Looks like you are shooting in VLR [Very Low Resolution], Tom.
Tom Wilson: The original was very over-exposed - I think I'd nudged the exposure control knob accidentally smile So this was recovery strategy!
Your coloring makes this look so pretty!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth

This is as green as you would expect Ireland to be
Tom Wilson: The Emerald Isle is well-named!
What a fine spot and shot.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Jacquelyn.
You at least know it's not during the winter months, Tom. grin
Tom Wilson: Apart from the trees, I guess it's not much different in winter!
What a lovely spot! I quite like your treatment here.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard - an area with an interesting history from Stone Age man to the Battle of the Boyne.
Lovely light on the river Tom.
Tom Wilson: It was certainly a lovely day.
I like the river sparkling through the lush greenery Tom
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Janet.

The weather has a silvery look to it.
Tom Wilson: I suspect that's the result of my trying to save a badly exposed shot, Louis! smile

The lovely, green and pastoral England- even the sheep can be seen - I like this treatment very much.
Tom Wilson: Ireland, actually, Philine - the Emerald Isle smile

Oh, I'm planning a journey to Ireland and North-Ireland (I want to see Belfast, too)in 2016 - God willing.
Tom Wilson: There are certainly some interesting places to see, Philine. Close to Dublin are Glendalough - and ancient site and Powerscourt House, with beautiful gardens and, of course, north of Dublin, Newgrange. In Dublin, Trinity College old Library and the National Museum are musts and the Martello Tower that features at the start of James Joyce's Ulysses. I haven't spent as much time in Belfast, but nearby is Mount Stewart, one of the family homes of Lord Londonderry, now with the National Trust - it's gardens are also very beautiful. The Lonely Planet guide to Ireland is useful.
