Portland Lighthouse Sunrise

Published in Landscapes 13 days ago

This is a very photogenic scene and most people shoot from the sides to include waves and rocks. Let's see if using wild flowers as foreground turns out well or not.

Magnifica composicion, gran detalle en luz y color. Muy bien controladas las altas luces. Quizás esté un poco saturada, pero eso va en gustos. Buen trabajo.

Magnificent composition, great detail in light and color. Very well controlled high lights. It may be a bit saturated, but that goes well. Good job.

Your decision to do a bit different from other photographers who shot this location is awesome. The flowers as the foreground really gives artistic and calming mood impact to this photograph. It works very well with the sunrise light that built a warm feeling and sense of serenity. You also did a good composition management and exposure too. I choose to publish this. Congratulations!

This is a lovely landscape shot, Jay. The flowers, the lighthouse, and the warm sunset tones all combined well to give you a feeling of seaside harmony. Well done!
