I really like this this photo. I feel the lighthouse is too close to the edge of the frame and would have benefited a bit further away but I still think this is a nice capture. good job

I would score higher if the light house was not so crammed to the edge.

WOW...lovely colours and clarity..9

Nice capture - Love the tones just wish the lighthouse had a little more breathing space

Beautiful shot, the colors are incredible and the composition is right on. Well done.

Beautiful colors and clarity, but IMNSHO, you need to get the light house in or out of the shot -- it's too close to the margin.

the colours seem a little too vibrant (over saturated?) to me. Sorry if you didn't adjust in PP

Beautiful colors and clarity

I like the composition with the lighthouse not being dead center. I would have maybe given it just a little more room on the right side. It almost looks "chopped off".

I wish it wasn't cropped so close to the lighthouse.

Wonderful rich colors! Nice composition.

Did you saturate the sky? It looks too blue on the right. Maybe I just live in a polluted place.

This looks like a postcard - I really like the processing.

The tones in this are really nice. I think I'd like the photo a little better if the lighthouse wasn't so close to the edge of the picture.

I like this a LOT... I can't help but think that the lighthouse needs just a teeny bit more breathing room on the right, though. I might have panned just a little more to the right. Still a darned fine shot, though :)

A bit too bright for my liking (but what do I know?). I would've like to see more behind the lighthouse.
03/01/2007 03:02:59 PM
IMO it needs a little more space to the right of the lighthouse.
03/01/2007 08:33:47 AM
It's a little tight on the right, I'd like to see a bit more space beyond the lighthouse. Clouds are a bit blown out but overall a beautiful scene.

the cropping on the right seems uncomfortably close to the light house. Beautiful colors and balance of negative and positive space.
