A very, very cool subject Patricia. So well composed and exposed, wonderful color, contrast and detail. That was a great old movie. One of my Dad's favorites. He was a big fan of "The Duke". #7711984

Patricia, your photos of Ireland's countryside display so well your love for the Land of the Leprechaun. Those little mischief-makers must have such fun popping out from under that lovely bridge to startle some unsuspecting traveler...
This beautifully composed shot has it all (thanks in part to the weather's cooperation)~ vivid colors, superb clarity, and, most definitely, charm!!
Outstanding capture! #7720626
