Thought I would give attaching a photo a try.

It's one of my early attempts with my Pentax K200D. I'm still learning the digital ropes so to speak.

This is a cropped version of the original.

Welcome to the forums, bluenose! I liked your interest in attaininga drawingperspective as well as a foreground in your capture. Yet, if youhad matched the diagonal line of the wall to the lighthouse with the left bottom cornerof the frame, and cropped off a littlefrom the right handside you'd havean ever greater impact, imo. I also think that the picture can benefit from some sharpening witha high radius, especially,which would provide some contrast as well.

Cheers!

Thanks for your comments.

My K200D is quite a change from my old Spotmatic F as are the computer programmes for digital editing.

For now my approach is to work through the various capture modes on the camera by selecting one setting and using it for a week's worth of pictures and then on to the next setting. When I view the pictures I should be able to determine what worked and what didn't.

As for the photo editing, I am using the FastStone programme for the time being and again I am experimenting with the different ways images can be edited.

While things can be a bit overwhelming at times it is good to be getting back into photography.

Again, I thank you for taking time to pass on your comments.

Regards

I have aYashica Lynx 14Ewith a fabulous 1.4 lenson the shelf remaining from those good old film days : )Actually I made the transition into digital witha canon powershot andhave beenusing theK10D for ayear and half now and experienced various editing softwares, freewares, etc. FastStone is a niceone indeed with a quite handy raw converter, still I'd strongly reccommend the Photoshop which includeseverything you'll ever need!

It's the outer lighthouse at Pt. Dalhousie (St. Catharines). There is a channel out to Lake Ontarioto the left in the picture and moorings for the marina are on the right. The day I was there it was about -15 C and a strong wind.

I tried to get out to the Port Dalhousie light house in the summer but I didn't want to venture down roads that looked to be off limits. Maybe try it again sometime. I spent a few weekends last summer capturing lighthouses along the shores of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie around Western NY.
