7/7 Bellisimo trabajo,,,limpio. color perfecto y y un encuadre de Cine,,, un cordial saludo.
Nice So you did make it there early, the grass still looks wet. Great color in the sky.
Lovely composition - The position of the rising sun behind the lighthouse adds a fine touch. Excellent use of multi exposures.
Wonderful image. Love how you do that merging of different exposures. Magic!
unreal. gorgeous. lighting natural?
Great shot! Wonderful shot. Have you tried to shoot at 1/2 hour before sunrise or 1/2 hour after sunset for 2 minutes at f/22? That seems to work well for me without the layers.

Beautiful work Wilson.
A "lucky" expert you are!
Interesting composition because of the ship and execution.
nice shot !6/6
Wilson, you always do a great job with your colors. I like the look you end up with, and I like the fact that you don't shy away from subtle Photoshop effects. Very pleasant!
Very nice work. I wish, however, the purple fringing over the room of the lighthouse could be addressed.
Definitely a moment of good catch!
Wilson, I like the tonal range in this shot. How are you blending your shots? Are you using the new Photoshop CS2 HDR file merge function?
I like the difference of the stable building and the adventure of the cruiser taking off at sunrise.
This one is Stunning Wilson. You have really perfected this technique! I love the scale of the building and ferry...all very dreamlike.
Thank you all for your feedback, PETER: Thanks, it was all natural light without flash. MATT: Lighting is natural. I adjusted highlight and shadow area separately however. TONI: Thank you. HOWARD: Glad you like it. EMAD: Glad you think so! FRANK: Yes, one Saturday morning. This is right after the sprinkler system stopped spraying! PNINA: Thanks for your feedback. TIINA: Appreciate your comment. CHERYLN: Only few minutes of good light, so here we go. BILIANA: Thanks for commenting. JASON: Very glad you think so, Jason. KEN: Appreciative of your comment always. JULIO: Mucho gracias. RICHARD: Thank you, sir! JAMES: Thanks for your comment, James. NICK: No, I haven't. I'm afraid I'll fall as sleep waiting that long. Nevertheless I'll keep that in mind and might try it out next time. ^_^ CJ: Thanks. VANCE: I didn't really notice that, but thanks for commenting. LINDA: Thanks for your feedback, Linda. JON: Thanks, Jon. I took 2 exposures, one for highlight, and one for shadow. I then combine them into the same image after adjusting each layer to my heart's content. Didn't use HDR merge function. ALEXANDRA: Thanks for your insights, Alexandra. REINER: Thanks. I work hard to get good at being lucky. ^_^ JAYME: Thanks for your take, Jayme. A big problem with more to the right is that there is an ugly white brick apartment building right there. Wish it wasn't there. This will have to do for now. COLIN: Thanks for your comment. Wilson ^_^

Beautifully captured. Light & form terrific. But.... I think the balance is off. I want more on the right and less on the bottom. Of course, I could be wrong. What do I know? Nothing! :) As usual, perfectly exposed.
Nice pearly light and good detail in the foreground and building.
Hi Wilson, Now all is said I'm here to echo all the great comments. I like this lighthouse because it looks like a doll's house, so small and sweet and it has such a funny shape. The whole scene is great here. Beautiful light, wonderful colours and a very particular angle. A very peaceful place on earth! Greetings from Holland Wilson:) Ada.

I have to say that I like the sky a lot, but my eye wants to see more contrast in the lighthouse and the flora in the mid- and foreground....
Very nice work. Looks like you've used some type of HDR technique. I don't really like the boat coming out of the lighthouse. Otherwise, very nice.
