This is beautiful, Darren. I love the composition. #512458

Marcie A. Fowler 8/29/2006 6:48:09 AM

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. #3238907

Beautiful view of the lighthouse Darren...and thanks for sharing your info! #3239535

Nadya Johnson 8/29/2006 9:34:06 AM

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!) #3239561

David Phalen 8/29/2006 10:09:23 AM

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.
