    the problem with that one is for anyone who knows about Gib is that it is not a very original photograph, i personally love it but its almost a normal shot here in Gib. but if you all agree that its the best of the bunch i will enter it coz i am stuck between the 4!

    Whats the comp brief?? If it is just open to anything, maybe start to (insert generic phrase) "think outside the box". Look at things around you in a way you haven't looked at them before.

    The lighthouse is the most pleasing image on the eye, but if like you say, it has become a cliche, why not try to look at it from an angle that others have not.

    Find a spot where you can see it through a gap in a wall or creeping through blades of grass. To win a competition, you want it to grab attention and also make people think "Aw why didn't I do that"

    If it's too late to re-shoot, id pick Lighthouse!

    yeah i have thought of that also, but this place is a sheer drop all round except from where i shot and the road beside hence the cliche about the same shot... i would need access to a boat or a plane to shoot from a different angle! lol

    Anyways... Keep em coming!

    The bottom photograph of the Harbor and ships is good, a little underexposed. Did you take it late in the day? Is it true B+W or a conversion? If it is a conversion, you may be able to rework it for more contrast and better highlights. As I said before, I like the top one for the technique. I did not care as much for the entire hospital shot that you posted before, but it was interesting. I also like the lighthouse. What about a night shot of it with the spot approaching but not quite to you?
    I now have to figure out how to turn off the italics that came on unexpectedly. So much for computer literacy.
    Good Luck
