St Mary’s Lighthouse
I prefer a little texture in the sea and on this occasion I found a shutter speed of around 1 second was about right. Because I was tilting an ultra-wide lens downwards the lighthouse ended up leaning out to the left. Lightroom or Photoshop correction tools will lose part of the composition and so I prefer to duplicate the image correct the lens distortion and then blend the corrected lighthouse back into the original image.
