I kinda like the first one; the contrast is nicely dramatic fitting the subject. I agree that blurring the edge of the rocks might improve it a bit, but it's a great shot as it is.

Here ya go people, my final attempt at fixing the foreground rocks. I've spent literally hours trying to get the image sorted so any feedback on this latest effort would be more than welcome!

Very nice shot - I like the way the colour of the beacon contrasts with the sky, and goes with the patch of sunlight.

I think Bahadir is referring to the two concrete posts in the bottom right and some of the rocks to the left of them - as they seem to be 'painted in' (they look outlined against the sea).If you could blur those edges maybe so they aren't so sharp? But it's up to you...

I really like the pair of rocks at the right, and I actually prefer them emphasised, be it brighter or outlined or both. To my eye, they point at the drama out to sea like a pair of fingers. Their crisp, contrasty outline reminds me of the eerie light one sees when there's a really dark sky just before or after a heavy shower, and the illumination is coming like a searchlight through a hole. The sun might, I'm not sure, bein the wrong place for that to be literally true of the foreground lighting, but I get that same feelinganyway.

I'd love to see any of these versions somewhat bigger. The composition deserves it. Please could we see itif you make any more?

That's s beautiful composition, and the lighting's gorgeous. It looks too PhotoShopped to me though, especially theborder between the rocks and the water. That might be because the pic's so compressed, so I'dlove to see a bigger version.

Glorious, magnificent! Thanks for posting it bigger!

It exhibits to fine effect the textures in the foreground, the geometricpathways leading theviewer's eye around, the real or apparent surreal lighting, and even the concrete 'fickle fingers of fate'. I love it. I left it on the screen so that my family saw & admired it as they rushed off to work.

There'scertainly animprovement, IMO As with arranging a bunch of flower there's really noclear cut measure to endan edit other thanan inner voice proclaming ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! :-)

Btw, quite agreed withBigfootpete'sreference to my humble suggestion; )
