Very beautiful, Mike.

The soft palette in the sky morphing to the brighter yellow makes this subtle yet dynamic.

Very well done.

On suggestion - you might consider cropping out the sand tracks on the bottom.

Hi Michael, Soft,pastel sky with the lighthouse nicely framed within the image. Good comp but agree with Lance regarding the tracks.

I like the composition and the clean gradient in the sky colors. Very nice.

This is purely a matter of personal preference, but I would lean toward taking the blue/cyan cast out of the sand and even adding a warming filter.

Hey Michael,
Still in Utah but heading home.....One of my favorite lighthouses! I like what David did to the FG blues.....works better for my tastes too. I do think a crop off the bottom....to more of a pano eliminating the tracks will only strengthen this very well done image.

Thanks for the suggestions. Just got back and will try reprocessing on the main system.

I guess I'm the only one here that likes the blue foreground (though it does run counter to lighter brings forward / dark moves things away). I really liked Roman crop suggestion. All in all a great image.
