Here is a photo of the famous Portland Head lighthouse in Portland Maine. I added some saturation to the water and improved the lighting in Camera Raw, or course. But keep in mind, I do this all on jpegs, because it saves all the original data, if you use Adobe Bridge. For more see this link:
I loved ordering Lobster Bisque in various restaurants on our Maine coast adventure. My favorite was in a quaint little cafe in Kennebunkport, where President George H.W. Bush has a beautiful estate (see below) on his own private peninsula. They say he eats often at this cafe, and there were photos and memorabilia on the walls. No sign of him though. 😉  I also took a shot of his place from across the way with my trusty Tamron 18-270mm zoom lens.
