Fox River Lighthouse Geneva Illinois
Photograph - Photographic Prints/licensing
This white octagonal lighthouse sits on the shore of the Fox River in Geneva, Illinois. It was built by the Fabyans on their riverside estate approximately, 1905. The Fox river today does not see any commercial traffic, just recreational vehicles and land tourists so the lighthouse never served as a navigational marker. It now resides in Fabyan Forest Preserve, a Kane County Forest Preserve on both sides of the Fox River. A short 40 minute drive west from Chicago, this is a site worth seeing when visiting Chicagoland.

This was made with a ND filter set at 10 and a 3.7 sec exposure. The water ripples are turned into a mirror. The greenish hue in the foreground is the reflection of the green pedestrian bridge smoothed over by time.
I processed the raw image file using Photomatix Pro 5, filters from Topaz Labs including Detail 3 and DeJPEG 4 as well as some minor tweaking in Photoshop including sCurve adjustments, brightness, saturation and the camera raw filter to produce this hdr image.
I donate 25% of the profits from the sale of this image to PROJECT ZERO: The Project to End Prostate Cancer in order to help develop better detection, prevention and a cure for this killer of males around the world.
