[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Photo taken in Ireland at Loop Head in the Lower Shannon regio. ALmost all visitors go to the clifs of Moher but a few miles south are the cliffs at Loop Head. The advantage: Less tourism and more freedom to move around.

Hello Niek. Beautiful scenery, good POV and depth. I like Ireland my self, itís a good place to visit, fantastic landscapes and friendly people.

All the best, Anders

A nice scene which in MHO has more potential than you took advantage of. A couple of things I notice are:
1. Too much sky; not enough foreground
2. The horizon line is not horizontal
3. The horizon line is exactly in line with the top of the bluff creating a static horizontal line that bisects the
photo. If you had lowered your position the two bluffs would have created a dynamic line.
4. There needs to be more contrast. There is too much midtone

It is a nice scene. If you live closeby try taking it again. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Niek...
This weather beaten landscape is quite awesome! But still there are flowers to be observed... It is a well composed image, where the surf adds life... I also appreciate the people to the left side to give scale, never thought the dimensions were what they actually are...

Hello Niek, this is a nice shot of some interesting landscape. I agree with Evelynn about the horizon, I think it does need a little rotation to get the sea level. I also think it needs some more foreground interest. It's a nice shot though, well done.

Very much the Irish weather Niek, best to use a grad filter and make the best of these moody skies. Good composition but watch your horizons - keep them straight. Regards Steve.

Ireland is one of my favorite land.
This picture give me the athmosphere of ireland.
