A really nice shot Paddy. Ive only ever seen Kerry through windscreen wipers, or through the raindrops on a pub window!
Not a whole lot to say. Your settings are good, the light is nice, - interesting sky. It can look better, - actually any scene like this if the horizon is not in the middle, rather on a third, so with this there would be either more sky or more water.
I loaded a mod with more water, less sky, - you can do it the other way too, - or leave it if you like it. The mod is just for example.
I sharpened it a little, - heres a flow to keep in mind when loading to the web:
Original shot>sharpen>resize>save as>adjust compression to get the right file size>save as new file name>OPEN new file>check sharpness>sharpen as needed>save>upload.

Or you could just sharpen, add a warming filter and lift the shadows a little as in Mod2.
Thanks for the Mod and advise on compo. I like your mod "more water" . I will keep that in mind. I was lucky enough to get 2 dry days in Killarney and also a capture of a deer in the mountains which I have posted on photozine previous to this capture.
You need to add a description when uploading to the Critique gallery, it helps us know what you were trying to take etc. Also I wouldn't put a logo in your image when uploading here as the majority of pople are photographers and aren't interested in logos. Having said that, as logos go it is small and out of the way but probably should be in a border rather than on the image.
The image is very moody and the sky is is nice, there is foreground, midground and background interest and the depth of field also looks good. However, The horizon is a bit too central for my liking and there are some overexposed areas of the sky. Overall the image for me is a little flat and could do with some contrast. I also think that a crop from the bottom and right side would bring those rocks right into the foreground and away from being a bit too central and get the horizon back onto the bottom third making it a bit more asthetically pleasing.
I did create a mod where I cropped the bottom and right sides, adjusted the curves, lightened the rocks and removed some yellow that became apparent upon adjustment. I also the sharpened a little.
Hope this helps
Sorry about repeating Willie's comments, we must have been writing them at the same time at least my mod is the opposite with less water
I like your crop, a stepping stone effect into the picture. Over all your mod is a shape brighter version. How did you lighten the shadows on the rocks?
Nice scene Paddy. Some good advice from Willie and Dave. With those rocks I would have tried to separate the two on the right. Also I would clone out tehone breaking the frame on the left. The one next to it is not ideally placed, too far over to the left but I am not sure there is anything you could do about it. Picky I know, but the detail all adds to the shot.
There is really nothing wrong with this. technically first rate I think. My problem is subjective - I'm not generally a landscape photographer or fan, and, good though this is, nothing in the content makes it jump out at me.
