Lighthouse over Rocks

Wood Island Light, at the mouth of the Saco River, off East Point in Biddeford Pool, ME. The flip out LCD on the Canon SX20IS got me down low, sitting on one of these rocks. I experimented with Program Shift for greater depth of field, but really did not need it in this situation. The metered f4 at this 60mm equivalent gave sufficient depth for the scene. In lower light, program shift would have been essential, since the SX20, like all P&Ss, favors  wider apertures and faster shutter speeds in Program mode.

As above, Canon SX20IS at 60mm equivalent. F4 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programmed Auto.

Recovery for the sky and Lighthouse highlights. A touch of Fill Light. Blackpoint to the right slightly. Added Clarity and just a tiny amount of Vibrance. Sharpen landscapes preset.

From Around Home 2010.

For comparison, here is wider shot with more rocks.
