Sunrise, Nubble Light

Just got back from a weeks vacation along the Souther Maine coast. Managed to slip on over to Nubble Light for a sunrise and sunset session. Nature cooperated more this year than in years past. Here are a couple of the sunrise shots I've gone through and processed. More to come!

1. Almost Sunrise, Nubble Light



Canon 7D, Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L @ 70mm, ISO 100, f/11, 5 Seconds, Mirror Lock Up, B&W 3 Stop ND Filter


2. Sunrise, Nubble Light



Canon 7D, Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L @ 24mm, ISO 100, f/16, 1/4 Second, Mirror Lock Up, B&W 3 Stop ND Filter

Re: Sunrise, Nubble Light

Hi John, Welcome back. You had me going there because I didn't know what a "Nubble Light" was.

I like the color in the first image. I have mixed emotions as to whether or not there should be more detail in the forground or not.. The second image I don't think you could get much more detail in the forground. At any rate good job on both as they are both very nice images.

Re: Sunrise, Nubble Light

John,
I recall Mike, aka Bozzz, has shown us this place before. Just whereabouts is this? It is photogenic. On #1 I'd opt to go one of 2 ways, ie driving the contrast to make the shadows pure silhouette OR select, copy to a new layer and blend it lighter for more detail....I tried it and a case could be made for both. GREAT sky. Unless opting to evidence more detail in the foreground, I'd crop some (1/2 or more) of the bottom off as its "weight" unbalances the scene, ie bottom heavy.

#2 I like the diffracted sunlight peering around the left edge. I'd crop in much tighter to emphasize that moreso, eliminating the near shore rocks, sky above the clouds, and the right end of the island.

Russ, Nubble Light is located in York, Maine. The lighthouse itself is actually on an island maybe 100 yards off shore. In order to get to the lighthouse the people actually had to get in a little cable cart and pull themselves over the water to the island. There's a park between the 2 York area beaches and if I recall correctly Nubble Light is the most photographed lighthouse in the country.

Thanks for your suggestions. I have quite a few shots that I need to experiment with. The first shot really appeared silhouetted on my monitor but when I posted to Flickr some detail did come out.

Re: Sunrise, Nubble Light

John, I like both shots, each giving its own perspective on the lighthouse, however I seem to be drawn to the first one because of the sky in the background. I love the sun peeking over the island in the second shot, however the electricity poles detract from the scene for me.

Re: Sunrise, Nubble Light

Fantastic skies on the first one, John. I gotta agree that the foreground could use some lightening. As it is, the level of detail just teases. If you can feather out more detail, I'd keep it all. If not, I'd push it to complete shadow, and crop to just below the red shed in the foreground.
