Maine Chic

Maine Chic

A restaurant on the pier at Cape Porpoise Harbor. What can I say? The riot of color and shape, the contrast of the rose plant and the railing full of lobster floats, the red boat…had to be done.

It was a somewhat tricky exposure and required some post processing for good tonal balance, but other than that…I just zoomed in for framing and shot.

DSC H50 at about 66mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/320 @ ISO 100. Programed auto, -.3EV exposure compensation.

Cropped slightly in Lightroom, from the right to eliminate some highly reflective and distracting windows. Heavy Recovery for the rose blossoms, Fill Light to open the shadows. Slight contrast increase, added Clarity and Vibrance, and Landscape sharpen preset. There was slight chromatic aberration (color fringing)  showing on the left and right, so I used the CA filter in Lightroom to remove it.
