The Spotlight

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 15 September 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A "spotlight" on Lake Michigan from the early morning sunrise. Almost has an "alien spaceship look" to it. Photo taken just after 7:00 AM on August 23, 2008.

Canon PowerShot A630 1/1250 second F/8.0 8 mm

Fine image. Love the sky with the spotlight on the water, but what has happened to the sky, just above the horizon??. It appears to have a lot of 'banding' in it.

@MaryP: Being the novice that I am, the only thing that I can think of is that it is a result of compressing the image to be able to post it.

Nice colours but why so many "pixels" in the sky ? Did you go for a small resolution ?

Great shot, if you hadn't explained what it was it could have been a sunset
