It's just great. The sky is so heavy, so detailed, so... beautiful! For me it's the best part of the picture. Trees and buildings just add up perfectly to create contrast. Great mood, great work!

Super shot. It can be a real challenge to get nice skies and nice color and details in the foreground. You have a method that works!

What a beautiful photograph you have here. The exposure is wondeful. I also photograph lighthouses and I always ask myself is it good enough to hang on my living room wall. You have a wonderful wall hanger here. Very well done.

très joli paysage, ciel assez incroyable

It's a wonderful picture, though I do think that you have maybe been a little bit too heavy with the black card on the sky and it is a little bit under-exposed, particularly at the top right hand corner. But, other than that, nice composition.
You may find it easier to use a set of neutral density graduated filters. This would give you a greater degree of control over the variations in exposure between the top and bottom of the picture. I would meter the exposure for the sky, then the ground and apply a graduated filter to balance out the exposure.
Another option is to take two pictures - one overexposed, one underexposed and blend then in photoshop.

Did you use gradient in Photoshop or filter Cokin 121? It looks a little bit unnatural - it is to big difference betwen sky and ground.

I love this sky. And even more so with the strong colors of the land. This is the kind of contrast I love. It's so crisp and vivid, too. Just so strong. Like two worlds coming together. This dark sky and this lit world. The tower and antenna are great objects for this scenery. It anchors the eye at this end but also allows it to move outward into the water. Very nicely done.

Wonderful picture - the sky is so dark & threatening, a great contrast to the bright green colours in the foreground & of course the lighthouse itself.
jocke71 (566) 2005-04-16 9:47
By all means a great photo. The view is astonishing, colorful and with a great composition with focal points "on thirds". I like how the sky has both a dark area and a lighter areas, thus giving it dynamics.
chappy77 (306) 2005-05-22 8:20
Wow, very powerful shot. The contrast from the foreground and the background works very well.

Nice! 3 seconds of exposure to get this picture? It was full night? Really great the contrast between brightness and darkness. Regards.
