This was definitely a throwaway shot, taken at a small fishing village near Bar Harbor, Maine. I was waiting for my shooting buddy to catch up with me, so I cranked off this fairly lame shot of a porch. I knew it was lame when I took it, but once I saw it later in Photoshop, I thought the porch looked okay, but it was the detail in the shot that actually detracted from it. The solution? Make the porch a silhouette and try to make the sky look warmer and more like sunset. You can almost do this whole thing in Camera Raw itself. Well, almost.
