Hi

Thanks for the clicks and comments on yesterdays upload. This is one I processed a few weeks back while I had no internet, so decided I would upload it today.

Have a nice Sunday, the weather here is beautiful.

Thanks for looking

Stunning! 10++ out of 10 for me. Great composition and the sky contributes so much to its effectiveness.

Thanks Paul, much appreciate the comment, wasnt too sure about the bright spot in the sky, but I quite like the fact its directly above the lighthouse. Thanks to everyone who's clicked too.

That's a cracking image. I was almost tempted to link to a shot in my gallery taken from the same spot exactly at what appears to be the same focal length. Clearly we think along similar compositional lines. This works so well in mono too.

Reducing the brightness in that patch of sky has given some lovely tones throughout the rest of the image, and that sky is superb.

The lighthouse is taken against the most perfect part of the sky. A beautiful mono image..........Sandy
