What a great shot! This is under-ranked. But congratulations on a fine shot and very good score.

Constructive crit: I do think it could use with a bit (or more) distortion correction. The lighhouse seems to lean right. What processing did you do?

A small rotation would have done a lot here IMO! Just to make the lighthouse straight up!
Great capture!

Nice framing of the lighthouse. I like the perspective.

The colors of the rocks in the foreground are quite striking and create a nice framework for the lighthouse. I think that there needs to be a slight rotation to level the horizon.

It's hard to get an original shot of Portland Headlight. This is an angle I haven't seen before. I like the foreground a lot. But I'm not sure about the distortion of the light. It looks like it's been stretched? Overall very nice though.

Wonderful composition, nice leading lines and framing of the lighthouse.

It's good how the lighthouse and flowers play against each other in this shot. The quality of the rock detail is also high.

I feel as though I am being blown toward the lighthouse...
a very nice effect...

Nice try. Good angle and overall efect. I would have straightened the horizon.

This is a nice view of portland head light. Havent seen it from this angle before. IMO the light house appears to be leaning a bit, but overall nice shot.

Maine? Whatever, the rocks have a pleasing cleavage or bedding plane orientation (speaking as a geologist).
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Definitely an ultra-wide lens. Man I wish I had that capability. You have done real well with this composition. Love it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/01/2006 05:29:35 PM
Nice shot, but I hope the lighthouse doesn't really tilt that way.

Another calandar shot here...

The perspective here is fantastic but the lighthouse seems to lean a bit. I think the horizon should be tipped a bit to the left.

Beautiful Work!!

Oh my. What composition. Love the entire scene. If I were to critique anything, I might suggest playing a touch with levels to enrich the tones just a smidge. It's lovely.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Outstanding. The only distracting element is the lighthouse appearing to lean towards the right. I am just assuming this is thanks to a wide angle lens. Best of luck to you! 8
