I think...

This is cropped, and the dark areas in front have been posterized to black. I removed lights from them so it is a lovely dark mass.
The sky is boosted to crazy levels.

Two Versions

Two versions of the same image, with different degrees of manipulation.

I actually think this would be better tighter cropped, I think I will give that a try.

Fisgard Lighthouse. I shot this last Sunday. We had gone to visit Sorcha half-way through her six-week course and she got tagged for a garden party at the Rear-Admiral's house, so we picked her up at 9:00 and then had to return her at 11:30. We went back to Fort Rodd Hill until she was done, and I think I shot this about 3:30 PM.
The Rear-Admiral's house is directly across the harbour from this lighthouse, and we could hear the music from the party.
I am thinking of entering this one into a competition under 'Maritime Theme'. I think lighthouses qualify as maritime.
