I really liked this shot very much. I think lighthouse shots can be alot of fun to work with. The photographer had asked to remove a truck that was parked behind the lighthouse. I used the pen tool to select the entire structure, lasso tools will work fine too. I copied it to a new photo of a sunset. Duplicated the layer a couple times, and added a spotlight with the render lighting effects function. This allowed the lighthouse to have more subdued lighting.

 

I then used the polygonal lasso tool with different feathers on different layers, to add light beams by simply adding brightness and some contrats to the different selections. I flattened it (saving as a .psd file before flattening), and added a lensflare effect to the flattened .jpg file only.

 

Thanks jefe016 for letting me work on your awesome photo!
