Also from this shoot:

One last shot of the Port Melbourne Front Lighthouse. I particularly liked the ‘minimalist’ effect of the composition here: no clutter from ships or piers, while the water below and the cloud above have both been smoothed out by the long exposure, preventing either of them from drawing attention away from the lighthouse.

    Love the perspective here. So many lighthouses center at the bottom, leaving lots of sky. This is a refreshing concentration on the water. The photo is beautiful and colors and focus are perfect. Well done.

  • Thanks so much, Joe – I really enjoyed reading your in depth appreciation of my work!
