These shots were taken in mid-June, 2018. All were shot with a NIKON 7100 camera, primarily using Nikon's 18-140 mm DX zoom. Additionally, a Tokina AT-X 116 Pro DX 11-16mm, f2.8 lens was used selectively. Mount Desert Island and throughout the Park are wonderful areas to shoot with a great shot no matter which way you turn. As a matter of fact, you have to restrain yourself from shooting for excessively long hours day-after-day by taking a step back and just enjoying the beautiful environment.

Beautiful collection of blooms. Wow, they are sharp. What lens are you using?

Superbly done Mike. I especially like the last two shots, the vertical image, and the long-range last shot. Catching a reflection of the falls in the vertical adds a perfect touch. All shots in the series are "winners," but the two I've mentioned are from camera positions that I don't recall having seen before. Thank you so much for sharing. Stay strong young man. My best wishes go to you.

Go To the top of this window > click on "Search" > enter "Acadia National Park area. You will get a long list of posts about the area which will give you much info and even some photos taken there.

OMG! That image is gorgeous. Yes, please let us in on the details. I'm hoping to do a milky way image when traveling to a dark sky area in about 3 weeks.

Thanks so much for the post-processing info. Hopefully, I'll get lucky and have some clear weather/skies in Acadia.

Thanks. The trick is in the post-processing.

Your shot is superb. Thank you for the post.

You said the trick is in post-processing. Would you care to share your process?

It is a bucket-list item for me to be able to get a milky-way shot which I hope to do in Acadia N. Park next month.

Since you are based in Delray Beach, FL, and I am in Ocala, FL, I would love to know the details of your trip. Are you flying to somewhere near Banff and renting a car? Are you driving all the way from Florida? Are you flying to a destination semi-near Banff, but still in the USA, etc.? I have long wanted to visit that area but have been unsure about the best way to do it.
Please advise when you have a minute. Thanks!

In my preceding post, I meant to give you a RAVE compliment on the sunset (photo 1). It is so dramatic, well composed and the color is outstanding.

I agree with COs post about HDR.
As an alternative to that, if you want to keep the foreground very dark (like you have it), I would spot out the tiny lights in that same area and also over to the lower right, there appears to be a fat horizontal line that I would k/o.

If you want a high panorama of mountains, you could take a gondola or a chairlift to about mid-mountain in Lionshead or Vail. I believe they may only be running on Saturday during late-September. There are some nice views of the Gore Range to the east.

A couple of minutes in Adobe Camera Raw filter and another minute or so doing spotting with the spot-healing brush tool and I think there is the improvement you are looking for. I have added attachment. hope it goes through.

I dropped them into Photoshop camera raw filter. The first thing I did was give the color temp a very slight warming touch since the photos looked too much like concrete instead of nature to me. I then pulled the highlights slider way down, adjusted the shadows a touch lighter, then applied clarity to about +28. I think the results are more pleasing. I can send you the revised files via "WeTransfer" if you want to give me your email address.

One added note, be sure to focus manually to get sharp detail. When I made moon shots the auto focus setting was just okay. Manual focus at infinity was not sharp. backing off the infinity setting gave me the crisp detail I was looking for.

Like the second shot the best! The first and third have so much smoothing of the water that it appears to be snow. Again, love that second shot.
