Photographer's Note

The Split Point Lighthouse, affectionately known as the White Queen for obvious reasons, was built in 1891. It provides a beacon overlooking Eagle Rock not only for seafarers but also to travelers on the Great Ocean Road. We were driving down Ocean Road, (from the east several miles away), when we saw this. Not being familiar with the area, it was one of those cases where I saw and took the picture(s), before driving another few miles to find out what it was I shot.

Much of this from: http://www.greatoceanroad.org/surfcoast/town.asp?townid=34

Workflow was as follow:
Shot in Raw - NEF files adjusted for highlights and shadow
Rotated to level and cropped
Adjusted levels
Adjusted curves
Added +10 Saturation
Dodged and burned with overlay layer (5% opacity brush) lightened rock and darkened sky (slight)
Added a layer for sharpening and over-sharpened with Smart Sharpen
Modified sharpening with a layer mask (10% opacity black brush)
Saved as a tiff
For this post, further cropped, reduced image size, framed, and saved as a jpeg
