14 Years Later

I was looking at some photos today on another website when I noticed how a bright, white sky which I usually try to avoid like the plague seemed to draw me into the photo. As I was mulling over this, I recalled several images from one of my many trips to Ireland that I had earlier saved but never did anything with since the white, overcast, drizzly sky didn't do anything for me.  So, I searched my Ireland collection and, sure enough, found those images. And, with a newfound interest, I made some simple adjustments and, using Lightroom's presets, choose the "Old Polar" color to achieve this image.  And the "V" shape, one of many guidelines for photographs, really became prominent but not in a distracting way. It also helped that the signpost arrows pointed toward the white sky.  Old Polar also worked well with the rainy saturation of this typical late-winter, early-spring day in Killarney, County Kerry.  Fourteen years later, the image found it's calling.
