the reason

Shooting the quick sunset at the summit of Cadillac Mountain was the reason for much of my dissatisfaction. I was shooting in aperture priority mode, dropped my exposure to two stops underexposed, and forgot to reset it for our harbor cruise the next morning. Translation: all of my shots from the boat were severely underexposed and full of noise when I corrected them in post. Guess I'll have to go back to Maine with new glass and a lesson learned!

I am so sorry to hear that. I hate it when that happens. The image here does look beautiful!

It's moments like this that make me tilt my head back and scream "Khaaaaaaannnnnn!!!!" The realization, not the sunset. The sunset is great.
