Comment by Dr.Confuser:
Awesome capture and presentation. Gorgeous. Love that you caught recogniseable stars ... Orion's belt?

Comment by Bear_Music:
I have come back to bump this one. My first reaction was that it was pretty nice, but that the colors were too cool to really suit me, and I slotted it in the 7's, a decent score. But now I am back, and I confess to being slightly mystified by this scene, or, rather, by how you created it...

ON the surface of it, this seems simple enough: one exposure for the structures and the sky, and at the end of the exposure or during the exposure the light swept through in its arc.

OR, possibly, a true HDR image, with several exposures, accomplishing same as above.

That's not a mystery, particularly. But I'm looking at the stars, and the hint of mist in the sky, and that's like *one* thing; and I'm looking at the lighting on the tower and the shack, and that's like what, full-moon light? Sure seems to be. But, STARS so visible during a full moon? A little odd for up here, anyway.

So, ANTwho.... It's sharp as a tack, mysteriously lit, vaguely enigmatic overall, and of course I'm realizing the formerly-objectionable "cool" colors are exactly as they should be, for a moonlit exposure, so...

Bumpity-long-winded-bump!

BTW, nearly all my high scores are going to the odd and quirky-beguiling images that speak to me in this challenge; yours is one of the few landscapes to make it into the 9+ range with me.

Comment by Skip:
you need to revisit your post-processing on this before printing it large in order to bring out the beams. as is, it's nice, but it doesn't pop. it's one of my favorite subjects (check out my portfolio). here's one that's close to what i'm talking about (but it still needs some work). it really is incredible out there at that time of night, isn't it?

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/20000-24999/23394/800/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_450871.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/20000-24999/23394/800/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_450871.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

good luck!

Lovely capture. Might have cropped a little more off the right side but still a great shot.

Comment by ThingFish:
Stunning lighthouse shot. Great night sky and I like the black and white instead of the usual red and white. Nice clarity and detail. 8

Comment by JC_Homola:
love the detail wish the light itself was not so bright, would have been a great image to layer exposures

Comment by figment:
Very nice image. It's good to see a few "great" images. This is a perfect reflection of your abilities as a photographer.

Comment by Lydia:
Wow. Beautiful. I hope this does well for you. The stark black and white and blue is very pleasing... The noise is distracting, but not overly so.

Not voting yet.
