Nikon D7100 with AF- S 18- 105mm f/ 3.5- 5.6 lens. Exposure: Six seconds at f/ 11 ( ISO 100).
What we think: With a picturesque lighthouse, the choppy Irish Sea meeting the Menai Strait, Puffin Island in the background and good light possible at both sunrise and sunset, it's clear to see why Anglesey's Penmon Point is popular with photographers. Mark's found a good balance between foreground, lighthouse and island, as well as rendering nice texture and motion in the water. Although there's no colourful sky, the light is nice and soft too. It looks like the tide is in, which doesn't give you much room to play with at this location, but Mark's put all the elements in the right places, whilst showing good technical skill. We suspect his toes might have gotten a little damp in the process!
