I love the color and atmosphere created by the horizon and the separation of color. To me the image tells of a stark and lonely place isolated from the land. I think the foreground rocks add balance and help lead my eyes to the lighthouse. I really like that the long exposure of just 4 secs. didn't take all the texture out of the water. In my opinion you make really nice land/seascapes. I think you could improve the balance of this image by removing enough of the empty sky to put the horizon nearer to the 1/3 line. Would love to see this printed on glass or metal. Very nice.   Posted: 01/07/2020 22:01:20
