Pigeon Point Lighthouse at Sunset - A California Lighthouse

You should view this at the original or larger sizes to see the detail in the sunset.


Unlike my other image of the Pigeon Point lighthouse I took a great deal of

color tweaking license with the sunset enhancing the image by using the

saturation feature to bring out color detail much greater than was seen with

the camera. This was just done for fun and for the overall

effect on the image. It is not meant to be an accurate representation of the

sunset on that day. I hope you enjoy this interpretation of the sunset. I

think it makes for a catchy wallpaper that grabs the eye of anyone walking

by. It is similar to the over saturated color you might see in an oil

painting by someone like Thomas Kincade or other such artist. Comments are

welcome as this image may undergo further changes based on feedback so now

is your chance to chime in.
