    Great shots of lighthouses! AND the compositions are very instructive for us beginners. After 4 years of DSLR (passionate amateur) I now realise how awful my compositions are, and the labour that goes behind a good composition.
    Thanks and warm regards to all of you lighthouse photographers, from out here in Mauritius, and of course to PCorrect for posting them.
