Clouds over Carrowmore in County Sligo, Ireland, the second largest cemetery of megalithic tombs in Europe and among Ireland's oldest. Archaeologists have found over 65 tombs, stone circles, passage graves and standing stones. The site is thought to be over 700 years older than the spectacular Newgrange, which was built in 3200BC.

I like the infra red effect on this one.

Another one; Three frame stitch, taken from Champagne Ridge, on the eastern edge of the Great Rift Valley.  Only 30km or so from downtown Nairobi, amazingly enough.

I agree. How about this one (colour and b&w versions):

Like you, Lois, I haven't removed the cables. They're visible and slightly irritating but I think it would be a lot of work.

Jeremy,

The colour one is great... love the subtle colours, very English and restrained.  I wouldn't worry about the power lines.  They are an authentic feature of the English landscape, unfortunately.

Thanks, Ed. I think you're right about the colour being better than the b&w on this occasion (my wife thinks so too!). Actually, it's Ireland but the comment about the power lines holds good!

This is a very problematic shot because it was taken through a bus window as the bus was turning around. I bracketed 3 shots in aperture priority mode because the scene was obviously very bright, and I used ISO 200 and F5.6 so all three shots would have a high shutter speed. However, the bus was moving when I took the shots, and Merge to HDR does not produce a satisfactory result.

This is a preliminary result which I'm not entirely satisfied with. Any helpful suggestions would be appreciatred.

The location is St Issac's Cathedral in St Petersburg.

Lovely - I like both versions. I think we have to learn to live with the rash of human interventions in the rural landscape - especially with continuous-tone type subjects where cloning tends to be very obtrusive.

It doesn't need for anything - it is a delight to the eye!

Here's an "equivalent" of my own. The relative humidity was just high enough to show the sunrays. I don't usually shoot clouds but I couldn't pass this one up.
