Pemaquid Point – Maine
Camera: Canon 5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF14mm f/2.8L II USM
Settings: 14mm Focal Length, 1/20 sec @ f/22 and ISO 100
Processing: As I almost always do, I took six bracketed images for this scene. In the end, this scene was captured quite well in the base exposure. I was able to get some detail in the sky and I also had lots of great color and detail in the rocks, so I scrapped the other exposures. Lightroom handled the highlight recovery and some contrast. Then, on to Color EFX Pro for some color correction and added contrast. Noise was minimal, so I did not have to use anything more than a slight adjustment in Lightroom. The one added element here is the fogginess on the left side. I thought there was too much contrast across the board and I really wanted all the contrast to be focused on the rocks. I used Color EFX Pro’s graduated Fog Filter, tweaked to just the areas I wanted to tone down. I think it helps with the overall mood of the image as well.
