Fanad Head Lighthouse at Dawn
This has to be one of my favorite lighthouses as it is so favorably positioned on the west coast of Ireland and as such the setting sun is always well positioned. The lighthouse was erected in 1818, it stands proudly on a rocky promontory overlooking Lough Swilly and Dunaff Head.

How do you make the water look like a Harry Potter potion? By the magic of very good photography. Wonderful picture.

This is an amazing photo! The long exposure worked great for you here allowing for wonderful exposure and a fine blurring effect on the water. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness.

Surfing through small size photos on TE gallery, it isn't difficult to stop on this shot, standing out from the rest.
The subdued pastel colours are very attractive and the warm glow coming out of the lighthouse steal the show.
I'm not convinced if the pile of rocks in the foreground is necessary or desirable in your composition, as it gets much attention and take away the idealistic set-up; if you would have frame your scene above it, we would have had the impression that it was a little fjord.

A very calming scene, with the soft light! The lights eminating from the lighthouse really adds to the photo and has a lovely hue. A lovely composition. Fine work, regards,

Lighthouses always make for photogenic subjects somehow, and this one is no exception. I like that it is lit up producing the same kind of hues on the building as the sunset colours. It is such a picturesque setting on these craggy rocks and the water below has a lovely soft feeling about it. A beautiful scene.

Hi Stephen, Looks like TE fixed the tech problem with your gallery. Composition in this one works well, with the light house well placed. The eye catching lights help too and the pebbles in the FG and rocky inlet provide good depth. Light management all good too. cheers, steve

Beautiful soft evening colours in the sky and sea well contrasting with the darker shadow colours of the foreground, a beautiful landscape in which the lighthouse shines out.
