Picture Perfect: A Members-Only Photography Contest

If you haven't done so already, take a few minutes to flip through the photographs posted here by members of The Wild Geese community.  There is quite a variety of photos, ranging from landscapes to historical figures -- both in "The Motherland" and from points across the globe which have been touched by the Irish diaspora.

We want to encourage more of these excellent photos to roll in from you, the members of The Wild Geese.  Every photo submitted over each contest period will be assessed by The Wild Geese team; the ones deemed to be of the highest quality will be shortlisted for a popular vote by the membership.  The photographer who captured the image receiving the most number of "Likes" from among the membership will win a nice prize from The Wild Geese prize closet.

Naturally, we ask that all photographs be the original work of the member and not subject to any copyright restrictions.  Please give a title to each photo and a brief description providing any interesting details which may add to the appeal of the photo.

The next round of the contest returns soon, so get snapping!

Stunning photo, Lisa. Tell us about your equipment, and the light available, and how you went about setting up.

Gerry....Nikon D7100, Nikkor 18-200mm zoom lens, and a tripod. Fairly simple stuff. It was late evening toward the end of August, right before sunset. And if I recall, without actually looking, I'd say I was probably at f/11 and 1/30 or so. I sharpened it up a bit post processing, and added a little bit of sat, but that was about it. The bridge spans the River Suir at Kilsheelan, and is a top destination for fly fisherman due to the Suir's abundant salmon. I'm already planning my trip back next year. I absolutely love the Tipperary/Waterford area. Thanks for the nice comments, all.

If you have a chance, please take a moment to view the attached slideshow by my good friend, Joe Ormonde.  Joe is a phenomenal landscape photographer from the village of Kilsheelan, in South Co. Tipperary...where my previously posted photo of the bridge was taken.  When he's not out combing the Irish countryside for pastoral scenes to shoot, Joe makes himself available for custom photo tours throughout southeast Ireland and anywhere else a client might be interested in visiting.  His vast photographic experience and expertise, in addition to his familiarity with the the off-the-beaten path places to capture the most amazing photographs make him the go-to person to show fellow photobugs where and how to capture the most amazing images that Ireland has to offer. (In addition to that, he's also willing to do the driving--and if you've ever driven in Ireland, you'll understand why this is such a huge selling point.) Thought I'd share with all of you.  Tour guides in Ireland aren't difficult to come by, but a tour specifically geared to photographers at reasonable rates is a rare find.  If you or anyone you may know is planning a journey to Ireland and is interested in hearing more, contact me through this thread, or via email at lfortinjackson@aol.com, and I'll be more than happy to put you in touch with Joe.  In the interim, take a look, and enjoy the slides, and feel free to share if you like what you see.
