Title: Beautiful sunsets
Post by: Pitbullo on July 19, 2012, 05:49:15 AM
A few sunsets from last year.
Please add more!

First one, is awesome!
Second one the gamma needs to come down a bit IMO.
Third one is good, but ... did you modify it at all, is it really that pink?

Peace! 8)

Thank you for a quick reply! :)
The last picture is very purple, I agree. It is an old picture, taken in jpeg for some reason. I do have other pictures from the same place, approx. at the same time (last year), and they were just as purple. A bit more contrasty though. I do agree with you though, it is perhaps a tad too purple.
It often gets quite foggy out there, and that gives the sunsets a very intense color.


Here is a more recent picture from the same place, taken june this year. All I have done is to add some clarity, a bit of NR, and some sharpness. No Color correction, and this is pretty much similar to what it looked like in real life.

Another HDR one. A terrible lightning storm was going on behind me when I took this one,
so that I didn't dare get out of the car and took this out of the driver's side window.

5D MK3 EF16-35 at 16mm, F6.7, ISO100, 1/250 - 1/30 sec, 7 Bracketed shots, processed with EasyHDR.

Thank you! Most of the time, all I end up doing is increasing contrast and saturation with the help of Capture One for Raw editing and then in Photoshop I use Nik Software mostly again for contrast / saturation. I stay away from replacing colour etc - basically I just intensify the scene :)

Sometimes I also exposure blend (+/- 1-2 stops) if required to control the shadows and highlights.

@Aglet - from what?  ;D I mean the first "from"

Haha!  ;D
That's the beauty of using a system with super low noise; take one shot exposed to not clip the highlight areas and bring the rest back in post for an HDR effect without having to try bracket a physically changing scene.

I can't do this kind of shot with my Canon gear without running into serious noise problems in the darker areas. My 7D and 5D2 are terrible at this kind of work. 5D3 isn't much better than 5D2 from my limited testing.  Hopefully a few FF body from Canon with improve this.

In fact, I can continue to push the exposure curve in that first shot to the point that the beach in the lower right corner is up to midtones will full detail and only a bit of chroma noise than can be processed out. An impressive imaging machine, that's why I bought one and that's whey my Canon gear gets used less.

You'd be surprised to hear that others see a lot of room in workflow with current gear. Don't let your tools limit yourself  :)

I didn't have problems with noise in my shots, they were with a 5D MkIII, no problems with a MkII either. That's what grad filters are for.

I like the shots you posted, which look like NDgrad at capture?..

When possible I'd rather apply ND grad in post.  The first sunset shot I posted used 2 mild ones applied in LR3 + fill light and +EV.

The other 2 shots have NO filters, capture or post, just color and contrast.  I was shooting fast, got about a dozen wicked images in about 2 minutes, various orientations, while also hand-holding my 60D which I used for about 50 shots over a longer period.  I can't wing an ND grad that fast if I wanted to.  The 60D's shots all look great too, no need to push any shadows all the time.

That first shot tho - I know no way in hades my 5D2 could do that. It's too noisy.  Push 2 EV with it and it's already showing plaid shadows.

+1.  I am less than impressed with the noise on my 5DIII. I find the 22mpx enough for me, but expected far better low noise performance. Using Topaz denoise doesn't help much either. OTOH the problem is probably behind the Camera.

+1.  I am less than impressed with the noise on my 5DIII. I find the 22mpx enough for me, but expected far better low noise performance. Using Topaz denoise doesn't help much either. OTOH the problem is probably behind the Camera.
Cheers

Here is an example 1/4000s, 400mm F5.6 ISO4000, its easy to see in the two squares. Now thats
at ISO4000, so obviously at anything higher its worse. In this case when I tried Topaz denoise
(the example here is the BEFORE state) it worked pretty well.

So, is this too much noise? And its not in the darkest parts

Those settings don't make any sense to me... and why is the bird & his wing not frozen at 1/4000?  And not in focus at f/5.6 with a focal length of 400mm?   

