Acadia National Park – Vintage Travel Poster

I’ve started a little tradition for myself when I travel and that’s creating a “vintage” look travel poster out of one of my photographs. You can see the poster I created for Rome here and the Le Massif de Charlevoix poster here.

This time around I wanted to capture an image of Maine’s rugged coastline and what better place to do that then at Otter Point in Acadia National Park.

After processing the image from a single RAW file in Photoshop, I used Topaz Black & White Effects to create the final image. Don’t forget you can use the discount code ELPHOTO to save 15% on all Topaz Labs products.

    • Thanks Rob. It is a great place. I think we were there for a couple of hours just enjoying the view before we dragged ourselves away.

    Brilliant photo, Edith! The processing is spot on, the muted colors enhanced the details on the jagged edges of the rock formations on the coast.
