Schooner Head


I needed a refreshing change from all this blasted heat here in N.C. It’s been well over a week of days with heat indexes between 100-115F.

Located on the eastern side of Mount Desert Island near Bar Harbor, Maine, this little ramshackle place sits exposed to the elements. For the life of me, I can’t imagine why anyone would want to build here. Too salty.

This image was created from a single RAW, but I used a second pass in Adobe Camera Raw to bring up the details, blending the second layer in Luminosity mode, thanks to a tip from Calvin Hollywood. I couldn’t resist touching in just a bit of Photoshop’s Oil Paint filter, but not enough to impact the realism of the photo.

Shout out to Klaus Herrmann for the interesting watermarking technique.
