    This is a funny place to get to because you have to ignore no fewer than 5 no trespassing, "Residents Only," and Private Yacht Club signs to arrive at this gorgeous lighthouse and 1/2 mile long sea wall constructed of gorgeous granite blocks that facilitate a nice long walk to the smaller light structure at the end. There's even a parking lot there, which leaves you scratching your head about all the no trespassing signs and other attempts at deterring your arrival at this destination. Nothing identifies it as a Coast Guard installation, but the website says that it currently houses Coast Guard personnel. The sign on the fence claims that it's now a private residence and no trespassing is allowed.

    Comments and critiques always appreciated.

    #1 - Seems to lack sharpness in the buildings...looks like you shot this one wide open (f/5.6) at 300mm. Stopping it down to f/11 or higher might have kept the image sharper..

    #2 - Looks like your sensor needs cleaning.

    #3 - I'm wondering how this image would look if the camera was in portrait orientation.

    #4 - The horizon isn't level. Interesting to see the difference in the water on both sides of the breakwater...matches the rocks used. Rough water and rocks on the right, calm water and smooth rocks on the left.

    #5 - The horizon is really off in this shot...it's leaning to the right.

    #6 - The horizon is off and the building looks soft...looks like you shot this one wide open (f/5.6) at 300mm. Stopping it down to f/11 or higher might have kept the image sharper.

    #7 - Lunch time. Are those tiny pieces of crab on the rocks next to the gull?
