I Was hoping to shoot the sunset at the Bodie Island Lighthouse. Instead I spent the evening sitting in my car and running out in between rain showers to snap a few photo’s before the rain started again. It was a constant struggle to keep water off the lens between shots. I think I managed to get a decent result though.
I need a photographers eye. I did some masking in lightroom but the sky selection kept including the lighthouse so I had to manually subtract it with the brush. Does it look weird around the lighthouse? I think I've stared at this so long I can't tell anymore.
Yeah there's a gradient around the lighthouse. The brush edge was too soft.
I think I fixed it? I also tweaked it a bit.
better than before!
