    Hi All

    Was on the east coast of Canada last weekend, Halifax and Peggy's Cove to be specific, and took some shots.

    Here is the first one I have had a chance to give a quick process to. The sky just would not cooperate and give me some blue sky with fluffy clouds :grumpy:.

    Let me know what you think.

    Trying a new border to, so let me know what you think of it as well.

    Cheers

    I agree with you about the sky, but you did darn fine otherwise. Great shot and I love the composition. The rocks look great! Have you tried some burning in PS?

    Thanks Montana!!

    I haven't tried Burning yet, it was just a quick process to put it up. The sky was very gray, so I don't know how much I can pull out of it anyway.

    Cheers

    Yes fluffy clouds would have been nice but you got a good shot regardless. Love the foreground rocks :)

    Can I be the odd one out? I like the sky. It feels very calm and peaceful to me. The rocks are way cool too!

    I like the sky and the crop. I don't like the border. It seems too "heavy" for the scene.

    Border: Can't go wrong witha black border IMO.

    Sky: I like it too, but i'm not one to be offended by a washed out sky especially when the subject of the photo is spot-on, like the lighthouse and rocks.

    Crop: How about killing two birds with one stone and crop more of the sky and get back to a more 2x3 ratio. I don't think you need so much sky above the lighthouse. This, IMO, would make this good shot great.

    Very nice, the sky really doesn't bother me, there's a touch of detail there. The rocks in the forground do a nice job of leading the eye to the lighthouse, nicely composed. All and all, I say frame it. Looks good.
