Great sky, wonderful texture in the rocks, and great placement of the lighthouse to draw the eye into the photo!

I find the OOF timothy grass heads a bit distracting, but they do give depth. Others may like it

Always love lighthouses! I think you could get rid of most of the oof grass without too much trouble in photoshop, but not sure its worth it. I like the picture anyway.

Default Less the Grass

You guys are right-looks a lot better IMHO. Only took a few minutes to change.
Thanks

I also like lighthouses and your shot. I agree it's better without the foreground grass.

Nice lighthouse and you caught it flashing.

I was 18 years old and worked for a florets driving a delivery van and had to take a large funeral wreath from Boston to Vineyard Haven. I haven't been back to the Vineyard since but my wife is on a big kick to go there and also Nantucket.

MUCH better without the grass. And a very nice job with the processing, too.

Only a short trip on the Island Queen out of Falmouth to Oak Bluffs. Rented a car without much notice and had a great day-highly recommend it.
