Standing watch above the rising surf and spectacular rock formations is Pemaquid. Finding some water in the rocks to capture its reflection is no problem. Waiting until the wind dies down and no people around is the true test. That and locating the point when your GPS dies because of no link.

Stunning image with strong focal point that is repeated in the reflection. Colours and value are well balanced, the texture in the rock formation provides the leading lines to bring the viewer in and hold his attention. Great image! Can't wait to see more of your work!

Behind The Lens

Location
Pemaquid Point Light
Time
7:30 pm
Lighting
The sun had gone down but you can capture this same reflection in daylight as well. I was there both times but I prefer this capture because the light in the lighthouse is on.
Equipment
Canon EOS 5D Mark III EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM Tripod
Inspiration
I was going up the coast of Maine stopping at several lighthouses along the way ending up in Acadia National Park. It was such an awesome trip I'm thinking about doing it again next year.
Editing
I converted my RAW file in CS6 and darken the sky just a touch. I used Niks Viveza to brighten up the house and bring out the texture in the rocks.
In my camera bag
Canon EOS 5D Mark III and L lenses
Feedback
Patience, there are people walking around the lighthouse that you have to wait for them to get out of your shot.
