*click* i like the composition and i think the contrast level you have set it too adds to the overall atmosphere and mood of the image. mumbles lighthouse is always a great view for photography.

Thank you very much for your prompt comments. Its a fine line with digital imaging between a good shot and overdone manipulation/adjustment. Still a bit of a virgin to this Photoshop lark so, feedback is really appreciated. Thanks again.

I like the contrasty feel. It emphasises the drama of the shot.
2 Feb 2005 4:17AM
Wow, it's fantastic! Love it.

Fantastic. Love the line you created with rocks and waves and the composition is excellent. Main subject is centered but this works well here.

Lovely composition and movement in the waves. The use of a wide-angle lens adds to the drama. I think the contrast is a bit high, especially in the upper half of the picture. Still merits a click though.

Excelent, the BW really emphesises the look and feel of the water, against the rocks.

The tide almost seems to drag you to the light house... Where is it?

Click great shot.

Fantastic shot. I've taken a couple of shots of Mumbles lighthouse but I thought they were a bit dull. After looking at this I now think my shots were really dull!

Works for me Tony, good shot, well treated.

ps Many thanks, you must have spent a bit of time browsing through the portfolio. Unfortunately I am not related to Joe, but I do have one of his calendars on my wall.

I do like the composure and especially the shutter speed choosen and don't mind the contrast which would probably look a lot better on paper than on screen.

While the focal point is ultimately the lighthouse, the eye-catching foreground is a good lead-in to the photo.

I'm very fond of a lot of contrast in B and W so it very much appeals to me in terms of composition and tone.

Wow this is execlent - love the foreground.

Too Contrasty? Possibly, but I still like the effect, and would not advise you to change it. world love to see this as a print.
