Hi Jane.
Nice and very interesting image.
Beautiful composition.Well done.
Best regards.Alin.

Nicely done, I like the textured sand and the shadowy light on it, the bright sky colours reflected in the sand and the well placed lighthouse. Well done.

Hi Jane,
The light and your low POV are wonderful. The texture of the sand and the subtle reflection of the lighthouse and clouds lead the eye wonderfully into the photo.
Is the lighthouse no longer in use because it is leaning or is that just that the photo is tilted? I assume it's the latter and that is something which is highly important whit seascapes.

Hi Jane
Very nice POV. I like the shapes in in sand in the FG. Colors are great.
I agree with Niek : the lighthouse should not have been tilted. I propose a small workshop to correct it.
Best regards

Nice low P.O.V. and exposure. Is this light house hanging over to the right or am I wrong?

Best regards,


Hi Jane,

Lovely detail and colours,the foreground sand detail is very good.

Hello Jane,

Excellent light and contrast, good DOF and POV.
It's a pity the small size!
Congratulations and TFS

Hi Jane,
beautiful sky and good detail in the FG, I was expecting a much smaller aperture for the DoF that you achieved, nice low PoV
