    What is so clever about this image, in my opinion, is the wonderful arrangeemnt of the people.

    Take the people out, or arrange them into a group in which they are closer to each other, and the image reamins nice, but not nearly so good. Just the little bit of height created by the two figures on the right standing, makes such a difference. Excellent work.

    This is edging quite close to a BW shot of Greece!

    Nice arrangement. I love these complete silhouette shots. I do them myself, and I know how tricky it is to get the structure right as it depends very much on shape and structure. You seem to have got it right here.

    Hopefully I'll get to that too one day.

    Hi again Giannis,

    Another nice one, but if mine, I would definitely 'straighten' the leaning lighthouse (without affecting the people ideally).

    Good work,

    I love the shot, but agree with Dave...if you can straighten the lighthouse it is even better. It was the first thing I noticed about the photo.
    But...great shot!

    Peter, Dave, thanks for commenting.

    I changed the perspective through the vertical perspective slider in PSE. It is just a little softer now.
