Great concept if you could reduce some of the blown highlights in the foreground.

Thanks for your comments Stan. I ran some highlight recovery on the building and lantern housing but this was the best I could do. I should have shot a shorter exposure right after and blended it in.

I like the concept here, it turned out okay, but the blown highlights do take away from both. Exposing for the highlights is a staple for getting good exposures. I always suggest to shoot exposing for the highlights first and then taking 1 or 2 more shots where you expose for the shadows if needed.

Despite i agree with Jim here, the second one does appeal to me, something in the highlight and the composition works (probably too much Alien movies )

The first does nothing for me, but thats just MHO.

Excited to see my lunar eclipse lighthouse shot published in the September issue of Sky & Telescope magazine.

Hi Jim,

Sure does. In this age of digital where everything is online, there is just something great about seeing your work in print. Never gets old.
