Taken during a recent visit to Aidan's home in Bantry Bay, Ireland. I have used Aperture 3 to edit the image and have kept it fairly simple by using the present B&W with red filter and then the Toy cross-process tool.

Please let me know your comments so I can improve my photography...much appreciated.

I like the shot, and mono suits it. Im not familiar with Aperture, so dont know if the effects you wanted turned out as planned.

Theres a couple of comments I can make. The composition would look better with 1/3 ground and 2/3 sky. which means cropping space from the top; there are a number of marks or smudges in the sky which I take to be either dirt on the lens or sensor, - easily cleaned up; and I would suggest adding some more drama to the sky by increasing contrast in the sky only.

Loaded mod to show what I mean,

Hope this is helpful,
