Nice work as usual Cedric! I like the composition, good leading lines, which lead the eye to the subject well. As usual your attention to detail is good - the lighthouse is perfectly straight

This feels a bit too "static" for me though? I want to see more movement.

I might also be tempted to darken the moon a little to make the lunar detail show more clearly? I know it's probably correct, but the moon feels too bright to me. That's possibly a side effect of not going outside for a few months though

Nice.

I believe in wabi-sabi :a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. I appreciate beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete" in nature.

Thank you Lan!

It was a quiet evening, unfortunately I didn't find a way to make it more "dramatic" (and the sky was a bit blander than I would have preferred). But it's a good memory of what my wife and I felt when being there.

I'll check out the moon:-)

I think that this is a very nicely done picture and I like it but I did pay attention to Lan's criticism and wonder how it would look with an exposure that showed the movement of the water instead of the long exposure.