I may be wrong, but shooting this at 1/1600th, f/3/2 since it's 400mm focal length, and iso 100 - 400 depending on time of day,  seems like could be a quick and easy solution to take care of all your noise problems, to me anyway...   At ISO 4000, you're just asking for issues IMHO... No offense intended... :)

I like both sharpness and ...noise (It does not seem bad for ISO4000, but that's me). However, is this a screen capture at 100% from DPP? DPP uses the jpg file for high quality view as far as I have found so actually the noise is higher in raw.

Only a few days in the winter months allow the setting sun to shine through the door at Pfeiffer Beach... then it is swarmed by photographers.

Snapped this as I was walking the dog yesterday.

Particularly pleased with the way the chip handled the tonal gradient in the sky with no banding, and maintain detail in the snowy foreground despite shooting directly into the sun.

Not bad for a "DR challenged" Canon  ;D

I like the composition, it reminded me that too often when i take picture of this kind, I come home and find out that there is some annoyance like that in this case for example, the sea horizon would touch the lower part of the lighthouse, or the top of the hill on the right would just touch the horizontal line of clouds, etc... and then I can not not see it... and I havent noticed this kinda thing on your picture  :)

Love the Grand Canyon image!  Excellent.  I have some images from that same spot, unfortunately, the crew I was with, last time I was there decided we had to pull out by noon!  Man, I couldn't believe it!  I was on the rim from 5:30 am till noon, last one to board the RV!  Got some sunrises, sadly no sunsets... next time out will be different!

Sunsets create shadows.

Where are the shadows in this?

Oh, I forgot, it has been HDR'd to death.

Why? To me it looks more natural than the original image. I can't speak for the rest of the population, but I can see much more than my camera (in term of dynamic range) and it is not my fault :). There are shadows, but they are not black, because this is how I saw it.

Not exactly a 'beautiful sunset', but one of the strangest sunset skies I've seen. Shot from the back of my house a few days ago, straight off the camera. Must have been to do with different thickness of the clouds. The whole sky was a dusky brick red / pink making the whole scene quite dark despite the sun visible.

I just got back from Key West recently, so how about a Key West sunset.

6D with 24-105 at 24mm (after lens correction using PTLens...) The barrel distortion is really awful sometimes at 24mm!

No need to insult? You sounded like you insulted the photographer who uploaded the Tahoe sunset with your "saturation slider" comment.

And, spending weekends nearly every week in Tahoe for winter to snowboard, and going there for day hikes in the summer, yes, Tahoe has some amazing sunsets thanks to all the amazing clouds that forms in that mountain region.

Very nice. Love the colors. I find if I don't have the horizon dividing the photo in half (rule of thirds), it often makes for a more interesting and dynamic shot. Not really a hard rule, but a guideline. Post some more when you get a chance. :)

Yup! Lovely pics. I would have changed the framing of the first one. Taken one with more sky and a second with more sea... The third I would not change the framing despite the horizon being in the middle.

for me:
- full manual usually
- no filters
- lowest practical ISO based on focal length and shutter speed
- aperture for required DoF
- shutter speed to expose w-o clipping highlites (you may be over-exposing and losing color and detail if you relay on camera metering)

and it helps to find a location where you can actually get some vivid sunsets/rises!
dusty prairies are great, and the closer to the earth's poles you can get then the longer these events last.
In northern Alberta in summer, sunset colors like this can go on for an hour or so.  Much of it after sunset.

nope, no ND filters on my shots
if you're referring to a graduated ND filter, those can be really useful at times but I don't use them either.
If I have to, I'll pull an ND grad effect in Post (Lightroom does this nicely if needed).
Sometimes you may need to do an NDG filter, sometimes not.
In my examples above it's just a straight shot as is.
I usually start at 100 iso, 1/500 and f/8 (sunny 16) and adjust as required for the conditions.

MO should have some great sunsets!  I used to travel I15 every fall years ago and those dusty skies were sometimes full of color.  Good luck! :)

I nearly always use grads, with a few older ones using HDR. I was using a reverse grad from Singh Ray, until Upgraded to the Lee system and it no longer fit, so I had to make do with conventional grads. Yesterday, my new reverse grad arrived, so I can start playing again. Settings vary, but generally, because of the type of terrain I tend to shoot, I'm looking at maximum DoF, so typically around f/16 on full frame, f/22 at a push or f/11 or sometimes wider, if I can get away with it. I have also deliberately reduced shutter speed for effect sometimes, either with a polarise, solid ND or lowering the ISO to 50.

