Ocracoke Island Lighthouse, NC.

Laying flat on my back. It looks black & white, but it's actually a color photo. I wish the fence were sharper.

sometimes, like here, the lack of DOF actually makes the image work, and gives the image a sense of depth and scale. If the fence were also tack sharp, this would look flat and graphic. As is, very deep and more dynamic. The non-centered window and the angling upward fence, pointing at the focused subject really make this image work for me.

I like the simplicity - pity there wasn't more depth of field so all of the fence is sharp.

Six over six, and nine! Love the textures of the white washed brick on the lighthouse. The composition of your three elements is perfect to my eyes. Congrats.

Very cleverly composed, elegant and attractive.
Would be much better with more DOF and the fence focused though
