This was taken a few minutes after my January 2008 freestudy. It's also a similar composition, but it's got a very different feel to it (partly timing, and partly the different processing approach).

I really like this one, but I'm still debating whether to leave it in the Best of Challenge, since it will be fairly easy to recognize.

Such a smooth color shift in the sunset!
The lighthouse almost looks fake. Well framed. Wish the exposure in the shadows was slightly higher.

This is the second shot I've seen of Castle Hill Light in this challange. What a great place to shoot (one of my favorite lighthouses in the whole world!). This is really a super shot. Nice work!

Great time of day and composition for this image, the lit lighthouse adds, the angle of the rocks draw you in, good range of tones

Outstanding image - the composition is excellent - the slope of the lines of the rocks really marry well with the water below, and the bright strip of sunset is repeated in the last light on the rocks and the light above - great job

This is really classic. I like the beginnings of the shadowy evening with the line of orange/yellow and the pop from the beacon. Nice perspective and a spot on focus. 8
