About the Image(s)

Shot with a Samsung cellphone at ISO 50, 6mm, f/2.4, 1/280 sec. Shot from our motel room at Canon Beach. The Ecola creek runs down the beach in front, so that is basically fresh water depending on the tide with the Pacific across the beach and Tillamock Light in the distance over a mile offshore. This light was considered by many to be the most dangerous light in the US system. At time spay over the top of the light, with no really safe way to resupply in any significant surf. You get some idea with the long lens shot of the light with the stairs going up from the sea.

Hi Stan,
You created a warm, peaceful scene with the Light in the background. Nicely done. I also like the original Light image on it's own.   Posted: 11/06/2021 17:45:09

This image is taken with a 400mm lens on a micro 4/3 camera, 800 mm equivalent. That light is over a mile out to sea. Hard to get a very good shot, but I wanted it to document what the light is like.   Posted: 11/28/2021 20:04:12

I agree with Barbara that the original image is quite special. Did you do a composite for your submission?   Posted: 11/07/2021 10:27:05

Hi Stan,
The clouds in your image are interesting and have very vivid colors. There are a lot of interesting lines in this image, leading the eye through the composition.   Posted: 11/07/2021 16:34:37

I think the view and the time of day with the light is excellent. A slight tilt in the horizon I think.the inclusion of the foreground water with the silhouetted person is a bonus.   Posted: 11/13/2021 05:39:38

Hi Stan, You captured the moment beautifully. The silhouetted person gives perspective and adds intimacy to the scene. One tiny nit - I am distracted by the upright tree limb (I think that's what it is) on the beach. Beautiful tones, and the birds are a nice additional touch.   Posted: 11/17/2021 09:07:48

Hi Stan,
A beautiful image! I like the tonal gradation and the inclusion of the silhouette on the beach. Perhaps one thing to consider is ever so gently increasing the exposure on the beach so the viewer can see where the silhouette actually is.
