Though I didn't get a chance to comment on this challenge, this shot was the only one I gave a 10 (lots of nines though). Very well done. Congrats on your best finish... so far.

Thank you all for the comments & for helping me hit my best placement to date! :o)
To answer one question, the orange area on the bottom to the far left is the covered front porch archway & the others are windows. The building does have more windows, but none of them have a counter window to show straight through. Too many walls in between them.
This is Fire Island Lighthouse on Long Island.

Just lovely -- your sky has wonderful colors -- I'd like to see even more spaces for it to show through in the bottome of the shot. as presented -- one of my favorites in the challenge

One of my favorites. A potential ribbon! I like the way the widows on the right highlight the siloutte. But on the left, what is that? Another window? Kind of distracting. I think I would black out all three of the windows so as not to distract from the siloutte. Good luck! 9

Beautiful shot. There is just enough cloud in the sky to make it interesting.

Lovely lighthouse shot.... The simplicity of the silhouette against the early morning / late evening sky feels peaceful.

Really beautiful. The sky looks a little bit un-natural but perhaps it really was that color.

I like the image, I like the silhouette and, light houses are popular subjects for silhouettes, so you have a good subject of interest. The only thing I do NOT like, is the composition which for me, is just too visually tight a composition. Also, i have not yet figured out why but, my mind keeps wanting to see the lighthouse on the left side of the image, but that's only a horizontal rotation away :-)

Nancy, is this yours? Either way, it's gorgeous!

Shades of a soap opera! (pun intended!) Lovely composition.

Classic example of silhouette. Composition is very strong. Sky colours are very nicely saturated without looking overdone. One of my highest votes.

Nice colors. Good timing to catch the light as it passed. Orange in the windows at the base add a point! Base could be cropped a bit - take away about 1/2 of the black bottom.
