A cold December at dusk just after Christmas, it was very cold and overcast but the clouds just broke a little to show the colours of the setting sun (about 3pm at that time of the year!) Flamborough Head is on the east coast of Yorkshire, England.

I really like this one. I like your use of light and dark lighting.

This is interesting and a bit scary. Lovely ambience and colors. Maybe a bit open at the right side? Well done.

Nicely done, the soft colors and the composition is perfect 10 for making pictures.

Great shot!

Hi Mike,

Again a really nice shot!. It does impress me that yoy took it with the C5060, proving that the camera doesn't matter, but the photographer.
Sincere congrats.

I really like the way this image is exposed to create almost a silhouette of the lighthouse and a very atmospheric and moody feel.

I love the sillioutte and colors. Very atmospheric. It might just be me, but there appears to be some perspective distortion causing the lighthouse to bow-in a bit (then again, it could be my mind playing tricks). Very nice overall.
