A good POV with the light house off centre giving a great view of Port Jackson. It was magical sailing into Sydney through there. TFS.

Beautiful and attractive picture with very pleasant light and colors, giving me a very good sense of warmth and coziness!
Sharpness, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition are also photo qualities that helped to create an interesting and inviting image of that place!
TFS - congrats,

Gee you got around in the short time you were in Sydney! Not many people know about this lighthouse. I think I have a few shots of it in my Gallery, but they were taken at night. So it's nice to see how good it looks in the day. Superb composition, with the lighthouse the extreme left of the frame. Excellent rich colours and impressive sharpness. In order to reach the lighthouse, you must have walked past the beach with all the old nude guys? A sight of Sydney you could have done without seeing, I am sure. Shudder...

Very short lighthouse but it looks as is located on the cliff high above the water.
Nicely composed photo with lighthouse on the left side and panorama of the Sydney in the BG.

I like lighthouse as photo subject.
This one is very interesting with its small heigh and its red-white stripes.
Good composition with the opening on the bay, placing the lighthouse inside its environment.
