Yet another image from the trip to Maine. I used photomatrix HDR on this image. If you have not seen what this can do you really should check it out. This image was a waste till I used this program.
As for the light no special effect just caught it at the right time, and with the right f/stop.

This made me really smile!!! Great memories as I was standing in the pouring rain with you when you took this. It looks beautiful. Love the composition and the capture of the light and the path leading up to it. Also like that you caught the bench on the path. Thanks for sharing the link for HDR with me. Still have to try it.

BEAUTIFUL capture, Darren!! I especially love those rocks. Hard to believe this was "a WASTE", exactly... !! Nope. Because "a waste" isn't fixable: that is my opinion, and I'm sticking to it!! lol. I am really curious now about HDR so I guess I'll have to go and check it out. Well done! (Whatever HDR really does! It was still a good photo though, since all the elements were obviously there at the beginning!)

Happy you didn't trash this shot. We are beginning to see the result of Photomatrix HDR more. Your treatment of this shot shows why.

Beautiful image, Darren!!! Thanks for the info on HDR. I've tried it in PS CS2 and don't know whether I was doing something wrong or the software but mine looked horrible. Well done!

Oh those effects you used has really brought out everything in the scene, which is beautifully composed! But the rocks stand out and have so much texture. Yep, gotta know what this HDR is also!

who says you need a blue sky to make a shot? This is just perfect. From the framing to the lighting to even the minor burst on the lighthouse light.
