1-15-13 Coquille Lighthouse- this is a 130 sec exposure and then converted to black and whit. I thank you all for the many comments and support of making the other Coquille Lighthouse image number one. What a thrill especially when there were many exceptional photos posted.
10-7-12 Coquille Lighthouse Sunset - Here is another in this series. I really enjoyed shooting this lighthouse during my photo workshop in Bandon. I was there for 6 days and will continue posting images from my time there.
Constructive Criticism Welcome.
10-5-12 Another Coquille Lighthouse image - taken in Bandon, Oregon. I was lucky enough to have a friend point out the location of this stump that nicely framed the lighthouse. Combined two images in Photoshop with different focus points and converted using Topaz Black and White. I then added the texture.
10-4-12 Coquille Lighthouse in Bandon, Oregon. I have been processing all different views and treatments of the lighthouse. I am definitely enjoying the variety. This is a single long exposure taken with a 54 sec shutter speed when there was a boring sky. I used Topaz Labs Simplify using a Buz Slim filter and then finished the processing using Topaz Black and White and modified a Black Rose Dynamic preset. I finished it off using a frame in Photoframe.
10-2-12 Coquille Lighthouse in Black and White - This is a 5 stop HDR processed in Photomatix and Silver Effex Pro 2.
Constructive feedback welcome.
Thanks for all the comments and support around the La Conner images. Trying to get my images posted earlier in the day and maybe soon to get back to early morning.
