Great colors but desparately needs perspective correction.

i thought it was "red sky at night, sailors delight; red sky at morning, sailors take warning." lol, are you saying it's sunset?

Very nice colors here. I think the building should be a little more inside the frame, because I think it is the main subject and the nice cloud is just a backround, but the sky really adds something to the photo (that's maybe because it's a sky challenge :). I would give you 8.5 if it was possible, but that's not possible so you get a 9.

Nice sky. The lighthouse tilt bugs me a bit and the fact that you didn't manage to get it all is also a bit of a downer here.

It's the leaning lighthouse of Pisa! ;-) Beautiful image! I wonder if I am the only one who looks at that cloud formation and sees a shark biting another fish in half.
