    The park makes it too easy man. I don't think I could take a bad photo here if I tried!

    Agree, it's one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and I know we only saw a small portion of it! Enjoy your photo shoots.

    Went out to shoot the sunset at bass harbor head lighthouse tonight. No clouds, so a really boring sky. But I did get some nice golden light out of it at least. Playing with which way I like the photo best. What do you guys think? Don't be too harsh on the processing, these are really quick edits.

    I like the idea of the b&w due to the boring sky but not crazy about the tones in your first crack at it. I rarely choose b&w so can’t really offer any suggestions on improving the current edit.

    Definitely for me I like the first composition better.

    #3 but if you can mute the brightness of those middle rocks it would really help balance out the rocks on the bottom and the lighthouse on top.

    I also like some of those filters/settings that mute colors but are not quite B&W. I've been meaning to fiddle with them but have never had any time. But I think it may work with this type of image.

    Why is a blue sky boring?

    Idk, I think the color ones are great! I am not a huge fan of the b&w ones to be honest, that scene has so much tone range...

    Number 2 in the latest set. You lose that golden light in the black and white. The comp for number 2 is stronger.

    I prefer #1. The sky has a nice shimmering glow to it, not boring to me. I like the size of the lighthouse in relation to the scene.

    I didn’t mean boring like there was something wrong with it, it’s just boring compared to the usual sunsets that they have at that spot. No clouds, no colors, just kind of blah.
