Some nice elements in this Nick, particularly the light catching the ridges in the fg rocks. The number of lights flaring across the Mersey are quite intrusive though and fight for competition - especially that really big one - possibly even winning over the lighthouse.

Might be a reason for the passing traffic ... but unless people say then you won't know I suppose ... a common problem of mine to Sad

Still gets my vote though,

For any of those who might have doubts, go look large to see the magic.

Like your composition Nick and the colours and lights are great.
Good foreground details too.
Well worth the tricky walk out.

Thanks everyone, and a big thanks Paul, I really appreciate it - I nearly took out most of the large flare - and will do so for the print (I'm awaiting on some more ink). I'm not 100% convinced with the prime is mightily sharp, but as its quite an old design it does suffer from flare quite a bit - here most of it helps - but not all.

EDIT : Thanks Melanie for the award really appreciated.

You do stay up late to get your shots of late Nick but it proves to be worth it, as said cracking light on those rocks as for the flare doesn't worry to much but I know you will do whatever for the print

Thanks everyone. As Les mentioned I've consciously started to stay longer before heading home (or back to the hotel).

What amazes me is the colours that are still in the sky often invisible to the naked eye - this was at 9:30 a few weeks back when sunset was at 8PM.

I actually think the flare adds to the shot, and the strips of light on the fg rocks is lovely. Cracking image, and well worth staying out for!

Looks good to me Nick and I quite like the flare.

9 May 2010 8:56PM
Excellent shot but would prefer it without the big flare. That said, this image easily gets my click.

That's a very special shot Nick and I've gotta agree that sparkle adds another dimension to the shot

Really like this shot Nick, and also like the fact that you didn't pack up just after the sun dissapeared!

Great comp and pin sharp.

A really superb image Nick. The reflected light on the wet rocks makes the image for me.

I agree - some would avoid the lights but I think they enhance the image.

Fab' night shot Nick, beautiful light - think the starburst is quite effective! I like the light catching the fg rocks!

'Navigating the rocks in pitch black was a "challenge".' but well worth it for such a great result... Dave