Would anyone mind presenting their "sunset" techniques/settings while I put my jaw back into its joints. 
Thanks much.

Hi, I wouldn't go so far as to say there are any specific "sunset techniques" as much as there are general photographic techniques. It's basically the same as photographing a lot of other landscape stuff; decide on how much DOF you want, what to expose for, composition and mood, then press the trigger..
Now that's simplifying it a lot.
Especially in shooting things like sunset, sunrises etc. one of the more difficult things to deal with is contrast.
Compromises would often have to be made, but there are things that can help.
ISO, shutter speed, f-stop. These basically decide the exposure, based on what the camera typically wants to expose for; a medium gray exposure. especially when shooting handheld, or if you don't want motion artifacts in your shots then compromises in either would have to be made.
As I said dealing with contrasts in these types of shots is often essential.
Typically the sky will be blindingly hot and burnt out if you want to preserve details of the scenery.
Multiple exposures and a lot of fiddling in PS, the Gimp or LR can bring those back under control, but not always.
ND grad filters, of various densities (loss of stops) are in my opinion essential tools to bring the contrast between sky and land under control.
There are various makes and densities of ND grads, Lee, Hitec, Cookin are a few of the makers.
Cokin, which I've stuck to most (price and availability in Norway) are cheap and does the job well. But as far as I can see they offer just grads that are linear, where the slope of the density increase (loss of light) is linear across the filter. The other makers offer reverse grads (I've just received a Hitec one I'm looking forward to try. These are darker around the middle of the frame, perfect to bring the horizon under control before gradually sloping off towards the "top"
Also the other makers offer ND grads that have a more defined edge (steeper slope) in the middle. (hard edge they are referred to)
Anyway, meter the sky and landscape to settle on how many stops difference there are, then settle for one that evens out the contrast as you want it. (though don't overdo it, naturally our eyes expect the sky in such situations to be brighter than the landscape.)
In use, either get a filter holder or just hold it in front of the lens, then slide it up and down to get the right effect. (remove the lens hood)
If you are shooting with a tripod I often tend to use manual exposure in combination with my 7D's live view and exp. simulation modes. This will give you the effect immediately. Slide up or down, pick a different filter, or filters to stack until you are satisfied.
If you overdo stacking of the filters, at least with my Cokins, an often undesired color cast can be introduced where the filtering effect is the strongest.
One problem with ND grads is if you are shooting a landscape with lots of detail on the sides of the frame, like trees, mountains as seen from a valley etc. (I'm from Norway, mountains and valleys are very prominent here..) These features will then shot a distinct linear darkening that reveals the use of an ND grad, but this can be fixed either by multiple exposures, flash (think trees, not mountain sides) or some selective dodging or burning.

If you look in my flick stream, I've added comments to a lot of my recent images on filter usage. http://www.flickr.com/photos/trondstromme/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/trondstromme/)

Before you tell me the horizon isn't straight on the second one, simply understand that every time I try to fix it, it ends up making the stairs not look straight, and given they're the main focus of the image, I'd rather have the horizon slightly off than the stairs. Otherwise, C&C welcome!

I was finally able to get a new Singh-Ray reverse grad filter. It was the one filter I missed after upgrading to the Lee system from the Cokin P. It arrived in the week (very quickly and it avoided import duty, unlike the last time, where it added about 40% to the cost). I got to try it out on some shots last night. The tide was further in than I expected, so I couldn't get the compositions I wanted though.

Would anyone mind presenting their "sunset" techniques/settings while I put my jaw back into its joints. 
Thanks much.

