    Wow, that's a very unusual-looking lighthouse. Where is it?

    it's in one pier in one of the islands in my country (philippines)

    here's another version of guardhouse that also serves as a light house...

    terrible picture, i know...but the only one i have on the subject matter. it's just off the end of Navy Pier in Chicago, IL. this was from a series of first/learning shots with this camera when i bought it 3 years ago. the digital zoom really distorted the image as much noise can be seen.

    shot in Normal Program Mode, handheld, 1/80th sec., f/2.8, ISO- 200, @46.8mm

    Noise notwithstanding, I think it's a nicely composed shot. And the subject matter is great!

    I would be willing to bet that printed at 8 x 10 it would look just fine.

    Many thanks for this shot.

    thanks for the kind words...and perhaps i'm my own worst critic...however, i think quite a bit of manipulation would have to be made in order for it to look good as an 8x10.

    but i'm glad you like it.

    I think it's a good photo of the lighthouse, if you were taking a photo for a newspaper. And I agree that it would probably print fine at any normal print size. But, and this is my opinion, I don't like compositions where the center of interest is in the center of the photo, with nothing else around to grab the eye. This reflects my learning of the "Golden Mean" principle, which says that your subject should be at a point 1/3 in from one of the sides of the photo, both vertically and horizontally. If you ever watch a movie, you may notice that they apply this principle liberally with subjects; unless you're looking at a real closeup of someone's eyeball, you'll generally see subjects tending to the "Golden Mean." I think your lighthouse photo would really be cool if the light itself was more obscured by fog, and the light was beaming out through the mist...
    Let a be your umbrella!
