Just got to wonder what kind of insensitive beaurocrat would pick an ugly red plastic fence to surround a national monument like this and ruin any attempt to get a good photograph of it. I can only hope it's temporary. Bodie Island Lighthouse3 (Photographed on Cape Hatteras, North Carolina's Outer Banks, USA.) Minolta A2 1/320s f/5.0 at 11.6mm iso64 As an expediency, rather than go through the laborious task of removing it, which I would do if I were to sell this image, here's the same shot with the red changed to the color of the grass around it using a Hue/Saturation layer in Photoshop on a simple area selection at the bottom. Not perfect, but it...uh...got the red out. Visine anyone? ;-) However, this is just my taste. Which do you prefer?
