Sanibel Light

Sanibel Light

This is a second view of the Sanibel Lighthouse against the New Year’s Day sunrise. For this I zoomed in enough to isolate the light, but keep significant sky. The sky behind the light, being well away from the sun, was not as spectacular, but still colorful. Exposure for the sky, metered in Programed Auto Wilde Matrix setting normally, since the sky dominated the image anyway, and I was willing to let the lighthouse go black. A pretty straightforward image.

Sony DSC H50 at about 400mm equivalent. F4.5 @ 1/200 @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

Recovery in Lightroom for the sky, added Clarity and Vibrance (Vibrance picked up some orange in the sky), and used the Sharpen Landscapes preset. Cropped some water out. Originally I put the horizon at the 1/3 line…moved the horizon lower and let the light itself have the power point.

The image is from the Sanibel and Everglades Gallery.
