This is another lighthouse in Newfoundland, actually, to be more precise, the white building is the lighthouse Keepers house.
Its the furthest Easterly point in all of North America, called Cape Spear, a very popular tourist attraction.
For the locals of Newfoundland its also a popular point b\c its the first area in North America where the new year hits come Jan 1.
If i could change anything, it would be to invest in a more attractive bench! Kind of ruins the appeal of the Keepers house..but hey, its out of my control!
Have a great week

I really like the simplistic composition you've used here. The repeating patterns of light and dark on the bench, fence and the wall suggest that this photo might be just as amazing in b&w. I also like the minimalistic framing - very appropriate...

Craig I can see excellent balance of composition in this frame. Indeed the empty space of blue sky plays an integral part of this photo. Second the bench is in balance with the white house on the right. Perhaps as a critique that you perhaps already have now in hindsight is a desire to see just a little less house on the right and a little more room allowed in the frame for the bench on the left. Thanks for sharing from your trip on the east coast.

I like this close frame showing only few elements and playing with the contrast between the white wood and the sky, underlined by the long clouds.
It works nicely.

This is such an immaculate composition, very artistic with the tight framing and the horizontal and vertical lines of the fence and the house. The bench looks fine to me, in fact if it was as pristine as the house, it'd look a bit fake. The sharpness and those beautiful strong colours in combination with the beautiful sky just blow me away. Great job - have a happy week.

immagine di grande bellezza che nella sua semplicità esprime l'occhio e la bravura del fotografo.
Elementi perfettamente composti e grande luce su una bella immagine,

You have made good use of the strong graphical lines offered by the fence and the boarding of the house. The composition is perfectly framed and has very good colours and sharpness. An innovative composition; I like it a lot.

Interesting composition, with the fence angle helping to add to the depth between seat and building. Lovely colours and well exposed light and shadows. White timber against blue sky has something about it, I think, as in so many yacht photos. Perhaps I would crop from the right to just before the windows of the house, making the photo a bit more square and subtracting a bit of weight from the right. Just a suggestion.

Another great picture from your travels! I love the simplicity of this composition. Stunning clarity and detail, the light and colours are excellent too.I think it is balanced just right. TFS

j'aime beaucoup cette photo bucolique de cette maison blanche et de ce banc en avant de cette clôture qui découpe ce beau ciel bleu.

you always find the right element for a good composition! The white lighthouse created a strong contrast with the blu sky and the gree field.
The bench well balance the composition. Congratulations and TFS.

optimal the quality and the colors of this image, fantastic geometries. It compliments.
yquem46 (38750) 2010-07-26 10:16
Rather minimalist one but beautiful and graphic, due to the separation of the image in 2 halfs, the blue sky at left and the white house at right + a bench and a nice white fence
An excellent compo and a clear luminous shot
Have a nice day

J'aime la rigueur de la composition avec la façade, la barrière, le ciel et l'herbe. Beau graphisme également !

Très simple et très joli!
Beaux contrastes entre bleu intense et blanc, le tout bien cadré.
jjcordier (79295) 2010-07-27 5:59
Une composition lumineuse et très originale avec ces lignes verticales de la clôture qui s'opposent aux horizontales de la maison. Bien vu!

This classic architecture of this building looks very nice. I like the perfect lines here in contrast to the lines of the fence. Well done.

sorry, replying late because I have no more than 20 options per day!
colors in this photo are typically Greek. perhaps now, post-holiday, I see all in these color combinations.
the composition is superb! Fine horizontal and vertical lines. All-in-thirds. contrasting colors are beautiful. nice job and nice design.
