Great photo from a unique angle. Most photos you see of this lighthouse are from the same angle. Wish I was in Maine right now...

Well, I have shot this lighthouse, but my result was not as good. Way to go. It's a superb shot.

Beautiful place and composition, and not too much on the HDR. I'd tone down the amount/saturation on the rocks, and a sans serif font for your name/copyright info.

Very pleasant photo with relaxing colors. The Angles of the foreground rock and the horizontal lines in the sky make this a trophy in my eyes.

Absolutely beautiful! I have been there and have to say that you did a wonderful job conveying the atmosphere & the color in the rocks. Non of my photos of Bass Harbor look like this, lol.

Did you have this view in mind when you went there or did you find it as you walked around looking for the 'right shot'. Just wondering, but it doesn't matter either way because you were at the 'right spot'!! Very impressive.

Funny you should ask. One thing I've noticed about Acadia is that photographers with nice cameras and tripods are the norm rather than the exception here. If you go someplace for sunrise or sunset, expect to see several, if not dozens of other photographers looking for the same great shot. When I was at Bass Harbor, there were about 10 other photographers who all got there about 1-2 hours before sunset to prepare for the shot. In a situation like that, you either get there early, or you're stuck with what's left over. Luckily, I got there early and was able to choose this spot. That being said, when the time came for the big shot, I had to ask more than one meandering couple to please move because I've been waiting all evening for this one moment . . . not really my favorite way to snap a picture. But, I guess the results seem worth it in this instance.

Ryan
