Attractive atmospheric New Caledonia scene with the lonely lighthouse in the middle of the ocean, enhanced by the stormy weather and mountainous backdrop, and image contrast.

I love this atmospheric picture. There is a very good tonal range. The lighthouse makes a great subject surrounded by the misty soft greys in the BG.
Kind Regards, Ann
