I thought it interesting that this wee one had a B&W outfit that looked similar to the skin on the Hattaras Lighthouse. (I removed the smaller lighthouse and put the larger one from the same series for more balance and impact.) f:8 at 1-125/sec with a 12-24 ultra wide angle lens.

    ..Delores..I have to admit I am not a fan of people moving and adding components...but I really, really like this photo, and the similarities in patterns...I dont t hink it would have worked nearly as well with a smaller LH...nice photo, I like the feel and the composition...well done!

Good morning, Robert!! Thank you for taking time to post your thoughts on my image. I guess being honest about photo editing is a chance one takes...there's always the risk an imaage won't be as "appreciated" and some can be downright dismissed! Jim and his staff have advised us to be honest with such "enhancements" thus the reason for posting my honest work here. Bet you would have not known otherwise!! I think your comment is HIGHLY complimentary considering how you feel about such "enhancements". THank you for taking time to post!! Have a great holiday!!
