Landscape Photo Competition 2012 : Entry Number 151

Judges Comment

This is a lovely, moody photograph. I can feel the fresh sea air in it. The composition is well balanced, the four distinct parts nicely clicking together. I love how the wave is just braeking over the rock.

This photo would have been so much more powerful with a better placed depth of field, focus is so important.

It is a great effort and the approach is very original.

My name is James A. Mahathey and this is one of the first shot I took with, at the time, my new NIKON D700. I was working in Minnesota and took a day trip to Split Rock, MN to shoot the lighthouse. It was a cold fall day but I was lucky to get this shot.
