I took this one on a recent trip to Oregon. Had my wife and kids with me, and those of you who have kids know how that impacts your photo ops.

It is a very beautiful shot. I like the visual design and the lighting that makes the lighthouse pop in the beautiful light.
I noticed the simplicity of the gear used. Another good example that a good photographer can do outstanding work with the minimum even if he has his family with him.

Not meaning to hijack your post--but, I was there on a foggy windy day in mid June.

I've never seen it bright and sunny in 3 trips! Love the saturation you've managed!

Duane, boy do I know what it is like taking photos with kids around! That brought a smile to my face because quite often I'm with my kids and wife, and well, the experience involves much more than just setting up, looking deeply, working the scene, composing, and taking the shot, etc. Great shot of Heceta Head. I'll be headed down that way later in September or October.

Best,

Nick: I like your picture but it needs a little help. Please, go back to it and in Photoshop duplicate the background and in the layer's mode go to OVERLAY. Just by doing this you should notice a significant improvement in your photograph.
Right now it looks dull due to the lack of contrast. I thought that it had a slight magenta cast, at least in my calibrated monitor, so I made the adjustment adding some green to taste.

Thanks VERY much everyone for the good words! I'm quite happy with how this came out, considering how much effort went into it. ;)

That is the Heceta Head Lighthouse, just north of Florence. Very Nice shot.
Spectre, Thanks for the reminder!

Nacho, Glad to hear I made you smile! Generally, I have about 15 seconds to do all that in...I'm getting pretty good at the quick-draw! :biggrin:
At the Montery Aquarium a couple weeks ago, I had my monopod trying to get some shots of the jellies...the 2 yr old thought it was a fun pole to spin around.

It is a very beautiful shot. I like the visual design and the lighting that makes the lighthouse pop in the beautiful light.

camerapapi, Thanks VERY MUCH for the glowing comments! The gear/setup was even less than it appears...this was handheld and I had about 5 minutes at the side of the road to do it in...lucky for me my boys had a call to nature so I had to pull over, plus my wife brought some snacks. ;) No way I was going to get a sunset out of it, that would have been another 20 minutes or so and we were dangerously low on snacks.

Palouse, Not at all, the more the merrier!

Beautiful photo. Would make an excellent wall hanging, say about 24x36!
Sanford504, That's a good idea, thanks!
