Clonmacnoise - Meadow of the Sons of Nós

Last summer I had the opportunity to travel to Ireland and explore. Clonmacnoise is an ancient ruin site that houses a church. While this is was very beautiful, I was undfornately there on a cloudy day with poor natural lighting. My mother loves the origanal photo, (which is the first thing wrong with it) but I think there is something more I can do with it. I have really liked the orignal composition with the window looking out onto the river, I can't stand the gloomy clouds in the outlook. 


This project gave me the idea to go back to this image and change the lighting to a breath taking sunset. A sunset where you can feel the warmth.

This was my first take:


Stills feels pretty gloomy, right? I was not digging my progess on this so I took another photo from a sunset I captured later on it in the trip and played with the curves to make the sun light really pop out.

Let me know what you think:


This was my "Bigger" project. I already have some other ideas for my "Better" and "Different" photos
