About the Image(s)

Shot this image a number of years ago while at a PSA Conference in Portland, Maine.

I darkened the image and added the light in the lighthouse and converted to B/W in Google’s Snapseed application. The best of 2020 to everyone. Jerry

I have a few shots of this lighthouse, I like your composition better. Great detail and tones. Especially like the star from the light. Clouds are an added bonus. It appears a little too dark and flat though. Hope you don't mind, I made a couple adjustments.   Posted: 01/02/2020 16:58:20

My eyes were immediately caught by the star of the lighthouse. I like it very much.
The contrast is well done and the clouds are present and "soft". As it is a quite space, I prefer that than a heavy cloudy sky, even if it can be very beautiful.
The stones at the front are sharped and well structured. At my opinion, as it is a landscape (panorama), i would crop the image to 16/9 by removing the Bottom, to emphasize the panorama.   Posted: 01/09/2020 05:04:58

This a wonderful image and I agree that the light grabs my attention, but after looking at it for a while it seems just a little too big and bright. David's image is great, but I prefer Jerry's darker, more moody version. Cropping the bottom changes the emphasis and balance, but I would only crop a small amount.

You have chosen and produced a lovely image of the lighthouse and its surroundings. For me the detail and the tones are spot on and adding the light is very nice.
But when I look at this I do get the feeling of two halves, I find if I crop half the rock away from the bottom the balance is improved more to my liking.   Posted: 01/14/2020 07:10:22

Thanks for the comments everyone. Cropping and balance of light do change the impact and I do like your thoughts.   Posted: 01/21/2020 06:31:34
