Very Nice. The color and the way you captured the high contrast scene is very nice. The clutter on the right end of skyline is pretty distracting for me personally and I would clone it out. In any case a very nice shot. Just my opinion. Thanks for sharing.

Nice of the rain to have stopped long enough to give you the mirror effect on the water :-)

Congrats on the red! I really like how the lighthouse stands out against the moody sky.

Gorgeous use of reflections in what I have to imagine was a date filled with moving water.

Really nice processing. Great darkness, and it seems like you eliminated a good bit of that "hdr glow" that I don't really like.

A bit moody, but that fits the dark sky. This is an effective image.

Lightening up the reflection of the lighthouse a little would have made this one look more real. Good sky though and the scene is interesting.

Perfect....

Stunning.

LOVE the colors in this. The brown from the sky hitting the brown of the ground, then leading to the symmetrical sky/reflection, to me deserves high marks. 9, and I really hope this ribbons.

You took this at the exact right moment. Excellent surroundings and use of the lighthouse. The lighting is great. Excellent photo.

This is deliciously smooth.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/09/2012 08:51:45 AM
very cool lighthouse and most of this is wonderful but the halo around the light is quite unfortunate and gives this a cartoon look IMO

Very nice colors, TT
