Lighthouse Long Exposure

Today’s image is another shot of the Spring Point Ledge Light in Portland, Maine.  The long exposure here allowed the water to take on that silky look, but it also had an interesting effect on the light and colors in the sky.  The sun was rising to the right of the lighthouse, and the darker colors of the sky to the west (left) took on a more saturated look with the long exposure.  I’m not completely sold on this unintended effect, but I still like how the image turned out.  What do you think?

    I think the different colors in the sky work really well. The dark blue in the upper left act as a nice counter-point to the rocky beach in the opposite corner. Both act to anchor the image and keep the viewers interest on the lighthouse.
