Hi all,

Thank you for your nice comments on "Lighthouse versus the Sea". It was taken in Le Grau d'Agde, in the south of France. The lighthouse marks the end of the river named l'Herault.
The wind coming from the south was really strong that day, and waves bigger than what I have never seen. It's not usual to see the Mediterranean Sea so upset and I felt that I've captured conflict between the Sea and the Lighthouse.
For those who wondered how it was with colours, it was quite the same as the b&w picture. It was so gray and dark that the top of the lighthouse (usually green) was dark.
Anyway, thanks again for your comments and good marks ;)

Interesting shot, nice composition and color. It doesn't convey the message of conflict by itself.

Good concept. I like the B&W choice here. Good composition.

Beautiful snapper of an old literpole right but not really flicty with the con if you know what I'm saying. The lines that lead are massive strong and contrast pops through succulent mist. I'll barder it an good old twister, or eight as we say.

Nice shot! I like the composition and gray tones. I might have titled it 'Hindered Spirit'

Nice potrayal of a conflict. Great action shot. I wonder what it would look like in color, I'm just wondering, not saying that you should get less point because of an uncredible source (not knowing if it is better in color). Anyways, great shot! lol

Good contrast between water and stone. Lacking between mist and sky. Nice shot all around with that one exception.
