Nubble Lighthouse Magic Hour || Lightroom Only

Occasionally I like to showcase the power of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom by processing one of my images using only Lightroom. Seeing as I haven’t done such a post in a while, I thought it was about time to do another! This image comes from the Nubble Light (aka Cape Neddick Lighthouse) in York, Maine. I…

Yokohama Bay Evening View

So, a little background to this image. Almost 4 years ago I took a trip down to Yokohama, which is about a 2 hour trip by train from where I live. My plan was to get there around sunset and shoot into the early evening around the Yokohama bay area. I ended up running a…

  • Calum - Hi Les, I have mainly used long exposure shooting around Yokohama at night but you used HDR blend instead – what do you get from HDR rather than long?
    Ps there are some other good little spots close byReplyCancel

    • leslie - Hey Calum! Basically this allows me to balance the light better. This photo is made up of 3 different exposures that I took using the bracketing function on my camera. The longest exposure was around 20 seconds long. That longer exposure gives nice details in the darker areas like the grass or sky, but it leaves most of the bright areas blown out. By blending in a darker exposure, I’m able to return some detail to those areas as well. So for example, if you were to zoom in on the image all the way, you could actually see the ceilings in some of the windows in this image, whereas in the 20 second exposure, it’s just light. If I make it back down to Yokohama by myself again I may try to send you an email and get you to show me some of those little spots. 🙂ReplyCancel

Last summer I had the chance to take a trip to New Hampshire with my family, in order primarily to visit my wife’s side of the family. We had a great few weeks, and as it was the first time in 3 years that we had been back to America, you can imagine how much…

Late Afternoon Over Tokyo || Lightroom Only

The beginning of every year is always a bit busy for my family, filled with many celebrations, among them being my youngest daughter’s birthday. This year we intended to celebrate by taking her to the Tokyo Skytree, but on her actual birthday my son got chicken pox. Then a couple of weeks later when we…

Neddick Morning Motion

Several weeks back I posted an image from the Cape Neddick Lighthouse (aka Nubble Light) in York, Maine. The processing behind that image was pretty involved, so with this version using a different composition and a longer exposure, I decided to do my edits in Lightroom only. As you’ve seen in my other Lightroom Only…
