Ohh, I hate last minute submissions.
I didn't hate the photograph. I just didn't like the fact that I needed to do everything very fast and half asleep so I could think more about it and make it better. In fact I love this photograph and I think it's a little bit underrated. Ok, I shouldn't be whining with that score.

Before I shot this shot I went to an exhibition inside this Lighthouse. A photographer named Friđrik Örn had taken some photos of Lighthouses around Iceland and made an exhibiton. Among those photographs where a photograph that I loved so much that I would had added it to my favorites if it were on dpc :). It looked very similar to mine but the sky where red and there where nice star trails on the sky. I tried to colorize it with hue saturation but it didn't become very as good as the original photo. I hope try to recreate it later when we get longer and darker nights here in Iceland.

Personally, I think you should be whining! This is a strong subject shot at a perfect time of day - nice one.

Yup. If I make an ugly photograph people will love it and if I'll make a rather good one I'll just get about 5.2 for it :)

Quite striking. Love the clouds. The complementary gold/blue thing you've got going on is very pleasant. Isn't it funny how the horizon is straight but the tower is tilted? Hmmmm

I like it.

The photo is surreal...the colors are beautifully contrasting. Too bad for the power lines (or whatever they are - I see two) but they almost blend in with the clouds - nice job. What is the orange thing in the sky? It's a little distracting and I don't know what a Grotta is but I guess neither of those things matter too much - it's just beautiful to me. 10
