Default Montauk Lighthouse Sunset

I'm still processing my pictures from Montauk and I really like this one.

Oo, you're right to like that one Marcelo. Though I'm assuming it's just all of the angles or that it's too early in the morning, but in my head it doesn't look level. I'm sure it IS, but I sometimes make myself crazy trying to make everything upright even though it can't be.

Sorry to get off track. The color of the sky is really nice, but it's especially neat to compare to your "blue hour" shot from earlier.

I can see why Marcelo. What a great subject to be able to return and get varying light shots.

Great shot and composure but for me, just a shade too pink but then it could be my monitor which is not calibrated one bit. Thinking about getting the Spyder calibrator but might be a waste of money for my monitor.

Thank you Sammy, I am looking at the shot and it is level, I am taking as reference the post on the left side and the building on the right. It is a little slanted but it is part of the normal lens distortion.

Thank you Greg, there is something about lighthouses that is so enchanting.

James, I bought 2 spyder calibrator but the results are really bad, it is a waste of money. The last one I bought was a Colormunki with is great and very affordable, the prints are very accurate with what I have in my motor but I noticed when I process B&W I never get a proper tone and balance, so I am using the profile color only when I process color.
