The spot by the lighthouse was a bird I didn't see while taking the shot. I should have noticed but I was in a hurry!

Post Challenge: Thanks for the votes and comments! This lighthouse is actually in Michigan City, but I looked up the one in St. Joe and it looks a lot like it.

Post Post Challenge: The "haloing" is discussed in this thread, along with the original. http://www.dpchallenge.com/forum.php?action=read&FORUM_THREAD_ID=471147
I was out on near the lighthouse twice since I took the shot and both times the lighter blue water appears to be difference in amount of waves. Shadow/highlights was used but I forgot to list in steps.

Byt the time you are through you are going to be able to produce a whole book on nothing but this lighthouse. That is a good thing because you have a great ability of capturing it at different times to enhance the elements. This photo is a perfect example of that. Brilliant capture.

Yep, I'm aware of the dust. I got it out, but have a bit more I'm still dealing with!

I'm guessing.... St. Joe Lighthouse? Nice job!

Nice capture. The walkway and water lead my eyes right up to the lighthouse. The colors in the sky are phenominal.

Perfect framing. Light is nice. Is the sky overdone? (Top right) Scored good with me.

Very nice example of leading lines.

Great job. That's a nice sky.

The angle of the clouds adds just enough of a contrast to the strongly converging lines of the walkway to make the picture interesting
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Good job on this picture. I wonder though if this picture is better suited for a square crop. Looks like you have some dust on your sensor too.

Wonderful perspective and colors. I like the focus and talk about a sky! So pretty with that pop of red at the end on the lighthouse. 8

great way to use the lines to break up the page. the negative space is as engaging as the subject.
