[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Set beneath the majestic Niagara Escarpment, this little lighthouse has endured more hardship than the mariners it guided!

The first light was established in 1903 and was rebuilt several times due to the harsh conditions of Georgian Bay. Automation in 1969 finally replaced the attractive structure with a metal post and light until a group of high school students built a replica model that stands in its place today. The light once again guides boats safely back into this beautiful port.


PP: Cropped, increased contrast, sharpened areas, framed.

Hello Jan,

Your photograph demonstrates excellent clarity, with all the details pin sharp.
Good off-centre composition of the focal lighthouse, with an interesting lead from the f/g jetty.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Jan,
To begin with your first paragraph sets the tone for the image in itself. By having the rocks in the scene adds suspense to a scene where lighthouses were meant to save those mariners that occasionally fall victim to the elements, by either rock or stormy seas.
Well done...

Hi Jan,
Very nice capture and composition,
Excellent point of view and architecture of this lovely lighthouse,
good focus and sharp picture.
well done.

Very nicely balanced composition with the water on bottom and the off centered lighthouse... also a nice blue sky to enhance the chromaticism and aesthetic abstraction of the scenario.
A little bit over exposed, especially on the white areas.
Cool image :)
