Photographer's Note

Even if it was rainy, i struggled to find suitable subjects. This lighthouse at Étang-du-Nord (Iles-de-la-Madeleine) was a natural for this kind of weather, plus the scenery is just great. When i spotted a boat coming near, i just waited until he arrives at a good placement in the picture. It was just the living extra i needed. And then the three flying birds in the sky passed by... Sometimes, photography is just being lucky enough to be there at the right time! Or to wait a bit for it...
Tech notes : Trying to keep the camera dry and the lens droplet-free was a challenge! Post-process : i worked on the cliff with a mask layer to bring out details with levels. I used a mask because i didnt want to lose the softness of the sky. Sharpened at first with a haze removal setting of 30,60,0 on the original size, the sharpen layer was later on blend at 25% opacity, then darken and lighten USM layers on the final resize. I blurred some green grass in the lower left corner.
