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!
