So interesting to see so much clarity and light on the foreground flowers, and so fogged out light on the lighthouse. Well done.

Another ethereal shot, Jack ... with such a lovely foreground.

A beautiful, atmospheric looking shot. The fog enhances the lighthouse so much. It seems to pick up the yellows of the foreground. Fine image.

Excellent composition in this outstanding image. The field is a great draw for the eye but does not overwhelm the wonderful moody feel of the lighthouse and building in front of it. Superb

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Great selective focus :)

10 Jul 2010 9:06pm

@MARIANA: Thank you. Actually the look is all created by the fog; it moved in and out like pea soup.
