Goward Dolmen

By garymcparland    
The second in my series of Dolmens, This granite dolmen of around the 3rd millennium B.C is located about 2 miles north-east of Hilltown, Co Down.
Its largest stone is the enormous capstone which has fallen sideways, revealing the megalithic chamber it once covered, in which a cremation urn and a flint arrowhead were found in 1834. Stones standing independently at the eastern side of the monument suggest that it may once have had a forecourt facade like a court-tomb.

I gave it similar treatment as the previous image in PS to try to give it an ethereal look.

Viewed large is best Smile

Thanks everyone.

Merille it starts life as a HDR image which is created in a program called Photomatix, if you google it you will find plenty of info on creating HDRs. I then just play around with Hue and saturation in PS and do a bit of dodging and burning.
It seems to work well with these types of subjects.
