Challenge: Centered Composition III (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Location: Grótta, Reykavík, Iceland
Date: Apr 8, 2008
Aperture: f/22
ISO: 50
Shutter: 2.5 sec
Galleries: Landscape, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Apr 8, 2008

Shot during sunset by Grótta lighthouse. I had shot a lot of super-wide shots before this one but felt the lighthouse was too small in the frame so I swithed lenses to get closer. I planted the tripod in a rater low position close the sea.

Most of the processing is a result of tweaking in Lightroom. The blue pinkish color is a result of tweaking the white-balance in Lightroom and further in Photoshop. In Photosop I used a dash of shadow-highlight mostly to increase mid-tone contrast.

Hehe, yospiff it's not wide-angle. I had been shooting there with my 18mm lens but the lighthouse was too small. This image is actually shot between 50 and 70mm of my 24-70L and thus a normal length shot.

Best, Hrannar

Very pleasing and serene image. Obviously not possible for this challenge but would suggest a print of this witht the various poles cloned out would be even better.
