Great colors in this image! I like the off-centered composition. Looks like you caught a bird in flight as a bonus?

Beautiful example of the rules of thirds. The colors ar fantastic!

Just a touch right in the frame to put your light right at the intersection point would make this a stronger composition. This looks like a long exposure shot at f/22 or close, judging by the dust spots I'm seeing above the lighthouse. I feel your pain.

AMAZING COLORS! This is beautiful and a wonderful use of Rule of Thirds.

Really nice shot - I think the lighthouse needs to move just a bit to the right and down a tad. Not much but it could make the impact stronger. 6

Wow, great pic, the horizon has hit the thirds line but it looks as if the lighthouse is too far to the left nearer the quarter?

7 - Nice colors. Criticism; not much, maybe a little more clarity, even just in the sea. Technically, while no 'expert', seems you are pretty spot on with at least two rules. Not sure on the frame, nice at the top, but the bottom detracts a little in my opinion against the blue.

Lovely sea scape. The red of the lighthouse building makes the shot for me. Great color contrast works, even without it being too bright. Nicely composed. Very pretty indeed.

Beautilful, I love it. Might even look better if the lighthouse was even whiter. Either way, 10!
09/21/2005 11:01:15 AM
Wow, dreamy! The sky looks unreal! Great use of thirds here with the horizon at the third lower horizontal thirds line and the lighthouse at the left thirds line. Color really accentuates the lines well. Would have like to see something in the sky (bird, cloud, sun, etc.) to let me know it was on our planet.
09/21/2005 06:32:46 AM
Wow!
