nice work - almost got you a 6! I think the slight textures in the sky and halo around the lighthouse probably cost you a bit of score. It is perfectly composed and colored though.

This seems a bit grainy, or oversharpened or something. I'm not sure what it is that I am seeing here. Other than that processing issue, this is wonderful.

Great subject, but the focus seems off. Hand shake? Maybe better with a tripod...

This is the second shot I've seen of Castle Hill Light in this challange. I really like the texture of the rocks and the colors here. Nice work!

Seems to have a bit too much contrast and/or sharpening. I like the composition and colors of the sky.

the reds seem a little grainy, but love the textures you have going on here with the rocks and the light house, classic shot, well done

an impressive vista - the dynamic colors of the sunset really provide the light a great backdrop
