    I went to Monhegan Island, which is an hour off of the coast of Maine for the day. Monhegan Island is an island famous for its artistic residents. Walking around you'll see photographers, painters, and artisans of all sorts. I was mainly there to escort the interns that are interning at the newspaper I work at for the summer. They were there to write a story; I was there to take photos. This is one of the ones that I came back with:

    More photos to come from my adventure if anyone's interested.

    this photo is amazing. blown sky adds to it rather than take away. colors are vibrant and saturated. nice diagonal composition. also well balanced with the deep colors and large information on right with intricacy on left. crisp, clean and full of life. great photo man.

    I absolutely love this. I love the way the focus fades out, and I love the detail on the focused part.

    This is the kind of photo that makes me wish that I had taken it instead of whoever else ;).

    Thanks guys! Here are a few more from the day:

    This was taken at Lobster Cove on the island. There's a large shipwreck there, and no one that's gone overboard in the cove has ever been recovered or saved.

    Another from Lobster Cove:

    We were standing around for a while when we thought we were supposed to be catching our boat, but we ended up missing it and had to catch a ride back on a freight ship. It was a big confusing ordeal. So this is what I saw sitting next to us, a lobster trap and a few boats.

    [​IMG]

    After hiking up a fairly steep incline, we finally reached the lighthouse that we could see when we landed. Up at the lighthouse, I was intrigued by a strangely welcoming bench.

    Walking through the graveyard, I came across this marker. She clearly loved Monhegan, it just seems the Island hasn't been as kind to her grave marker.

    Overall... Nice work. :)

    This one (above) sticks out to me... I really like it... IMO it would make a great B/W print... So I did a quick edit to see what it would look like...

    From post #6

    I like the 1st 3 pictures.
    But the 1st picture is my favorite, I also like the b/w edit of this one above.
