Here’s a landscape without the land…I suppose that would make it a seascape. In any case, this was a sunset in open ocean somewhere in the vicinity of the Bahamas. I would have preferred a rocky seacoast, interesting island, tall sailing ship, or something similar for the foreground or mid-ground, but alas – none were available. This one had very little post processing, just level tweaks and a small saturation boost to the flat RAW file.
I posted an unremarkable photo yesterday to illustrate a point, I thought I’d use one today of the same general subject which I thought turned out more pleasing. This was just a quick shot from the top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, Maine. At the time I had been more interested in shooting the sunset, and the brightly lit cruise ship in the harbor below, so this was image was something of an afterthought. I think I find it works better as a vertical crop, the original was horizontal.
