Ponce De Leon Inlet Lighthouse, the tallest lighthouse in Florida. Unfortunately for me I arrived late, as they were closing up, but just in time to get this shot. Lucky for me I had a nice beautiful sky for a HDR back drop. I’ve toned down my processing for this HDR shot. This one is for all of you who dislike over processed images. And even for some this is still too much! I guess I can’t please everyone.
