Margret Todd at Anchor

This is a tourist boat: it makes daily excursions under full sail on Frenchman’s Bay and the surrounding waters for the delight of paying passengers, and does a very popular sunset dinner cruse as well. Always picturesque, this early evening shot sets it against the still waters of Bar Harbor and the backdrop of the Porcupine Islands. The ornamental railing at the foreground adds dimension to the composition. I cropped slightly from the bottom to eliminate the path in front of the railing.

It will repay a larger view.

Canon SX20IS at about 80mm equivalent for framing. F4.0 @ 1/500th @ ISO 80. Landscape program.

Recovery for the sky in Lightroom. A bit of Fill Light, Blackpoint just barely right. Added Clarity and more than usual Vibrance to try for a little blue in the water. Sharpen narrow edges preset.

From Acadia 2010.

And a second view. This time with more sky.

    I like thes, but prefer the second as I find the rail in the top shot distracting. Worth a different crop?

    I enjoy them both. The top pix makes me look at and enjoy the activity of the whole harbor. The bottom one makes me focus on the serenity of the sail boats.
