Evening Glow

I haven’t done very much night shooting, but it’s something I would like to try more often.  I usually pack up towards the end of the magic blue hour, but I decided to try some shots the other night when it was truly night.  This is the keeper’s house at Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde, Maine.  The house is now a museum and store, and they apparently like to leave the lights on at night, for which I said thank you very much.  The interior light combined with the light illuminating the front of the house from the lighthouse itself made for a nice subject against the star-filled sky.  I found it challenging to get an exposure that would show the stars and not blow out the highlights from the house lights.  This exposure was the best compromise I could get.  I was exhausted that night, and didn’t even think about blending multiple exposures.  Oh well, maybe next time.   I’ll have more images to share of this famous lighthouse in future posts.
