Absolutely gorgeous! Such wonderful clarity, very crisp and clear. I'm stunned by the quality and 'feel' of this photo! It is a breathtaking view that you were able to capture and portray to the viewer....definitely one of my favorites....terrific job on this!

Nice clear shot. Good focus and DOF. Technically, nothing really stands out blaringly wrong or bad. I would cut the bottom inch and a half. Basically cut out the small rock beach, leaving only the rock the lighthouse sits on as the bottom (foreground.) The water breaking on the rock to the right is a nice, natural favor to the image. Clouds add a neat feel. The only other part, and this is something you cant control, but I would see if a change of angle would get rid of the land behind the lighthouse, on the horizon. Great job, overall.

I concur with your title...I think for a postcard crop you need to take a little off the bottom, top, or both...but that's just an estimation.

Looks like a postcard. Very nice! I wonder if it would look better to crop out those rocks at the bottom of pic.

You're right, it's postcard stuff, choice shot. And of course, lots of weather here :-)

good clouds. i like the way the light house is just a tad off center. throw a border around it - this will sell wonderfully

The rocks in the foreground look a little distracting, otherwise nice shot.

This does look like it belongs on a postcard. Looks alittle like Nantucket? Beautiful

And a nice postcard picture, too. Nicely done. Is the horizon slightly tilted to the left?

Well-chosen title for the shot. 7.

I don't think of "weather" first when looking at this shot but it's so great I can't hold back from an instant 9/10 - I particularly like the sufr spray whipping up behind the rock on the right.

What a great image !

in my opinion this would is already a strong composition but it could be even stronger without the rocks on the bottom.

Yes indeed it is. Lovely.
