Just home from an awesome trip in Ireland with Renee, Deb, Jim, Dia, Rachael,Stacey and Noel.
This was shot in Cobh, Ireland.
We had to look over a rock wall to see this POV. It was beautiful and looked to have a wedding going on too.
Hand held and three photos HDR
Leaving again tomorrow will be back next week.

    Stunning Linda. What a fabulous trip you must have had. You are really seeing the country these days. I envy you.
This is beautiful and a great perspective with wonderful HDR work. Hope you were able to get inside and see this beautiful church.

Utterly wonderful, Linda. I hope you all don't travel on the same plane--the world can't risk losing ALL THAT TALENT in one go! That sounds morbid--it was just meant to be a great compliment to you all!

Photobucket Wow!!! This is incredible, Linda!!! It almost looks like you photoshopped two images together! I don't know which I like better, the Cathedral or the wonderful buildings in the foreground! The colour, clarity and detail are outstanding! Love the steeple against the magnificent sky and clouds! Awesome HDR work! :)
