ireland be a wonderful country for photographers.
Again a nice picture without people of other disturbing elements.
Lovely place for a good stroll or a small trip with the mountainbike, without sounds of cars and planes, alone the sound of the sea.
Excellent composition, nice of colors, sharpness and clarity are perfect seen.
Very well done, TFS.

a very nice panorama of this irish coast, great d.o.f. and colors. I like the partly cloudy sky.
Kielia (23777) 2010-08-18 5:08
a fascinating and very well captured scene.
Your note is very nice too and made me smile to myself. Very interesting atmosphere of the lonely beach with the two couples. The POV is excellent and yes – this sight looks like a scene from a movie. TFS!

Nice pov overlooking the wide and nearly empty beach, it is luminous and we get a good impression of size and volume, it gets even bigger thanks to the few people braving the elements
Have a nice day JY

A breathtaking view using yr powerful wide angle featuring this beach with a sky full of dramatic clouds. Great dof and depth with spectacular details sharpness. Interesting light in this wonderful atmosphere and well managed exposure. Marvelous colour and saturation, the human figs really standout. Creative ideas in conveying yr message. Congrats and thks for sharing

un'altra immagine capolavoro, una composizione di grande impatto con un cielo che sembra tridimensionale ed una qualità impressionante.
Un carissimo abbraccio e tanti complimenti.

Good evening Mariusz,
I find interesting the choice of your title and the explanation justifying it. Excellent point of view and framing. I appreciate the clearness and the depth of the photograph. I like the light and the sky.
Have a good evening

an impressive view, incredible depth and high definition, beautiful scenery and beautiful details
ifege (10225) 2010-08-18 20:25
The only problem for your couples retreat Maruisz is the black sand as most tropical islands have pure white sand. Nevertheless a good stark coastal photo.
AKITA (15125) 2010-08-18 20:50
a beautiful wide view picture of rather wild rocks and sand shore,
this cool feeling is surely characteristic in Ireland maybe,
wide sand beach with some couples looks like floating bottom of ocean,
deep blue sea and dramatic cloudy sky are matching this scenery well,
thank you for your excellent shot,
BluSimo (9392) 2010-08-18 22:47
this place I think is adapt to that type of reflections suggested by the film you have said. the wide and silent natural spaces succeed to make to see the things more obvious. yours it is an impression that I share for this photo. the two couples make the difference in this wonderful seascape. a greta photo, compliments.
have a nice day
jafadabret (56501) 2010-08-18 23:07
Encore une très belle photo sur l'Irlande comme tu en as le secret. J'aime cette lumière si particulière entre deux averses sur ce paysage qui est resté sauvage. Le ciel est aussi remarquable.
Urs (14082) 2010-08-18 23:18
A very dramatic sky and a huge beach with a few people for good measurement - a great scene finely captured. Good light management producing vibrant color hues. The mood looks like a storm is coming up. Well done. Thanks for your critique of my paddy field shot. Yes, I uploaded a couple of paddy field shots I like very much but now I changed back to candid action shot. A bit later it will be beach scenes.
josepmarin (57831) 2010-08-19 0:43
The HDR has created a great graphical power and a good dramatic quality on the sky and on the clouds.
The landscape of this Irish coast is spectacular, and your high POV and your framing increase its great beauty.
And, of course, the scene of the couples walking peacefully along this beach is a very important element in your composition.
An excellent work, with a technical impeccable execution.
delpeoples (53421) 2010-08-19 2:16
Hi Mariusz, now this place looks familliar...almost as much as Benbulben in the BG. Everything the photo is so crisp and clean, the lines, the light, the depth. The landscape forat really brings out the vastness and isolation of the area in conjunction with the tiny people walking on the beach. I must check out that movie too, thanks for the recommendation and have a great day, Lisa
riclopes (35577) 2010-08-19 3:06
Olá M, I like the story you suggested for this image. A good walk on the beach can do miracles in a couple ;-) Very nice vantage point of view. I love the vastness of this imense beach and the couples give the proper sense of scale making it bigger than I could realize. The one in blue at left stands out nicely. The cloudy sky is enhancing too. I imagine that even in the peak of summer might not be enough warm for a dip...
prabut (3548) 2010-08-19 6:56
Bardzo ladna, szeroka, nadmorska panorama. Interesujaco wygladają te dwie spacerujace pary na pustej plazy. Pieknie wyeksponowane chmury nadaja klimat temu zdjeciu.

Hello MAriusz ,
What a splendid wild beach ! I suppose that it is not the perfect place for swimming ! The POV is excellent , as the wild view . I like the depth , too ,and the superb sky .
Fante (5429) 2010-08-19 12:54
amazing panoramic view on this coast. This is a real treasure. Perfect composition with good DOF and excellent sharpness. Beautiful colors and colors contrast. Bravo
paololg (31448) 2010-08-19 14:30
Ciao dear Mariusz,
you have captured a beautiful photo, it to admire in every pixel! Endless DOF and pleasant feeling of great opened spaces, in contact with the sea and the nature. Excellent work, dear friend!
Ciao, have a nice Friday!
adramad (38918) 2010-08-19 14:40
Woow! Superb landscape you show us today, this great and lonely Wonderful beach with this arid coast and mountains flattened at the bottom, the sky has an active part in such a beautiful composition. A great place.
As always very good image quality, nice color and excellent light management.
yquem46 (38746) 2010-08-19 14:44
The image really takes its full value only when one opens the thumbnail
The seascape is superb with natural colors, a perfect exposure and is nicely composed
Bravo for this excellent one

I jak sie skończył pobyt na rajskiej wyspie tych czterech małżeństw? Nie słyszałam o tym filmie. Ta plaża nie przypomina tropikalnej, krajobraz bardzo surowy, ciemny piasek, chyba zimno. czy tam kiedykolwiek mozna sie opalać i kapać? Fajny kadr i tytuł. Pozdrawiam
Graal (98351) 2010-08-19 23:46
fajny nadmorski krajobraz. Widac tutaj dzialanie plywow. Te spacerujace parki ozywiaja ten obraz. Bdb jakosc zdjecia.
macjake (57490) 2010-08-20 9:04
its funny how a scene with "space" can make a photo look larger, even though its the same size frame.
the open beach really gives that appearance and feeling of large vastness.
and the people walking along give it that needed human element that makes it so relateable.
and of course i love the clouds...
AiresSantos (56155) 2010-08-20 22:28
Hi dear friend Mariusz
Amazing cloudy sky. I like a lot the atmosphere
Excellent sharpness and depth
Have a nice weekend
Longroute (19396) 2010-08-25 0:54
Great perspective here and a vast sense of infinite distance which makes the image very pleasant to see and to explore. The particular shape of this beach with the surrounding hills and the lonely house in the distance create an appealing landscape eriched by a very dramatic sky. The whole scene reminds one of wintertime but with the benefit of a fine light.
Very evocative and informative as well.
A good quality job as often in your case.
korbee (6617) 2010-08-28 3:35
Beautyfull picture Mariusz with some enormous depth thanks to the people on the beach and the clouds.
What I like the most is the combintion of dark and light places.
s_lush (16134) 2010-09-05 7:30
This picturesque beach looks very romantically and deserted enough to be suable as a retreat for loving couples. The beautiful sky makes this place being extremely attractive. Absolutely excellent shot!
andywo (4725) 2010-11-01 10:25
Piekna oceaniczna plaza a tam w glebi widac chyba Benbulben. Urocze strony, chetnie bym sie tam znowu wybral i wybral na spacer wlasnie w takie miejsca. Malownicze niebo i swietny uklad kadru.
Podoba mi sie.
