On photo Monhegan Island, ME in the Lighthouse challenge (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

timoteotresgatos: Nice composition! I've been there and have some very similar photos of the same lighthouse. I really love that island! I was surprised to see this photo here! I kind of thought Monhegan was a "secret" little island that few people visited.

I do like the composition but also feel that the reds and greens are too exaggerated. The green of grass, the red of the roofs, the brick building, and the very top of the lighthouse, the lichen on the side of the lighthouse seem pretty over-the-top. I really like the way the whites of the buildings were captured - they are nicely white and yet you can see all the detail and edges in the clapboards on the outside of the buildings.

Just my two cents worth, FWIW.

Thank you for the critque. I'll try your suggestions. Yes, Monhegan Island is a "secret" that not many people know about. My wife and I go there often.i

Believe it or not, the shot is not HDR. I followed your suggestion to remove some of the distortion...WOW! Thanks.
