I didn't get to shoot much this month because of the weather and time change but over Thanksgiving break the weather was better and I wasn't working so I got out to shoot. It was somewhat cold out, but it was nice to get out and shoot and not worry about anything else but what I was doing.

Congrats, Ken, on a beautiful photograph and a top ten finish! I hoped this was yours. I know this lighthouse is a popular subject for you, but this time you really nailed it.

Nice shot. Wonder how it would look in black and white?

The clarity in this photo is wonderful, so is the gradient on the sky. Love the starbursts of the lights. STUNNING leading lines. Wow.

Very appealing. Nice work on the sky - where many photos have noise: yours does not. Not that I can see anyway. 10

Gasp! Now, THIS is Master's quality stuff. I have to admit to being a bit disappointed so far with the entries I've voted on -- but this one puts "Master" in the image! My first 10. Good luck!

Crisp clean lines, tight composition, subtle hues, and an interesting subject.
Is this Ken?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 04:33:13 AM
i think I have seen this lighthouse far too often, so this lacks of any wow-factor. technically well done, though

Beautiful shot. Stunning simplicity.

very nice picture! excellent composition
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/01/2008 12:04:58 AM
Seen this place before. :) Can't remember if it was MAK or Marbo or someone else. Clear, crisp colors. Simple and uncluttered with nice flow. The stars add nicely. On the downside, it's perhaps too aseptic. Pretty, but where's the depth of thought a picture can conjure? 7
