Penmon Lighthouse

By geoffrey baker
A big thankyou to Andrew (Proberts) for sharing his camera for me to take this shot.

I waited ages for this guy to move but he was'nt going anywhere so I took the shot with him in it thinking I'd clone him out later but now I think his orange shirt really makes this shot work.

By the time I'd showed Andrew this shot the guy had moved away so we called him back and asked him to pose again so Andrew could take some shots too and he very kindly obliged, well, if you dont ask.......Wink

I really like this one a lot Geoff. The strong colours of the lighthouse and the Tango Man really give it some impact. The composition is also perfectly balanced. Cracking work.

Great shot and fun story.
The orange T shirt against that lovely blue sky and the green of the seaweed is a good touch.
Excellent composition, good image.

Same as I said to Andrew Geoff. Can't understand why these aren't getting more attention. Lovely capture of a great looking place.

Thanks folks, yeah Phil, I thought this one would've flown, doesn't look like it's even going to get a RC and It was taken using a Canon 20D too Wink shows how much I know then eh?

Thanks for the mod John, I only just noticed it there, don't know how long ago you did it Sad
It works well, if it wasn't for that lovely green seaweed-covered stone I might have cropped off the bottom too.
Thanks mate Smile

Thanks Fred, an RC at last, I thought this photo would've got one much quicker than this though, but it has been holiday season I suppose.
