Unnamed Rd, Addergoole, (osm)

A yellow wheel barrow on top of a mountain, at the end of a steep foot path, of course poses some questions. The best answer we could come up with, was that some kids had made a joke out of taking it away from one of the path improvement sites and put it on top of the Binn. Colorwise at least it provided a remarkable contrast against all the soft coloring of the Connemara National Park landscape

    1. Thanks, Colin! Re. the treatment, this is probably a “know your tools well” case: AfterShotPro was my favourite raw converter even when it was named “bibble” (the choice under linux is really limited), and its unsharp masking (for local contrast enhancement) and wavelet sharpen tools allow careful improving of my Lumix’ raw files. The latter shines as long as object contrast is not too high, but normally provides well graduated raws. And the whole workflow is so fast, that I simply never bothered with any out-of-camera jpegs…
