A photo I took back in Ireland 2004

When I got home from my trip to the Emerald Island I showed my friends my photos. They liked the majority of them. Granted I had some errrrrrrrrrrrrrr shots. Well on of the shots they did not like the most and so I just put it my my scrap pile. So the yesterday I was looking through my photos and I saw it again and thought, my friends were crazy. What do you all think.

Doesn't look bad to me. Composition-wise it's a bit drab, maybe, a shot a bit longer down the road might have given you a better contrast of land and water. It's not remarkable but it's not bad either.

It's not bad at all Justin! To improve it though it could perhaps do with brightness and contrast turning up a bit as it's slightly too dark at the minute (which is easily changed) and if you'd moved just a bit closer (say to the end of the tyre tracks) it might have been a more exciting photo as it sort of lacks a focal point at the minute (Slightly more difficult to change unless you've got a time machine!). But that's all I would suggest to improve it

What camera did/do you use by the way?

It reminds me of this guy I know that's a professional photographer (award winning). He specializes in landscapes where the color is really saturated but the sky is dark, usually with billowing clouds like that. I happen to like this style a lot, so I like your photo.

Here is an example of his.

Here is my attempt

I kinda agree with Canadiens - and his suggestion to go further down the road is actually a great one. you'd get closer to the cliffs that look interesting but too far away, and you'd get more of the sea in the shot.

It's not bad, but it doesn't really have much of a subject or leading line to grab hold of the viewer. It's definitely pretty scenery, but it's kinda hard to tell what we're supposed to look at. Maybe if you'd gotten down a little lower, or just tilted the lens down a little more, the old road could've provided a better line through the shot. With the professional example Lies posted, the truck and the road play a more prominent part and give the viewer a better starting point to work through the image.

That guy is really good Lies, who is he?

Also Justin, you have lots of potential, I can see what type of portrait you where attempting to create.

Lies, I still look at your Mt. Kilimanjaro pic and the concert pics are to die for!
