  Mini#32 Monochrome, 2016
Entry 5 of 42
   
 
Pigeon Point       ©2016 aoc46
Panasonic DMC-LX100       5th place, 168 points
1/59s, f11, ISO 200, 75mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Conversion from RAW to B&W. Slight global and local adjustments to tone and contrast, plus the usual cropping etc.       Extra Info: An often-photographed scene, but I thought the cloud made this one a little more special.

    Thank you, everyone, for the comments and compliments!
AnthonyC: I sort of agree about the reeds (pampas grass stalks), but I rationalized that their verticality reflects that of the rock and lighthouse.
Elliot: This one, too, is obsolete and abandoned as a lighthouse, though there is a small park and museum. But there's little money for repair and maintenance, so it's in serious danger of falling down in the next earthquake.

    Beautiful, expansive scene. All elements contribute to the effectiveness of the image. I love the way the eye is led around from the foreground through to the lighthouse and on to the rocks, then round again, because this photo demands to be savoured. The sky is lovely without being too competitive with the subject. Top shot for me.

    nice one. most of these have become somewhat obsolete with modern modes of navigation. i still love the poetic nature of the lighthouse on a shoreline. this is a keeper.

    Classic scene, I can understand why it would be a popular shot. However this is your shot and I think you did a great job. Kudos.

    Lovely scene, the sky is beautifully soft. Foreground in a landscape is normally a good thing, however I do find reeds in the foreground a bit distracting, but it won't affect my voting much.

    sometimes a much photographed spot gets the brain moving and you have done well here . more contrast making the lighthouse stand out and give edges to the clouds

    Nice view. The rock in the left side makes good balance to the picture.
In my favorites.

LIKE THE COMPOSITION... NOT SURE WHY IT DID NOT SPEAK TO ME LOUDER.

    This is what I love about BW. My eyes go straight to the lighthouse, not distracted by all the surrounding scenery. I'm sure the scenery is beautiful in color too, but here the lighthouse is clearly the main subject. My #1.
