A splendid capture of this majestic Light House in such an adequate sepia treatment to render a sort of old photograph. I like the vignette around the frame. Great details in the structure and the waves with surf indicating a windy ambient.
Well done for this neat work.

Very nice work Larry!! Excellent sharpness and the mono-tone works very well here! I love the vignetting, it adds a nice dimension to the shot, pulling the focus more center.
I like the results you got with this image,to me the effect also pre dates the lighthouse,the photo appears as though it was taken many years ago.I like the sharpness & clarity of details. If you had left an individual in this scene,would it have given a good feel ,for the scale of the pier & building or not?
I also like your colour version in the WS,& noted that you would have liked to have had a cloudy sky in the scene.Hope you don't mind,I did a WS & added some blue sky & clouds,let me know what you think.Oops WS limit has been reached,will post it tomorrow.

I saw the WS and I prefer this one , is more artistic.
Amazing perspective due to a perfect pov.
Excellent pp work here. I like this atmosphere.
The sharpness is also very good.

Hi Larry, wish I had some of the software you use , you keep bringing out some great shots. I have to agree some clouds would have added a little something extra but still a great shot.Looks a bit windy on the water. Fiona

Good graphism here with excellent sharpness & tonal range. The lighthouse is well positioned on the 1/3 golden mean. Maybe a slight cw rotation as it leans to the left. I like the repetition of the lights & support 'legs' of the catwalk. Tfs!

I like your processing here, it has given the scene an atmosphere more befitting a lighthouse, rather than a sunny day.
Like you, I prefer land/seascapes to have no people, but I wonder, had you left maybe one person to indicate scale?

What a wonderful POV you have chosen to capture this scenic location, Larry!
Great focus and sharpness with amazing color tones.
The DOF is well done, and a light adds "drama" into the scene is well captured.

Many strong repetitive lines and patterns in this shot made stronger by the use of monochrome and vignetting. Nice work

The vignetting works very well here as well as your positioning of the lighthouse.
I like the effects of the waves, that appear frozen, due to your faster shutter speed.
Both a great shot and well done PP work.

This is a nice post processing work that results in a very different mood comparing to the color version. Although I still like your original image without the clouds too.
