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...
    Golden mean = rule of third right? Just wanna make sure

    Here's a closer look at the Chicago Navy Pier light house. Most probably the only light house pic I'll be posting. Oh well.