Hi, I wouldn't go so far as to say there are any specific "sunset techniques" as much as there are general photographic techniques. It's basically the same as photographing a lot of other landscape stuff; decide on how much DOF you want, what to expose for, composition and mood, then press the trigger..
Now that's simplifying it a lot.
Especially in shooting things like sunset, sunrises etc. one of the more difficult things to deal with is contrast.
Compromises would often have to be made, but there are things that can help.
ISO, shutter speed, f-stop. These basically decide the exposure, based on what the camera typically wants to expose for; a medium gray exposure. especially when shooting handheld, or if you don't want motion artifacts in your shots then compromises in either would have to be made.
As I said dealing with contrasts in these types of shots is often essential.
Typically the sky will be blindingly hot and burnt out if you want to preserve details of the scenery.
Multiple exposures and a lot of fiddling in PS, the Gimp or LR can bring those back under control, but not always.
ND grad filters, of various densities (loss of stops) are in my opinion essential tools to bring the contrast between sky and land under control.
There are various makes and densities of ND grads, Lee, Hitec, Cookin are a few of the makers.
Cokin, which I've stuck to most (price and availability in Norway) are cheap and does the job well. But as far as I can see they offer just grads that are linear, where the slope of the density increase (loss of light) is linear across the filter. The other makers offer reverse grads (I've just received a Hitec one I'm looking forward to try. These are darker around the middle of the frame, perfect to bring the horizon under control before gradually sloping off towards the "top"
Also the other makers offer ND grads that have a more defined edge (steeper slope) in the middle. (hard edge they are referred to)
Anyway, meter the sky and landscape to settle on how many stops difference there are, then settle for one that evens out the contrast as you want it. (though don't overdo it, naturally our eyes expect the sky in such situations to be brighter than the landscape.)
In use, either get a filter holder or just hold it in front of the lens, then slide it up and down to get the right effect. (remove the lens hood)
If you are shooting with a tripod I often tend to use manual exposure in combination with my 7D's live view and exp. simulation modes. This will give you the effect immediately. Slide up or down, pick a different filter, or filters to stack until you are satisfied.
If you overdo stacking of the filters, at least with my Cokins, an often undesired color cast can be introduced where the filtering effect is the strongest.
One problem with ND grads is if you are shooting a landscape with lots of detail on the sides of the frame, like trees, mountains as seen from a valley etc. (I'm from Norway, mountains and valleys are very prominent here..) These features will then shot a distinct linear darkening that reveals the use of an ND grad, but this can be fixed either by multiple exposures, flash (think trees, not mountain sides) or some selective dodging or burning.

If you look in my flick stream, I've added comments to a lot of my recent images on filter usage. http://www.flickr.com/photos/trondstromme/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/trondstromme/)
Thanks and your pictures are AMAZING.  Also, I spent 6 weeks between Narvik and Harstad.

Just to add, there are basically two types of ND grads, soft and hard. As the names suggest, soft grads have a gradual change from light to dark and are best used for uneven horizons, such as mountains. They are harder to see in the viewfinder and therefore take a bit more practice to use effectively. Hard grads have a definite edge between the filtered and unfiltered section and are obvious in the viewfinder (and also in the final image if not positioned correctly). They are used for straight horizons or against the edge of a mountain. Reverse grads are hard grads where the gradation is opposite to normal and are usually the best filters for sunset/sunrise. Until recently, only Singh-Ray made them, but in the past 12 months or so, Hi-Tech have also produced them, although there have been reports of quality assurance issues, with some filters not being straight.
I used Hi-Tech filters with my Cokin P system for a couple of years, they are more neutral than the Cokin ones. I now use the Lee system, since using full frame for landscapes, with Lee filters, except for the recent Singh-Ray reverse grad.

Windmill in the middle of the Australian desert.
Nice colours. On a framing perspective, I would have panned a bit to the right and got the windmill on the 1/3rd vertical instead of being smack in the middle. That way the sun's glow would also come to the 1/3rd vertical on the right. You have the horizon on the 1/3rd horizontal right.

If you have a chance to shoot it again do try it.

Rpt, You are right about the framing was not exactly how I wonted it. But I liked the light in this one. Hopefully I can shoot it again at some point as the sunsets are fantastic out here. The one this night was actually kinda average..LOL thanks for the positive critic.. appreciated.

My front yard, post sunset glow through fog after a heavy rain about 6 weeks ago.  It looked a lot darker than this to my eye, with a bit less color.  Took some tweaking in LR.  Exposure 1/5 second at 120mm, on a monopod with "OS" switched on...Sigma 120-400 lens, 6D, at ISO 1250 (and yes it autofocused!).  Was very under-exposed and white balance was too cool (noise after boosting exposure and color temp in post was similar to a normal exposure at ISO 6400).

