Very nice Mike,
I like that first lighthouse shot, but if you will allow me a little critique in the wrong forum, I think you could crop out the bottom "pool" of water just leaving a small strip of land and the base of the small trees on the right. I would then also clone out the white in the water(wave breaking or something floating) as it keeps pulling for my attention. Also try desaturating the cyan a little to see what it looks like. All very minor points of a great shot. The first and third shots seem to have too much shadow recovery going on or something odd about them, any ideas why?
Heading up north myself this weekend to close up the cabin, hope we haven't missed the peak colors. If I could doo half as good as these shots I would be pleased.

I'm with Bob, those are all really nice, especially the last few of the lighthouse.

John.

Thanks guys! Good advice on cloning out the bottom water, I actually have that shot without the water, but posted the full shot with the water here. I could clone out that white foam on the beach, I guess that makes sense and as far as the first and third shots go, they were the two shots taken on a very dark misty rainy day and the others had sunlight... I really don't do much with lightening or darkening shadows... I see your point though. CC is always welcome, it's how we all improve.

Mike

Very nice. I was on that road with my family about 10 years ago. We were coming back from Wisconsin Dells and read in Trailer Life about the scenic route that went around Lake Superior. Brought back nice memories.
