[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As I wrote with my previous photo, I am running out of good photos. I am still happy enough to post this photo, eventhough there are some OE spots on the waves. 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.

Hi Niek
Beautiful scenery you captured, Good POV, although I feel that the horizon line need to be more in level.

TFS and best wishes.

Hi Niek,
A beautiful capture of this wild and rugged coastline!
Lovely colours in blueish tones, very pleasing surf...
Nicely composed with good framing!

Hi Niek, wonderful shot, excelent POV and coloures. TFS

I like the composition ...the jagged landforms jutting into the sea. I feel the land is a little undersaturated compared with the sky. Did you enhance the sky? The sky color seems a little off in comparison with the sea. I'm aware of this because I recentlly had a painting I did critiqued by my teacher...the only negative was that the sky was not in the same family of blues as the water...as it would be in nature. I however, liked my painting the way it was, and you probably like your photo the way it is...so... : )

Excellent landscape pic. Great composition, well seen and done. Thanks Niek.


Hi Niek

Lovely capture of the coastline. I bet you get some pretty rough seas pounding against the cliff face. Nice work. :-)

I like this shot because we can feel the rough weather. Horizon is more or less well defined because of the haze. The picture taken with quite a long focal lenght amplify this effect. The strong wind creates waves and a lot of white tips on waves. There is really a cool feeling in this picture.
Good shot and TFS.

Lovely capture Niek, must check this place out for myself this June when I shall venture down that way. Well done.

You haven't posted anything new recently, so I decided to have a play with your irish coast - I hope you don't mind. I though tat it had probably been scanned adn had quite a bit of noise in the sky and the colours seemed a little faded, so, well see what you think.

I only 'play' with pictures I like, so take this the way it is meant, as a compliment..
I love the irish coast and have been there myself many times, and editting photos beats writing websites anytime...


Dear friend Niek,
Love this composition specially the way you have
"framed" it. It is so pleasant to see those waves;
reminds me of Terceira in the Azores. Just like Terceira with jagged platforms.
Best regards,

how are you doing my friend,
I have been so much busy, but sometimes around, and trust me I've seen your gallery a lot and show to people how great you are with a camera.
Keep well my friend, and all the best for 2007,
Warm Regards,

Hello Niek,
An interesting photo of these wild cliffs. The visible haze and waves add some climate to the shot.
Well done!
Best greetings and TFS,