Serendipidy, RPT, Click, Lion Rock, Sporgon, Thank you all so much!  The real thrill was just being there to witness it!  I had pulled over and was reading in a brochure how they have this phenomenon they called "Fire in The Sky" and it doesn't happen everyday and not exactly predictable when it will happen.  As I'm reading, I notice the brochure starts turning red!  I look up and there it is, right in front of me!!

It was over in 4 minutes flat, barely had time to turn my camera on and expose for it (wish I exposed more for the mountains) and only got a few images before it was nothing more than a memory!  Hope to see it again some time!  Glad you liked it and thanks again!

You have to be prepared, or very quick when the opportunity presents itself.

Edit: I straightened the horizon on the second one. Thanks for the tip.

Ken and all the others have inspired me to also try out a few of my sunsets. Here you go........

I'm loving what I've seen so far. You have to be prepared, or very quick when the opportunity presents itself.

Cheers Brian

Nice, especially the second one.

Argh, damn horses ! The more you have to do with them the more you realise why the internal combustion engine was invented.

Anyway a crutch makes for a good camera support  ;)

On my way back from my regular visit to the Scottish Highlands, I stopped off in the Glencoe area, this time in Kinlochleven. I finally saw the first spectacular sunset of the autumn. I've always found that sunsets seem to be much more impressive in the autumn (fall) for some reason.

I started off wide, with the 24mm f/1.4 MkII on the 5D MkIII.

After waiting for the right light for half an hour and stopping to photograph something in the opposite direction, with the colours getting more intense by the minute, I finally decided "job done" and packed everythying away. I started walking back to the hotel, but looked around, only to find the colours had got even stronger. I was torn, as the filters take a long time to sort out, plus I had the 70-200 attached. In the end I couldn't resist, so just put the 70-200 on the tripod without any filters and this was the result.

As I was finally walking back to the hotel, I passed a family literally running in the opposite direction, only to hear the little girl say "Mummy, it looks like the end of the road is on fire".

Sunsets in stormy conditions can give some very stranage ans surreal colours, but I've never been lucky enough to be in position to get a photo, usually I find I'm driving to/from work. I can't make up my mind which is my favourite, probably one of the first two, but with a lightning strike :P.

Thanks Ken, it's certainly a place for the landscape photographer (but also for the wildlife photographer). The Western Isles are probably among the best for teh quality of lighting though, there's something unique about it (when it isn't drenched by rain). Have a look at some of the shots from Skye. I wan't lucky enough to capture the best of the lighting, but there's plenty about, especially around Elgol.

After waiting for the right light for half an hour and stopping to photograph something in the opposite direction, with the colours getting more intense by the minute, I finally decided "job done" and packed everythying away. I started walking back to the hotel, but looked around, only to find the colours had got even stronger. I was torn, as the filters take a long time to sort out, plus I had the 70-200 attached. In the end I couldn't resist, so just put the 70-200 on the tripod without any filters and this was the result.

As I was finally walking back to the hotel, I passed a family literally running in the opposite direction, only to hear the little girl say "Mummy, it looks like the end of the road is on fire".

Those are both fabulous shots.  The first one has a great lead in with the little stream, and the compression of the color layers on the second one is equally fabulous!
Thanks Dustin. My landscape work has been almost non-existent this year, with just a handful of previous shots, so it's always good to know I haven't lost my touch.
Richard, I agree with Dustin, these are fabulous!  I really like the first as well, very nice composition.  Looking at the second, how can I not like it equally as well?  It's really quite well done!  I so need to get over there one of these days!

Thanks Ken, it's certainly a place for the landscape photographer (but also for the wildlife photographer). The Western Isles are probably among the best for teh quality of lighting though, there's something unique about it (when it isn't drenched by rain). Have a look at some of the shots from Skye. I wan't lucky enough to capture the best of the lighting, but there's plenty about, especially around Elgol.
I'll be planning my trip carefully before I go.  I want to get to the best places for photos... Thanks again! :)

Hallo everyone,

here are a few Sunsets from a small german island in the north see, Langeogg.

