Lighthouse at Sunset

Featured photo – Lighthouse at Sunset

What about another long exposure image from Greece today? This time it’s showing lighthouse in the port of Chania.

I’m really happy with this image, what happens very rarely for me, for a few reasons. It has nice composition, colours and layers (sky, islands, lighthouse and water), it’s also very calm & tranquil.

BTW this is a photo where Capture One 8 really shined. In Lightroom 6, which I tried first, I had issues getting colours the way I envisioned them for this image. In Capture One 8, which features really nice colour editor and tools for adjusting colour balance, it took me just a few seconds. I hope to write review of Capture One 8 in just a few days, so stay tuned if you’re interested what I think about it.
