Very nice. Dramatic. I don't think that I'd crop it at all. Seems like a good balanced photo. Thanks for sharing.

I know this is supposed to capture movement but it looks OOF to me, even the stationary obhects.

I think it could really benefit from a bit of sharpening and some brightening.

truth is the movement came from 55+ mph gusts that didn't allow me to keep anything steady even with a shield and tripod. for that reason, I added the blur to give it a painted effect rather than go for a tack sharp image. I may try a little selective sharpening as you suggest and a little more dodge and burn would probably work here as well. Thanks.

I really like this as well. Since there is so little color in he shot, you might consider converting it to b/w.

i like it, though I would crop out the grass if i where to print it, cool shot. I take pictures of that light house all the time.

I wound up doing a few more "versions" and it definitely works much better in b/w. The grass has to go and I cropped out a good bit and cloned some more but there was no way to entirely remove all of it without compromising more of the image. Such is life.

knauf, pm me anytime if you feel like shooting together. I'm always open to meeting other photogs in the area.