We were there for nine nights and I tried to catch a magnificent sunset on eight of those nights, but the weather didn't want to cooperate. At least there was a windsurfer for there for a little distraction.

On the one night I didn't go, the sunset was magnificent, the last photo is one from our patio after I looked out and saw the sky on fire.

I'm just starting to develop my skills so any constructive criticism is welcome.

All shots wit a 6D and 24-105L

I've been experimenting with light painting.  Six 30 sec. exposures composited in PS with a little help from a flashlight.  The sky is one exposure without much processing.  It really was that color.

Hi dilbert.
Please could you show us a picture of yours to show us how it should be done, or if you don't have one perhaps a detailed explanation of the technique and processing needed to achieve no blown highlights. Whilst you at doing that the rest of us can take our pictures wih blown highlights and at least have something to show!

Cheers Graham.

I can't believe how many of these images have blown highlights.

Blown Highlights: Use graduated ND filters :) Obviously that doesnt fix it 100% but it makes it better.

Here are 2 from last years holiday in greece (using the grad nds)

It is very easy to take sunset pictures without blown highlights. All you have to do is wait until the sun is well below the horizon, or you can use photoshop to subtlety darken the offending area in a manner so that the blown highlights will not be noticeable :)

I can't believe you could be so crass.

It is not difficult to prevent blown highlights, just expose for them, but if you do that, then like your example image, the shadows are blocked up. Unless the sun is very low and or there is a lot of atmospheric pollution there is way more dynamic range in a sunset image that contains the sun than any camera can capture, including anything Sony might make. You are not clever, and others are not stupid, you choose what to sacrifice, highlights or shadows, or use more advanced techniques as already mentioned.

No special tricks or methods. No filters.
I like the pastel colour of the sky...

When you consider that a sunset picture ranges from the sun (very bright) to items in the evening shade (very dark) you would probably need 25 stops (just guessing) of dynamic range to cover both. Personally, I like to expose for the brighter areas and leave the rest darker.... it sets a mood...

EDIT: just compared settings on two pictures.... make that 29 stops of difference!

Hi dilbert.
Please could you show us a picture of yours to show us how it should be done, or if you don't have one perhaps a detailed explanation of the technique and processing needed to achieve no blown highlights. Whilst you at doing that the rest of us can take our pictures wih blown highlights and at least have something to show!

Cheers Graham.

I can't believe how many of these images have blown highlights.

This is one of the first ever sunset pictures that I took with a DSLR. Unfortunately it gets converted to sRGB for the web ...

Dull and lifeless.

The French will be so glad to hear you describe their capital city in that way.

This has nothing to do with where an image was taken, it's the depiction of it. That shot has no soul.

A photographer cannot capture what isn't there, so if there is no soul in that photograph then there is no soul in Paris.

Wow, that's really pathetic. Is that the best you have?

Well why don't you show me how it is done? After all, you've been shooting for 40 years so after that much time behind a camera, every click of your button must be gold.

Doesn't matter how long someone shoots, no one ever makes great photography with every click. Check your PMs.

CANON RUMORS - I came for the rumors, I stayed for the dramas..  ;D

It would be a drama if we could see them duke it out.

Very dramatic looking image, but it looks like a composite to me, I don't have a problem with it if it is, just saying it doesn't look "right".

Here is the image and a crop of an anomaly, the "reflection" in the windows is a continuation of the clouds, not a reflection.

If I had taken this shot I would have rejected it straight away in pp once I saw that the sky was so blown out.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I'm right and that yoh's wrong.

So therefore I'd like to hear what others think?

Maybe you just need to accept such things in extreme light situations, after all at this exposure there is detail in the buildings on the shadow side.

Just wondering....

Cheers Brian

I really didn't do this one justice, but thought every one here would enjoy it. Looked like a rain out so I wasn't expecting anything and of course the best things happen when least prepared. By the time I retrieved the camera it was fading fast, so just a few quick shots . This is probably 1/3 the intensity that it started at, I am not very good at color adjustment the red was actually much deeper than it came out.

