America's oldest lighthouse, Portland Head, commissioned by George Washington himself.

Normally you get thrown out at sunset, but I managed to negotiate with the security guards Smile

The additional foreground in version 1 adds so much to the composition. Excellent shot

I really like this, especially V2 where the sky and feathered cloud have more prominence. Clear, clean and bright.

A well composed and most attractive shot. Personally I prefer V1 as I feel the additional foreground provides for better balance. That said I'd prefer V1 with just a tad more sky.

Thank you everyone.

Dave, I had similar thoughts when I first saw them side-by-side. The sky level needs to be half-way between the two. Time for a content-aware rescale I think Smile
