Originally taken in RAW. I increased the color temp and tint to give it a sepia tone. With the sunshine falling down between the clouds, it worked better than just the regular blue sky.

Very nice, especially for a rapid shutter speed too. (1/1600) The people and boats give it a nice sense of scale as well.

first off, amazing picture! Also, i am doing a research project on the Interfacelift community and i make a point to check Interfacelift at least once if not twice a day, i was wondering how often everyone else checks this website?

At least once, sometimes twice. For instance, I check often enough that I know this is a zoomed-out version of one other YMS's other backgrounds (which I currently have in my rotation), otherwise I'd download this bad boy right now!

I saw the thumbnail for this in the widget and thought... "I've seen this before" then I read the description and thought... "I swear I've seen this before" Then I looked down and saw that I had, indeed, seen this before. I like this version better. As with the first one, I really like the color. I think the composition of this is stronger though. You're not left wondering what the lighthouse is illuminating like the first one.

@rhyno: I have the IFL dashboard widget, and use my dashboard at home and work extensively throughout the day, so if you count that, I check IFL 3-4 dozen times a day. If you only count how often I visit the site, that depends totally on how often it is updated. Usually once, sometimes twice a day.

Dude, if it's gonna look this freakin' awesome, I don't care that it's the same material as before. Plus, any landscape is going to have many different studies to offer. Nicely done.

Oh, and let's just say "often" for my answer. I keep an RSS feed bookmark in Safari and check the comments every so often too.

Where was taken that photo ? Thanks.

Personally prefer the other version but still love it and have put it on the rotation.

Why do lighthouses photograph so well? In my collection I must have at least 20 photos of lighthouses and a lot of them would rate as some of my favourite photos. Strange huh?

Great picture. Reminds me of where I grew up!

@Rhyno: I probably check this site about twice a day.

Isn't this picture nearly identical to one of your previous submissions? (http://interfacelift.com/wallpaper_beta/details/1785/sunshine.html)

The only major difference is that it's shifted slightly to the left. They even have the exact same name.

Great picture, by the way.

@trout - I totally agree. Both photos are awesome. I think this one stands out a little more though. I remember thinking that I wanted to see what was off to the left of the lighthouse when I saw the first one. Both made it to my downloads folder, and rate as some of my favorites. I especially love the visible sun rays (or God-fingers, as one of my old classmates called them). Perfect day for a shoot there.

Rhyno- I use the InterfaceLift widget for Mac, and during the week while @ work, i hit the hotkey every 30 minutes...to see whatever the widgets are broadcasting though. If there is a new image in InterfaceLift, I will view that page - so 2x a day probably

Like this version a lot. How do you get the light rays effect? I've seen a lot of pictures here with them. Is it a slow shutter speed? @rhyno: I come here once-a-day, but to do a total accurate survey you would have to ask other people who don't always leave comments...

A lot of people are saying they like this version better but don't realize why they like it better. The reason, again, is composition. There is motion in that the eye travels in a circle from the cloud then down the light beams to the lighthouse then to the left-hand bank then back to the cloud then to the lighthouse, etc. But there is also stability provided by the dark stable masses of the pier and the left-hand bank which gives balance between the left and right hand sides of the picture.
