Thanks, this is an old one; I'd probably make the editing much more subtle now, but glad you like it :)

Thanks for the comment and interest.

This is an old picture taken on a little pocket camera and it was edited in Picasa, a free image editing suite from google.

If I was editing this picture today I would do it very differently, keep it more natural etc.

In Picasa I used a darkening graduated tint on the sky to make the clouds more visable, I warmified the picture a little, made the shadows darker and highlights brighter and then made the saturation higher. Then perhaps a little gauzy glow followed by a final sharpen and crop to finish the thing off.

Back then I saw myself as a genius for pulling something like that off with such a limited editor but as I said, now I would keep it much simpler.

Right on :) thanks.

I had been taking piles of pictures with my wee pocket camera long before I took the jump to SLR. Just make sure you are serious enough about photography before you spend (potentially) a lot of money ;)

:iconimhappyplz: U have alot of fans! Cause you are amazing at photography, and make ireland seem like the hot spot for vacation!

:D Thank you again!!

Tell pallavi that I still get bummbed out when I see so many photographs that are so much better than mine and say thanks too ;)

I don't consider myself to be that great especially when I see so many better photographers around this site alone :(

No problem! Lol.
Well i am not sure how many times you will be able to be "out classed" but anyother photographer. Well arn't you a child prodegy, cause you are trying out for a college, so ur not 50 years old and have 100 years of experiance in under ur belt =D
But Pallavi still thinks you are great! She keeps on telling me she wishes she could take amazing pictures like u. Ehehe
I take you as a profesunal!

Nah you don't need to go too far around this site to see far better photographers; photographers my own age and younger too!

There are so many branches of photography I haven't even tried yet as I know that I'm not creative enough. Seriously look through some of the popular conceptual galleries and portrait work.

I'm stuck within my comfort zone right now; I know about a few good techniques, a winning formula if you like and I could go all round the world taking similar pictures. True artists develop and right now I don't think I am developing any more :(

Thanks all the same again! I shouldn't be so hard on myself, I think my photos are interesting to say the least :D
