Ocracoke Light
 
The Ocracoke Lighthouse, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. This is one of my favorite places anywhere and I have a perpetual crush on this image of it. I hope you enjoy it too.

Hi Patrick,

seems very peaceful and relaxed there and you've caught that well, I like the shot, how the lighthouse fits into the overall picture; my only suggestion, I would perhaps have increased the contrast a little and made a little more of the light coming from the lighthouse and the sunset (I assume it's sunset) on the left HS.

The framing of this image is really superb with the fence coming out to meet the lighthouse at dusk/dawn.  I can see why you are drawn to this and I think this is a great image.   I enjoy this forum to discuss different ideas and some of what Andrew says I agree with (contrast), but I would actually keep the lights in the lighthouse as is and maybe bring out the fence, lighthouse exterior and tree a little more.   Can't beat the composition though....fantastic.

Guys, I kid you not - before posting this image, I made sure that the contrast was beyond the point where the scene was even credible. I boosted saturation too until the image was well and truly garish! So to hear you both report that I need to increase those effects...well I almost want to fly to your locations and look at it on your screens so that I can assure myself I am not crazy! I don't know what to do!! On my monitor this looks quite like what I saw when I shot the scene and not in any way flat or dull.

I truly am sorry that's not your experience. My regret is that such a long-sought rendition of this exceptional place is not appealing to you because of an unaccountable loss in translation! But thank you for providing your insight and opinions which will always be most welcome.

 My compliments on a super image.  Being a bit of a lighthouse nut myself, I'm always drawn to a good photo of a lighthouse and this is no exception.  I like the composition, the lines of the fence drawing my eye to the lighthouse, the lovely twilight - great stuff.  If I were being really, really picky, I think I would have liked to see just a touch of detail in the trees.  But even without that, it's a good image.

 Patrick, This is a wonderful shot and great example of a leading line. Love it. I agree with the others to make it pop a bit more. Sorry you're having difficulty getting the shot right on TPN. Someone once said for the TPN postings to saturate at 15 and do a 'save for web'. It's worked for me.
