Congratulations on this well deserved win. It's so good in so many ways. The composition of clouds meeting rocks pierced by the insignificance of the beautiful lighthouse all in wonderful tones. Sigh.

What a dreamy and surreal look this one has - love the sharpness on the light and the softness in the sky

Love the wide angle here - the sky rushes out to the top of the frame, foreground wall anchors the composition very well.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/04/2007 07:41:32 PM
Dynamic image. Very dramatic. Love your tones and composition. My favorite so far. A tighter crop from the top might help place the focus more on the lighthouse, which is in beautiful detail, but this is just my personal opinion.

06/04/2007 07:10:35 PM
Impressive image. I really like the perspective and your chosen positioning of the horizon line to show the clouds.
