Lighthouse on the Hill

Posted by
Kathe (Marquette, Michigan, United States) on 20 May 2009 in Landscape & Rural.

Yet another shot of Marquette's lighthouse.

NIKON D40 1/640 second F/6.3 ISO 200 70 mm

It is a lovely capture Kathe, especially because of this bold red color of the building against muted green and blue sky. It stands out and gives the picture focus.
The branches though on the right are a bit of distraction and I would crop them out together with the bottom sand area and the big boulder.
This would move the building slightly off center and strengthen the composition.

@Roman: Thanks, Roman. Those are great suggestions.

A great shot Kathe. The house is very large and bright. I have to say, I like your choice of framing and composition in this shot.
