[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A high view of the Paradise Island Lighthouse as one enters Nassau's port. At first I wasn't happy with this, but after looking at some of the other shots of it on the Internet, it's not too bad.

Reduced exposure on the background sky by 1 stop, used some tone mapping and added a slight vignette.

Hi Werner,
Very attractive high POV for this panorama.
There's a good depth into the perspective.
Very natural colors adorned with perfect lighting.
Very neat and sharp.

Very interesting POV. I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be happy with this one. Very good colours too.

I'd love to be able to capture a shot like this. Terrific POV, nicely framed in the shot, good depth of field and a pretty shot.
I think well done!

Hi Werner,
lovely blue colours in the sea and sky - good PoV (from a cruise ship?)

Hello Werner,
this high class composition works very well indeed with the vertical corners well used and each important element just where it should be.
Great shot.

Hi Werner,

The image is pleasant to look at with blue water and blue sky, 'old' architecture in front, and 'new' in back (hotels/residential, I guess). Beautiful scene.


Hi Werner...this shot is very nice...great diagonal composition with excellent light and tones....nice work.


Beautiful! The water look so clear and invitingly warm. I like the pov and it has good dof with nice details. wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
