I don't think anyone will catch it but the title is a reference to Giorgio de Chirico's painting "Nostalgia of the Infinite" which can be seen here, this picture really reminded me of it.

Not my usual Free Study landscape shot but I really like how this one turned out, I have mixed feelings about how it will do though. I'm wondering if I'll get dinged for the electrical box that's on the side of the building but I thought it was too big of an element to clone out and might have been DQ-able.
/Keeps fingers crossed that it does ok

Thanks everyone for taking the time to vote and comment!

My best finish in a FS, I'm really happy how it did. The structure is a lighthouse at the Barber's Point Naval Air Station on the west side of Oahu. It was such a clear day, I stood there for over an hour waiting for clouds to come by. It was definitely worth the wait.
