Photographer's Note

I have presented here already three photographs of Lough Tay, which we sometimes call Guinness Lake because it belongs to Guinness Estate and resembles a pint of Irish dark nectar with the white layer of beach resembling the characteristic foam on the Guinness pint.

I was not quite happy with one of the uploads (to see it click the Original Version in the right panel) and always wanted to make it better. One day I had a chance indeed to try again.
I have tried to pick almost same POV and similar composition.

There are two major differences:
1. My processing skills surely improved. Two tricks I learned since that time is to always check a photo before upload for the contrast and noise. Increase the contrast and filter out the noise. It makes enormous difference.
2. The two photos were taken several months from each other, the original one in March (practically a winter) and the new one in July (summer). Therefore they also have very different color tones. From brown dominating the first one to green predominant in the new upload.

What is always the same all year round is the Irish weather: windy and cloudy :)
