Nobska Point lighthouse – cape cod

Cape_Cod_Lighthouse-1

I have wanted a shot of the Nobska Point Lighthouse from the bay side for some time but never really had good light at the right time of the day. This shot was taken a little after 12PM on a day with good light and low humidity with my Canon 5D Mk3 and EF70-200 using a 2x converter @ 400mm effective. I shot three images at roughly -2, 0 and +2 exposure because while the light was good there still was quite a range of shadows and highlights that I wanted to capture. It was a bit of a challenge shooting this from a moving boat and then getting the images aligned without ghosting. I processed in HDR using HDR Efex Pro 2 and pushed structure and saturation a bit more than normal. Finally, I took out some visitors that were sitting on the hill in front of the lighthouse using Photoshop. The sailboat in the foreground was an unexpected bonus. All in all a fun shot.
