Aashleagh Falls Creation Wars edits

Thanks everyone for the feedback on the photo, it is much appreciated and really interesting to get some different views.
+Mason Marsh I have posted the colour version for comparison - it is not a full edit but close enough. 

What I really wanted to capture in the photo was the curved flow of the water in the foreground.  I could see the path of the bubbles, so I composed to try and get a sweeping curve.  The photo was taking early evening but was quite overcast with the heavy clouds moving in.  I chose black and white to really emphasise the movement in the water, which I think doesn't come out quite as well in colour.  I also think the colour version lacks a bit of pop or drama - there was no magic light on the day.  For me, the black and white adds a bit of drama to the photo.

For the re-edit, I took your advice and took some contrast out of the sky, particularly on the blackest cloud, but still leaving it with the dramatic effect.  I also cloned out the building and the poles in the background.  The smudge in the foreground was blurring of the grass due to the length of the exposure, so I dropped in another exposure and masked in the still grass.

Thanks for the feedback,

Greig

Check out my friend +Ugo Cei on the wonderful The Candid Frame podcast.
I Was On The Candid Frame!

I am sure most of you know about The Candid Frame, +Ibarionex Perello's venerable podcast about photography. Over the course of more than 250 episodes, Ibarionex has interviewed about as many great photographers and industry experts.

So I had to pinch myself when I received an invitation from Ibarionex to be a guest on his show. I can say I was surprised and greatly honored by it.

Ibarionex is such a great interviewer and he asks all the right questions. You will certainly agree with me, if you listen to the podcast episode, that has just been released. We talked about travel, photographing in your own backyard, inspiration, gear, and other.

Now whether I was able to provide good answers to his great questions, you'll have to judge by yourself :-)

New Year, Whiterocks Beach

Another from New Year's morning on Whiterocks Beach, Killiney, Dublin, Ireland.  Just after the sun hit the horizon the clouds moved on so I switched angle and tried a few long exposures.

Dawn of the New Year
Welcoming the first sunrise of the New Year on Whiterocks Beach, Killiney, Dublin, Ireland.  Starting to become a new tradition of mine and my favourite way to start the year.
