Final Shoot for tour one


We are wrapping up our first tour this morning.  It has truly been a trip of a lifetime with great people and great photo opportunities.  Ireland is indeed beautiful. Today’s blog image is from our stop last night in Gougane Barra.  It is a small church that sits on the edge of a beautiful lake.  The light could not have been nicer.  For processing, I decided to use Nik’s Glamour Glow filter and then add Alien Skin Snap Art impasto for a painterly look.
