A couple of images of the lighthouse that stands on the Harbour wall in St Ives, Cornwall. Both are taken with my Nikon FM with 28mm lens on Agfa Vista Plus 200 film. Personally I prefer the first one, the whole image just jumps out as a classic rule of thirds image but the cloud pattern in the right hand side of the shot I think helps make it more than just empty space their to compliment the main focus of the photograph itself. This first shot is taken at f16 1/500th sec.

This is at f22 1/250th second.Lighthouse Agfa Vista Plus f22 250th (more…)
