I was on a cruise from New England to Nova Scotia and Hurricane Kyle followed us all week. My husband and I decided to jump ship and spend a few days in Halifax. It was worth the early wake up call and drive to Peggy's Cove before all the tourists showed up to really enjoy the first day all week without rain. This is my first entry so I'm just hoping for some helpful feedback. Thanks!

Thanks for the comments. This was my first time posting to the site and I was not sure of the size - I was just trying to follow the rules and keep the image as high quality as possible but in the size limits.

If I had straightened the tower, the horizon would have been off. I'm not sure if the lighthouse leans a little or if it was my angle?

Thanks again for the comments. I look forward to submitting more pictures!

I gave this an 8, mainly because I think this size doesn't do this justice. Perhaps a whisker up on the right to straighten (reflection seems slightly off anyway) and some tweaking in post processing to bring the colors to life more, maybe a little selective sharpening of the fore - that and 720 might have given this an edge.

the reflection of the top of the light in the pool below is a great feature to balance the shot

I like this...my only question would be why did you save it so small at 660 pixels?
