Another shot of the Peggy's Cove lighthouse. It was going to be my Motivational Poster submission, but I decided to keep it for this challenge.

That white dot is not a hot pixel and I did not add it manually. It was a bright star shining in the clear sky. I cloned out another one near the center top. I find that the star gives balance to the shot. And the horizon is straight on this one! LOL! Check my Motivational Poster entry and you'll see what I mean.

This shot has that awesome Fuji late evening color gradient. I like the solid and simple lines as well as the minimal clutter. It looks like a relaxing location to be at dusk.

Beautiful sunset/sunrise scene. The silhouette of the lighthouse helps to give the powerful scene an extra bit of punch. I really like the star in the sky. It helps to make your eyes look at the complete scene, yet keeps the composition simple.

What does it for me is the green light ot the light house. If it wasn't for that I would rate the scene a bit dull. The color and color gradation is excellent and so is the foreground profiling. Good composition and thanks for waiting for the right time to take the photo. 8

great glow on the horizon. the orange and blue works great with the green light. excellent canvas size as well. Try a white border - or a bigger border.

Wow! Great colors! I love the composition. The colors are simply awesome, and I love the green color of the light on the light house, it adds a good punch to the silhouettes. Good luck. Jacko. 10. Hang it on your wall.

Great panoramic-style image! Not sure if the white spot in the upper left is supposed to be a star or the moon but it's sort-of distracting especially with the mostly blue sky. Great job, however!
