Thanks to all for comments, votes and stopping to look at my last effort. Much appreciated Smile

Longhips Lighthouse off Land's End, shot from Porthcurno Beach, Southwest Cornwall.

This is a microscopic crop from a standard 4/3 frame, shot on a particularly un-photogenic, dull, drab day and will, no doubt, be passed by because of the small size. Ah, well.

Having rejected it a couple of times, I rediscovered this composition hidden within. I used a bit of judicious colour and contrast work to bring out what "presence" there was and ended up quite liking it. Hope you do too.

Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks Paul and Lucy and you other two!
At least this little gem (imo Wink) hasn't slipped under everyone's radar!

It caught my eye too. I guess since it is a crop that you can't print it large? Too bad. The wave is quite well timed. Thanks for the kind words about my PF. I will have you know that I take lots of shots that are complete rubbish. You just don't see them!

Very nice of you to drop by, Patrick!
And thanks for the comment. I'll have to look into a larger version if I can ever rescue my original RAW file from my busted disk - hopefully later this month.
