Pigeon Point Lighthouse

“This is my fourth visit to CA and I was driving on highway 1 from Santa Cruz to Half moon bay and saw this beautiful 115 foot pigeon point lighthouse , I stopped my car and decide to take few shots and i was lucky clouds just started moving, tried my B+W 10 stop filter on 24-105 lens and got this beautiful shot.

Also there is a pretty awesome Hostel located on the grounds of lighthouse, it is an awesome experience and you can’t miss this place between Bigsur and SFO on highway 1.”- Venkat Kancharla

    The subject and composition are well chosen but the image is so over saturated that what could have been a very nice image has been ruined. My recommendation – go back and tone it down to something a little more believable.
