This is a nice view and well processed, but I think it would have more impact if the lighthouse were more prominent.

Ah, Lake Michigan, Chicago. My old home town. I have almost the same shot in a challenge last year.

Very nice, except the horizon is almost right smack in the middle of the picture. MAybe it is 55/45, but still too centered. This would have really shined with a better crop. Still a nice photo worth a 6.

i like the way that what it think is a light house is in the frame, but my only problem with the picture is it seems like there could have been other interesting things going on in this pictre. where did u take the picture at?
