We want a lighthouse in the photo - sort of!

This challenge closed over 4 years ago.

The Challenge

We want a lighthouse in the photo, but we don’t want any close-ups – we want it as just in the background, as per the example photo.

We’ve done the lighthouse challenge before and every photo was mainly just of the lighthouse, so this time around, we don’t want the lighthouse to fill the frame – we just want it in the background, as if its an afterthought.

Be creative and show us your composition skills, otherwise your photo won’t be accepted into the challenge.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Additional Information

Please make sure the photo you want to add to the challenge has been accepted into this group. That’s the first thing we check and we remove the photo immediately from the challenge, if it’s not in the group or in the moderation queue.
