The view of Lough Dan. Lough Dan (Irish: Loch Deán) is a boomerang-shaped ribbon lake near Roundwood, County Wicklow, Ireland. It is a popular area for hikers and kayakers and lies very close to the Wicklow Way. The Inchavore river flows into Lough Dan from the west and Lough Tay feeds it via the Cloghoge river from the north. It is drained to the south by the Avonmore. Most of the lake is surrounded by private lands, though the northwest corner is part of the Wicklow National Park. (brian cahill)

Fastnet Rock Lighthouse Mizen Head ,Construction of the first lighthouse began in 1853, and it first produced a light on 1 January 1854. The lighthouse replaced an early one built on Cape Clear Island in 1818, partly motivated by the loss of an American sailing packet, Stephen Whitney, in thick fog during November 1847 on nearby West Calf Island causing the death of 92 of her 110 passengers and crew. The new lighthouse was constructed of cast iron with an inner lining of brick and was designed by George Halpin. Costing £17,390, the tower was 63 feet 9 inches (19.4 m) high with a 27 feet 8 inch (8.4 m) high lantern structure on top, giving a total height of around 91 feet (27.7 m). It had an oil burning lamp of 38 kilocandelas; in contrast modern lighthouses typically produce 1,300 kilocandelas. In 1883 an explosive fog signal was installed, which electrically detonated a small charge of guncotton every five minutes. (Pat J Falvey)
This image was captured during a college project. I love it because of how the colours are drawn out of the roses and exaggerated by the colour gels I had placed on the studio lights. Photography was always a hobby of mine and only recently have I discovered how much I love photography. Flowers are beautiful to take pictures of and I think my photograph has many technical beauties to it aswell as quirky differences compared to other organic photography. (Marie Sheedy)

This picture was taken of a cluster of trees that are situated in a field behind my house. The sun was just setting and the sunlight was peering through an opening in the clouds. As the sunlight escaped, it created a deep orange glow across the sky which illuminated the clouds. It has a sort of eery feel to it which I find adds to the picture. (Mark Kelly)

This is my very first studio shot and I had a great time working with Siobhán on this. Siobhán Madden started ballet in 1998 at the age of 4. Siobhán first preformed at the age of 5 at The Rupert Guinness Hall, the theatre is still in existence today but no longer in use as an entertainment venue. She has preformed at The National Concert Hall four times to date and the most recent performance in March of this year saw her first solo as The Sugar Plum fairy in "Celebration of Dance 2012" presented by Kim Lyons School of Classical Ballet. This Studio shot is a nod to Lois Greenfield one of my all time fav photographers. Myself and Siobhan were looking over some images and decided to see if we could make this work. It was a challenge but I am very happy with the way it turned out. The set up was 3 x Elinchrom BXRi 500's (get these from the great people at Barker Photographic) 2 lights shining into the back of Siobhan set at (5.5.) 1 light directly in front of her set at (5.0) Camera is the Canon 5D MKII with the Canon 24 - 105mm f/4L is USM lens at 47mm ISO 50 set on Manual at 1/160 @ f/16.
