This is a shot of Lough Tay in County Wicklow, Ireland. Lough Tay is commonly referred to as the Guinness Lake due to its resemblance to a pint of Guinness. The northern part of the coastline is owned by the Guinness family, who imported white sand to create the effect of the head on a Guinness.

This photo was taken using a Nikon D4s DSLR with a Nikon 24mm f/1.4 wide angle lens. The photo was first imported into DXO Pro Optics 9 to iron out any small anomalies, it was then taken into Photoshop CS6 where I created 5 different exposures (-2 through +5) out of a single image. From there I merged the images into 1 HDR file using Photomatix Pro 5, then I applied a filter to the HDR image using Topaz Labs Clarity. Finally, I amended the levels slightly using Lightroom 5.

Thanks for looking!
