Cape May Lighthouse: Autumn

Cape May Lighthouse: Autumn

Cape May Light on moody Autumn afternoon. A touch of color in the trees with the lacy phragmities reeds (of questionable¬†parentage…native or invasive??) form a intricate ¬†cup to support the solid shaft of the light standing tall against the cloudy sky…classic stuff!

Sony DSC H50 at about 135mm equivalent. F5.6 @ 1/500 @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Recovery in Lightroom for the sky and clouds. A touch of Fill Light for the foreground. Blackpoint to the right for intensity. Added Vibrance and Clarity and the Sharpen Landscapes preset.

From Cape May 10/09.
