Taken on a cold January evening...this wonderful very different lighthouse sat at the top of the mound at Samphire Hoe in Dover.
There are two versions, one with an cracked effect to give at old painting look as it kind of looked that way and the normal...I would be interested to know which you like.
Have a great day and thank you for c&c's on my recent images...truly appreciated!
V2 for me ..V1 looks interesting too but not sure if it achieves the old painting look
V2 for me, very nice photo though I do like the texture on V!
V2 seems much more suited to this lovely image. I don't think the crackle version does it justice. To look like an old painting, it would have to be much darker tones.
I quite agree, it was just a thought, and one that didn't pay off this time...thank you for your feedback
V2 on TOP +++++
v2 for me as well, love the light and composition. My first thoughts on v1 was - that's gonna be one heck of a jigsaw puzzle to solve! Sorry.
I see where you are coming from with V1 but I do think V2 works best on this shot. IMO.
V2 for me.
Hi Loren, The cracked effect is interesting, however I have to along with the general consensus that version two is the best. I really like the lighthouse and I have to say I've not seen one like it. I wouldn't give up on the cracked paint effect because I would imagine there are images that this would suit well.
Excellent shot Loren.
I like both versions but favour V1 with the effect and vignette.
Lucky 13th vote! Yay Thanks David
I like both versions
But the vote goes to V2
Both are good but I prefer V1, well worked - Carole
v2, it's a lovely scene nicely captured.
Leilani, your work is renowned for its beauty, this particular image in my humble opinion, no need for 'botox'.
I knew that looked familiar - I shot it in infrared last January...
Very nice images, these two - I like both treatments equally, each in their own way.
digital painting nice colour I would go V2 but its all subjective like everything
I think you loose some of that wonderful light in the sky in v1, and so for that reason my vote will go for v2 - most unusual lighthouse
This is superb love the art effect
Worth a play ,each to his own.
I really like this. Firstly it is an unusual building. Secondly, I like the textured effect. Whether the cracked effect is the right one I guess will be down to personal taste. Steve
Thank you all for your kind comments, I am not sure it worked but it kind of did for me at the time...
Classic rule of thirds composition makes the image interesting but your processing ups the interest and makes your image different from anyone else's. Regards
