This is Hook Lighthouse in Wexford which I never tire of photographing.
I always wanted a B/W shot but never get good contrasts, my shots always look grey and insipid.
Charles very kindly offered to convert the shot below for me and here is the result.
Charles I think it is wonderful, you changed the mood completely, love the strong contrasts, the wave looks so "white" and I love the grainy texture in the sky..
Yeah I really love this... Thank you so much Charles ...

    Now if I was clever I would add a link to Charles's own site but I am utterly useless.... I would say most of you know him anyway, an excellent photographer!

    classically composed, and framed masterfully---tranquility to the 10th--the contrast of tones, with the rest of the landscape ia so well seen and captured
