Bush’s Through Reeds

Lovely warm evening sun, storm off the coast, the Bush estate in Kennbunkport (Cape Arundel), and a few reeds in the foreground. Moderate telephoto to frame, flip out LCD to get the low angle.

Canon SX20IS at 85mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/320th @ ISO 80. Landscape program.

Recovery for the sky in Lightroom 3, Fill Light for the reeds, Blackpoint right for intensity (gently in Lr3 as the tool is works much faster), added Clarity and a touch of Vibrance. Sharpen narrow edges preset. Cropped slightly top and bottom for composition.
