There’s always a lot of scope for images with the ‘starts with’ challenges. If only had I better images of lighthouses in the bag. Nevermind, this is what I uploaded:
On the left is an image of a lighthouse in the Kornati National Park, Croatia. I was on a boat at the time and couldn’t get any closer to the rocks – it was very breezy. On the right is the image I took of the Point Cabrillo lighthouse in Mendocino Co, Califorina. I opted to put the image into mono as the light was so poor due to a really overcast damp day. Terrible weather on both trips then but great days!
BTW I know the perspective on the Californian lighthouse is a little iffy. The camera I was using had a very limited zoom so had to tilt the lens up to get the framing I after. I actually think it adds a little bit of interest – it wasn’t supposed to be an architectural image after all.
The next two images for this challenge are of animals:
On the left is one of hundreds of Llama shots I took on a trip to Peru & Bolivia. I think this was my favourite llama as we had a very similiar hair-do. Mine’s a little whiter these days however. On the right is an image of a leopard prowling about – didn’t seem to be in a particularly good mood so didn’t hang about too long.
There are a few days left before the challenge ends – currently I’m floating about at the Skilled level – which I’m very happy with. I’m going to try not to be tempted to swap as I’m simply pulling old images which I’m not overly happy with (just meeting the challenge criteria). Need to get out at the weekend and start snapping again!

Update: The challenge ended and I achieved a Premier ranking which is great. I’m actually hoping to push towards the Veteran status and need more Elite rankings but given that these photos are oldies, I’m still very happy with the result.
