I shot this on the last day of August while traveling in Oregon and was unable to enter it in the Free Study. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to enter it in the Best of '08. I'm glad I waited.

Thanks for all of the wonderful and helpful comments!

Congrats on your personal best! I didn't notice the tilt of the horizon although I did notice the lighthouse seemed a bit askew. Well done!

Congratulations!! very nicely done.

Wow, what a terrific capture! It's also an excellent example of being in the right place at the right time. Without the tilted horizon and sharpening halos this would probably have a ribbon. If it were up to me I'd also give the rainbow a bit more room at the top of the image. Anyway, congratulations on a great shot!

I gave this an 8. Special capture that I surmise made it especially difficult to crop/adjust/straighten without hurting the arc.

Stunning rainbow. Was it real or created?

What a great capture!! Definitely you were at the righ place at the right moment. Congratulations!!

The moment is nice and the place is beautiful, but I find the tilted horizon very distracting. The image also seems a bit over-sharpened.

Nice rainbow, great capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is truly the best photo. Love just about everything.
The strong halo on the clifs are the only thing I don't like.

Might be a bit too sharp. Nicely composed and captured though.

Wow - nice capture. Great photo!

a lighthouse always scores high with me...add the rainbow...hmmm really good capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2009 07:38:31 PM
Wow. Look at that rainbow. Had you at a 9 and bumped to a 10. Awesome shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/18/2009 04:42:23 PM
That is one heck of a rainbow - I hope you were able to find the pot of gold a the end - lovely sweeping clouds, excellent composition to get the rainbow leading to the lighthouse - very nice

have to give this one a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2009 04:23:01 PM
This is a stunning photo and that rainbow is to die for. What keeps me from giving it a higher score are the sharpening halos around the rocks and lighthouse.

Very cool, nice catch, great light on the lighthouse
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/17/2009 10:53:58 AM
well, WOW that has to be a capture in one million, amazing clarity, clean lines and curves give it a little something. Very impressive shot, well done

spectacular image - great job

stunning, great light...looks a tad oversharpened 7

It is such a shame that a tilted horizon, something that is so simple to avoid takes so much away from what is otherwise an outstanding picture and an incredibly lucky opportunity. This would have been an 8, or even my first 9 of the challenge.

Nice capture!

Stunning.

Amazing, what great timing for you. Shame you decided not to straighten the horizon, though. Another 2 seconds of processing and you'd have a perfect photo.

01/16/2009 09:53:21 AM
Holy Smokes. I wonder how long you waited for that.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/16/2009 12:32:17 AM
Yep, looks like you waited just the right length of time. Good one!
