I love how the rock details leads my eye directly toward the lighthouse. Great composition and detail.

Nicely done, Robert. A bit of a red color cast, but I like that the HDR effect is more natural in this one.

HDR the way it should be done. Simple and understated, yet powerful. This lighthouse has sure been giving us high scores of late!

Tone mapping really helps with this type of photography, so I can definitely sympathize with that drug.

Beautiful, breathtaking shot. Love the PP, and have always wanted to visit a lighthouse. Very nicely done.

I dont know where this is but its beautiful. I see a lot of linear clouds in the sky, I dont know if that from your editing or not but if not they are chemtrails. If your not sure what they are google it, looks like "big brother" is spraying that location like crazy. I thought they were contrails when I first saw them here and wondered why there was so many in the sky suddenly. Until i looked it up and found out there chemtrails. I can gaurantee this photo was taken in a NATO country. Great shot though
