Lee has just recently joined the “crazies” and I am so thrilled to have her as a part of the club. She is a very experienced photographer and we can all learn so much from her. After all, that is what this club is about… learning from each other and I think you will enjoy how she approaches her photo and shares her thought process!
“This is Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. I chose it because I like the action of the waves as their line leads your eye towards the lighthouse. The line of the rocky cliffs from the left corner also leads your eye towards the rocks by the light. The wispy clouds also lead your eye back toward the lighthouse. There are so many places your eye can wander but you always come back to the light….even if you wander out toward the horizon and the little lighthouse in the harbor. Even tho my horizon line is just above center, I think it works well to divide sky and ocean. I also like how you can see the ice on the rocks at the shoreline.
I nearly always add a trim line in color to my images and for this one, I picked the red of the smaller building to bring out the reds of the roofs. If I were to have this printed I would probably still choose the red hue to enhance the matt and bring out the roof color. I always add my watermark/credit line in case people decide to “share” my images.
It was 16 degrees with a very fierce wind blowing that day….I loved it!”
