Shutter: 1/800
Date Uploaded: Mar 10, 2009

Taken of the Point Lonsdale Lighthouse. This Lighthouse guards the entrance to Port Phillip Bay at 'The Rip', one of the roughest pieces of water known. Even on this very calm day, it was still very choppy out in the sea lane

Wow, the blues and browns here compliment each other so nicely, fantastic colors.

Very nice scene. Could use a better/stronger sky (cloud wise) and some foreground detail for depth (e.g., get down low, focus on some shells or something, make that a subject of interest with the wonderful lighthouse and shore as a backdrop, David Muench style. (Not voting, at least yet, just commenting.)

Nicely composed lighthouse scene. Good strong colors, detail and clarity.

Other than a bit of noise grain in the sky (probably not visible on all monitors), really nice.

Very nice image. It's good to see a few "great" images. This is a perfect reflection of your abilities as a photographer.

Nice seascape, I like lighthouse photos. The colours seem a bit oversaturated.

Nice composition!

Seems a bit oversharpened in places (left side of lighthouse artifacts), but it's really prettily composed and the colors are good.

this image seems average.. not super exciting
03/13/2009 11:34:12 AM
A simple composition that works fine, the sky and water's blue tones work nicely. A simple, self-explanatory image.

Wonderful seascape. Bold colors and shapes. The little red boat (?) at the horizon is a little distracting, and the images seems to have been oversharpened.

Interesting composition. Love the way the gray scud clouds in the deep blue sky mirror the patterns in the surf below. Nice.

neat lighthouse
03/11/2009 01:17:45 AM
Maybe it was, but the processing makes it look so cold... I prefer a nice warm beach. :)

Nice spot, image looks a shade over-sharpened to me, also I'd have cropped befor ethe mast behidn the lighthouse. Also I think it woudl work far better in B&W ...
