Caught this reflection off the windows of the lightkeepers house while photographing the lighthouse at sunset. I kind of like this image better than the actual lighthouse shots.

Not much processing. I cloned out some minor distractions in the reflection and sharpened.

Greetings from the Critique Club...

Hi Hauxon :)

I think this is a very well thought out image, and you did catch a nice reflection and the essence of the challenge as well. The idea is great.

Compositionally, I believe there could possibly be room for improvement. Unfortunately, I can only guess at what lies outside the shown image area though. The dark area in the upper right corner is a bit of an eye-grabber. It creates a sharper contrast that is rather far from the subject area of the image. I don't know if you could have composed that element out or not by moving to one side or the other... it's hard for me to tell... I also don't know if you could have elevated the camera a little more to make it more of a face-on photo... low enought to keep yourself out of the reflection but high enough to eliminate that corner...

At any rate, it's a good shot... I think it's a little underrated :)

I know this lighthouse! :) Allt that window seems a bit extravagant though, I could have lived without the top window.

I would like this more if you could've killed the interior reflection. Nice blues and yellows.

I think a less centered image would be much more dramatic and mysterious. I really do like this however with the white windows and relections.

I would have cloned out the power lines. Just a minor item.

very nicely captured. using the polarizer really makes those skies pop dont they?

Nice idea! Wonder if there was a way you could have captured it such that the lighthouse reflection covered both panes.

Interesting composition, the lack of perfect symmetry puts me off. Some great colours though.

It would have looked better with out the tthings inside the window distracting me.

Nice composition. Good crop

I like the effect of the framed window looks like a tower extension repeting the square windows in the original tower. It is original and works. Maybe some reflections are annoying or unnecessary.

Great job and subject choice. I like the exposure.

I would crop off the top window pane...

Skyldi það vera úti á Gróttu? Rámar í að hafa séð þennan vír þar.
Ágæt hugmynd og fín mynd.
Ég hefði samt látið tvo glugga duga.

I like the lighthouse in the window, but I don't like the original window. The shape (or the crop) does nothing for the photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is really nice, love the white and blue, they go so well together. I might have cropped off the top windows, but it's still pretty good as is.

a polrizing filter would have reduced some of the glare....and allowed the subject to be more pronounced.

Interesting shot. I like the colors and the depth (height) of the window above. Helps make the lighthouse stand out nicely.

Nice shot

I think this might have had more impact if the top windows were cropped out.
