The Giant's Causeway

P5190121-Edit.jpg

A shot taken at the beautiful Giant's Causeway of N.Ireland; a wonder to be at, a wonder to see, and a wonder to shoot!

Let me know your thoughts

PS. Sorry for the small image, I'm not familiar with uploading/inserting a full size image here.

Re: The Giant's Causeway

Nicely captured, leading up through the picture, through the figure to the moon, all in perfect alignment. Very well done.

I'm just a little unsure whether I actually like the figure in the picture.

Wonderful shot. The figure adds interest and a sense of scale.

Re: The Giant's Causeway

Fantastic shot. Would love to see a larger version, the one here and on Instagram doesn't do it justice. It needs to be seen large on a poster IMHO

Thanks, I generally use a figure to add a bit of scale/context

Thank you, but I am not too familiar with how to post the full res version here. I would also love to print it out large, but not sure how large it could print, never printed at large scale.

Smile Re: The Giant's Causeway

The Giants causeway at dusk are 13 to the dozen. Your human element separates it from those.

However, I would try to recover more from the dark area just below the person.

Take a look at this. and you may see what I mean.

I'd would happily hang your picture on the wall
