I get a really good feel of the place from this one Ian. And as for where you went wrong? --------------------- You should've spent a MONTH there.
All the best, have a great weekend,

I like your low angle, the light on the building, the deep blue sky and general composition. No critique from me, Ian.

Thanks Tony and John Smile

Tony, this lighthouse is within the grounds of the Roman archeological site at Pafos. Entrance is near the harbour and only costs a couple of quid. Only being there for a week, we didn't travel all over, but other places we did see that I'd recommend are :-
Aphrodites Rock (in fact all along the coastal road between Pafos and Limassol); Agios Georgios (just past Coral Bay, north of Pafos); Caledonia Falls (near Troodhos and about a 2km walk to reach it, but worth it).

I'll be posting pics of these when I've sorted them out Smile

Cheers
Ian

Nice shot Ig2509.

I've uploaded 2 mods to try and demonstrate my line of thinking.

As usual they put poles & cables in all the wrong places so if you could have moved left a few feet and recomposed you might have been able to avoid it altogether. The bit of land on the left does nothing for the photo IMHO.

The arrow is a rough guide to where I might have stood (probably even more left though). The second shot is a crop to illustrate what I would have been trying to achieve. Burnt in the sky (very crudely) lower left to make it a bit more uniform, as the polariser ran out of effect there.

You might have made a feature of the bush/rocks to lead the eye up towards the lighthouse with a lower camera angle, looking upwards. Exposure looks good although the light is harsh (mid-day?) Can't have it all when we're on hols, eh.

Only other thing I might have tried to do would be to get the V of the roof visible so there was some red tiles on the right of the building. Dunno if that would have been feasible.

Good effort and I hope you find my comments of help. CHeer,s Goggz

Thanks for the crit and mods Goggz - I appreciate you taking the time. I can see what you mean about the change of angle and think that would have been better.

Yes, the light was very harsh (early afternoon), but I had to take that as it came ... I was there with my wife to celebrate our first anniversary, so trying to plan our sight-seeing trips around the best light would have been pushing my luck a bit Smile

Cheers Ian

Umm! I was going to tell you what you did wrong, but , considering the last comment--

I was going to tell you what you did wrong was not to take me along!..........

I wish I could tell you where you are going wrong, sometimes I don't know myself where I am going wrong and worse of all no one will tell you Smile

I can't see anything wrong with this image though!
I like it!
