I some how feel that my images are now somehow suspect! I have honestly not "tampered with" previous images without making it quite clear, this lighthouse image simply surprized me by coming out so well.

Here is a totally unalterd shot of the shed (resized using Windows XP power tools).

Same shot, converted to grayscale, adjusted levels for more contrast and applied some USM using Photo Shop Elements.

Thanks Roy (I think?:-))

This is another angle of the lighthouse, notice that this was shot at 28mm with the kit lens and all of the vignetting is gone.

Here is a detail of a beach side structure, bleached by wind and sea.

Here an old anchor sits on a rock, outlined against the sky. I used the built in flash to add some fill.

Thank you for all of the comments:

Catbells, I think the perspective adjustment is a good idea but in this case the angle of the light itself makes it look a little awkward. Slipe, that version is more realistic.

Kjell, thanks.

Tom, I will try to get a shot on a day when the weather is more co-operative. Twillingate is over an hour and a half away but the fishing shed is only a half hour drive.

Eric, hope you get down here some time. I agree on the ethics issue, I make no alterations beyond levels, sharpening and some cloning out of minor "blemishes" without making it clear what I have done.

Roy, I don't shoot much in RAW mode yet, except to experiment. Until I feel comfortable with the results of my conversions I will continue to use jpeg.

Too all, sorry about the multiple posts but until I set up an account at some photo storage service I must upload my images. Anyone have any suggestions on this issue, I see photobucket fairly often, I want a service which is economical.

Ira
