At risk of beating a dead horse (this is my third post of the Portland Head Light), here's another view. I guess it's just a great subject.

Thanks for looking.

Very nice composition. First I thought that the foreground steals the image but looking at makes it just fulfill the perfect picture.

Great photo but I think the vivid colors of the vegetation on the right are not in keeping with the overall mood of the scene. I'd like to see it with with the vegetation desaturated a bit.

I might even suggest moving a bit to the left and not making the vegetation such a prominent part of the photo. I want to focus on the foggy lighthouse and the vegetation is distracting.


What? Me Worry?

I originally had a more desaturated version. however, i felt that the increased color in the vegetation help to increase the sense of depth.

thanks again,

Very nice shot and I agree with you on the saturation. Looks really good.
