Lighthouse on Anglesey, Wales. Which one (if any) would you frame and hang on a wall? I can't decide!
K3-3, 16-50 PLM, except the second one - 55-300 PLM. I'm not sure about the colour tints, though they look a bit better on my larger monitor!

The portrait for me. Might have got away with the B&W, but the post is to dominant.

When I was there a few weeks ago you could hang in a raincoat, the wind was that strong

Agree, the portrait is the best balanced, you were obviously getting into the zone so to speak and it shows.
One could edit it many times over and it will still look great to the eye.

Yes definitely the portrait version. It has everything you want, foreground interest, walls draw your eye to the lighthouse and then you see the beautiful colours in the sky. A large print hanging of this view is something you could look at all day.

K1000, Espio 140, ist, istD, K70, K3iii and numerous lenses, just don't tell my wife.

Gotta K-3iii now, had a K-S2, K50 and so suffering from a relapse and so buying digital camera kit.
Previous addiction has resulted in using Zeniths, Yashicamat, Chinons, Minoltas, Samsungs, Fujis, Cosina, Kodak, Lumix, Canon, Nikon and Pentax etc etc - have tried most makes in the past 50 years. Love cameras - love taking photos even more

Another vote for the portrait version. But only if portrait shape will look right in the space on the wall where you want to hang it .

The portrait one for me also, the sea and sky complement each other best in that one for my taste.

Thanks for your comments, definitely a unanimous decision!

These are all rather special. The way you have captured the light is superb.

Got to agree with Peter - the light does look a bit special

And I'd probably agree with the majority on the Portrait image being the stand out shot

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.
