I love your perspective on this shot, Cora with the reversal of small/large perception, as well as your vertical composition and that eye-catching yellow to draw us in! #277706

Dan Holm 7/13/2005 12:52:09 AM

Hi Cora, this is gorgeous! I love the buoy in the FG and the lighthouse in the BG, it makes you take a closer look and pulls your eye thru the photo. #1586718

Nobu Nagase 7/13/2005 8:46:16 AM

What a great capture!!!
...had to see a lighthouse image from your New England tour...
I ditto what Jill said about the buoy in the fg..., slightly different comp from usual shots by others.. I love this... #1588123

Sandy Landon 7/13/2005 4:09:06 PM

Darren K. Fisher 7/14/2005 6:07:02 AM

OH WOW Cora this is so very well composed. I love the FG and how the rocks lead us to the lighthouse in the BG. Looks like another winner to me. #1591503

Brenda W. LaFleur 7/14/2005 11:06:17 AM

Cora, this is exceptional. I agree with Dan and Darren, this should be in the winner's circle next month. What a great perspective...wonderful lighthouse image with the buoy in the foreground. Way to go, girlfriend! #1592930

Kay E. Mahoney 7/14/2005 8:54:56 PM

Fantastic shot Cora. Love everything about it. #1594472

Cora Miller 7/14/2005 10:21:46 PM

Thanks so much Darren, Brenda, and Kay! Judging from all of the wonderful responses I guess the risk was worth the results. The tide was coming in and I was afraid I was going to get washed AWAY while waiting for everyone to get out of the way so I could get the shot. There was a sign posted about how many people had been killed walking out on the rocks and if you chose to do so you were doing it at your own risk. It was a huge relief to return to dry land. :) #1594566

Kara L. Hendricks 7/15/2005 4:05:08 PM

I love your POV on this one Cora... Spanned back far emough to see the sea find... Wonderful shot!! #1597801

Francis Cailles 8/22/2005 10:57:41 PM

let me be the first to congratulate you on this win, Cora! Such a different take on an oft photographed subject! Who would've thought....use a buoy for a very very strong foreground element! Only from a brilliant photographic mind can something like this happen. The colors just jump out of the screen. The extra effort paid off...just be careful next time, though. No picture is worth getting hurt for. As much as we love this picture and all of your work, YOU are even more precious. #1754006
