Portland Head Lighthouse revisited
20

I recently posted some landscape shots, including this one. Some kind folks with keen eyes made some good suggestions. So I tried processing again, but found myself tumbling down the rabbit hole, watching several PS tutorials and struggling to get the look I wanted.

Anyway, here is the first version again, along with my second effort. Did I go too far? Any other tips or tricks you can share? I struggled mightily with halos around the lighthouse.

The first version I posted

More light and contrast on the lighthouse and rocks. Played with colors in the sky.
