Cracking shot. All the superlatives and adjectives have been used below so nothing more to add.

this is a really nice shot. Looks like a postcard and a painting as well. I think the horizon is off just a tad bit. I love the softness of the sand and the mild drama to the clouds. Definitely fits the title. Overall, very nice shot, just can;t go wrong with a shot like this.

Not sure how you captured such silky sand in this but it is beautiful as is the lighting and composition of this shot. Really spectacular. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2003 03:28:56 PM
Wow... Nice shot and good interpretation of the title. I'm curious... was the sand blowing the sand, or is the blurring an illusion? Also, where did you take this?
Thanks!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful composition - slight blowing out of highlights (well, more than slight really) on the white paint is a touch annoying, but only a touch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2003 02:22:36 AM
What a beautiful lighthouse. I enjoy the perspective of the walkway to the lighthouse, as well as the detail of the guard rail on the top. This photo flows nicely to me starting with the red at the top, and moving first down, and then to the left with the walkway. Good Job, I say 10.

I wish I had beautiful lighthouse landscapes to photograph! You've done a lovely job with this one. The composition of the frame is nice, and the smooth sand makes an inviting landscape.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Gorgeous photo. Great simple colours. Sharpness is amazing and the composition is dead on. I love the soft appearance of the sand on the left side - it ads feeling of time to this photo. So very well done.

Wow. I like this! The walkway reaching out to the viewer inviting you to climb up. The smooth swish of the sand, that soft blue sky with the perfect clouds and that wonderful red top. Sharp focus, lovely light 10

Beautiful seashore - love the composition, especially the red roof, a gift from the builders. Love the soft texture of the sand. Excellent title connection. One of the best!

Great sky colour, nice sweeping feel to the sand. Good composition. Horizon feels tilted, almost curved even?

What a great shot. I almost chose this book title myself so I know the book and can appreciate the aspects of this photo that make this such a perfect match. You really got lucky or patient with sky and the sand in addition to your choice of lighthouse. Everything comes together so nicely, the clarity, the composition of the shot, the colors and the perspective. 10

Nice capture overall. This is good, but it would have been a show stopper if taken at a different time of day, like sunrise or sunset. The sand has a good texture here though.
