What a beautiful image, Brian. Good choices! That wave carries us right to the lighthouse, and, you're right, it gives us a great sense of place. The clouds, even the whole sky, seems to radiate from the "island." Another of yours in my favs. #8296821

Dianna Murphy April 23, 2010

Brian... per our discussion this is one I would try again. It a great shot/image. I think it could easily be gold. Try cropping so that your horizon isn't in the middle - crop some of the top and right sides so the rocks almost touch the right edge. It's a tab bit flat so maybe work on the lighting with a levels or curves adj. I don't know what your photoshop skills are but you can send it to me if you'd like me to try for you????? #8564440

Harriet Feagin level-classic April 03, 2013

I have to disagree with the previous post. I think that the centering is accented by the clouds in a very compelling way. I like the water treatment. In this case the blur of a long exposure would not have had as good an effect as this capture. I really like this photo. Nubble is one of my favorite sites and this photo is very, very good. #10640827
