Sorry I couldn't think of a better title. I'm pretty rubbish with words. This was taken on Talacre beach in North Wales on a very windy day. We went for a walk on the beach but abandoned it halfway through because we were too cold. I wanted to submit a different picture but my computer crashed this month and I lost the file (it was this pic). Luckily most of my pics were still saved on my camera. Anyway I digress, this is only my third submission, so my hope for this pic is that it scores higher than the previous two - that way I'm still progressing not going backwards :)

Mission accomplished. Onwards and upwards :)

Here is the original straight out of the camera. I think it's very flat and a little dull. I much prefer the B&W.

very nice, love the composition, really like this shot, maybe the highlights is clouds was not so blown up, still a solid 8.

I really like this. I like that the lighthouse is so "small" in the overall frame and that the grass "frames" it.

Beautifully done. I think I would've liked the light house a little bit more towards the right.

Very nice composition. The lighthouse looks to be in a rather precarious position, like the ocean will overwhelm it in a few more years.
