Composition is great and tones/use of B&W a good choice. Blown-out section on top (white) really hurts this image in my opinon. ((5))

I like the repeating diagonal elements.

This doesn't pop for me- the tones feel flat. Interesting sky though.

while i appreciate you effort here, i think your image could use some work. the bottom half is nice and tight, but the top is completely blown out. if it is on purpose, i'll admit, i'm not getting it. if this is not intentional, then please don't take it personally if you are not getting the scores and comments you expected. this is a tough challenge, especially in its size, and to do well, you need to connect with the viewers both technically and aesthetically. good luck!

Nice composition and subject - that sky is just way too blown out though, its a real shame.

I think this photo may suffer a bit from people with smaller moniters. I find it to be unnecessarily to tall and a 1 inch crop off the top would have had the same impact. I like the B&W style and the way the contrast from the sun whites out the weather vain on the top. It also has excellent clarity and good use of ROT. Well done and keep up the good work in 2005.

its a good picture, the overblow sky though is too much of a contrast against an otherwise dark shot

would have been better showing the base, but I assume you cropped it out for a reason

Don't know if it's just me, but it looks like something spooky looking down from the top of the lighthouse.

Nice simple composition. I you could have made the clouds look a little more dramatic (burning). Intriguing shot.

I LOVE lighthouses! This is a great shot of one, I wish the top of the weather...thing were'nt washed out though.
