    I said it was a toss up for first place! Beautiful, and shows your considerable skill and fine eye. Congrats for topping the field (no pun intended)!

    This could easily be my top pick but I had to pick one so it is no. 2. Wonderful composition, framing and use of light.

    Beautiful colors and well exposed, with just enough detail in the shadow areas. In my TT.

    Lovely tones and the simplicity of the composition works well.

    Gorgeous colour! I like the L shape of the composition. The blowing grasses are a nice detail. High in my favourites.

    A nearly perfect shot. A beautiful sky, great subject and the wind-blown foreground. It all works. TT.

    Outstanding image - IMHO it evokes an Andrew Wyeth-like scene. The colors and the tall grass make this image stand out. High in my TT.

    What a pretty sunset, and I love how the weeds are blowing in the wind, in my faves!

    Great color and composition - like the contrast between the bending, wind-blown grasses and the rectilinear solidity of the lighthouse.

    Lovely pastel sunset shot, with Lighthouse. When I first looked, I could have sworn this was the Pigeon Point Lighthouse, on the central California coast, south of Half Moon Bay. They look so alike, they must both have been built or designed by the same person(s).

    Well done...the tall grass breaking the horizon works well here as dose the golden sky... I have tried light houses but none came out as nice as this one. my #2