Cutting grass in my yard and I turn west and wow.  So I jump off, run in to grab the camera and 70-200 2.8 and wow is going away quickly - too quickly.  Moments earlier was better but I still like this shot since it almost looks like a lake in the background.

Hello!

This photo kind of surprised me, because those colors came pretty naturally in it.
It's HDR photo from 3 images, added them in photomatix, done that and then imported in LR and added like +5 to saturation and couple brush strokes of red in sky and water.

Now that's a very nice shot Jon, but there is something about it that just doesn't seem to really do it for me, almost as if I'd like more contrast.  Can you explain what you perceive to be the major gain of the merge.  Admittedly, I don't really qualify to be a judge of such things but I'm always trying to learn from these exchanges. ;)

As we've been debating in the 7D II thread, Canon sensors are indeed severely DR limited in situations like this. To get detail around the sun, and get detail in the foreground, I had to use a 5-frame bracketed exposure. This is the first (-4 stop) frame (and pulled):

(http://i.imgur.com/0IxsxmE.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/GuojO3J.jpg)

This is the last (+4 stop) frame:

(http://i.imgur.com/WsGd1Lu.jpg)

This is the middle frame, and a version of it that's been processed to maximize shadow and highlights:

(http://i.imgur.com/B9Jh1ou.jpg)
(http://i.imgur.com/xRXHII5.jpg)

However this is the sun from the processed middle frame, with posterization:

(http://i.imgur.com/YqImETx.jpg)

And the shadow noise from the processed middle frame:

(http://i.imgur.com/KbVHmhk.jpg)

To me, the posterization and shadow noise is completely unacceptable. Hence, the reason for the HDR. I think there is actually a lot of contrast in the HDR image I've shared...tonal range goes from near complete black to pure white, there is a lot of contrast in the clouds. There is some flare right over the sunflower field, which is probably where your seeing a loss of contrast most. I could probably try to deepen the tones in the foreground more, I haven't actually finished processing this shot yet.

Anyway, this is a GIF that shows the differences in foreground detail between the first, third, and fifth exposures:

(http://i.imgur.com/Jq7Vm9g.gif)

To me, the processed middle image from the bracket is just not good enough. I wanted more, I wanted better detail throughout the entire image, right into the sun. Hence the reason for the HDR. I'm the first to admit, I am not nearly as skilled with landscapes as I am with birds and wildlife. I've always had problems with shadow noise when processing landscapes. It was actually not quite as bad on the 7D at ISO 100 (ironically)...it's really bad with the 5D III. Completely unacceptable, in my opinion.

Ah, I understand your question now. I think it's just that your not seeing the benefits of the HDR at full size. Here is a comparison of the HDR in the "shadows" (not really shadows, it's definitely midtones, since it's the sunflowers, which are the primary subject of the image), and a single-frame shadow pull:

(http://i.imgur.com/oYD57ZU.gif)

If I wanted to print this (I do, actually), the single-frame shadow pull is entirely unacceptable for that purpose. I already have people who want prints of this, family and friends, and I'm sure others will as well. At 13x19, the size I usually print at home, the difference in detail and detail clarity between the HDR and the shadow pull is totally obvious. There is a huge difference in detail, the HDR version has TONS more, and it's crisper and sharper and has more color fidelity. For larger prints, even gallery wraps up to 48x36", the better detail of the HDR is that much more important, because of the need to upsample.

The HDR result was pretty simple. I imported to Lightroom, then selected all five for this set, right-clicked and chose to "Merge to HDR Pro in Photoshop..." When that was done, I chose 32-bit, and "Tone in ACR". I then tweaked things a bit in ACR, mainly exposure, a little bit of curves, applied a gradient (like a digital GND) to the top to bring out the blues more, did some brushing around the sun (just to deal with some posterization), and that was pretty much it.

I know you're getting a lot of praise for this, but to me, it looks totally unnatural.  It looks as if it's been shot on an alien planet with two suns, one in the frame, and one behind the viewer.  Or it's a composite.

The root cause is that the foreground is just way, way too bright.  As a result, overall scene contrast is way too low.  Humans are very sensitive to light that isn't right, which makes real composites really hard - you have to get the light to match in the two frames you're combining.

My suggestion would be to start with just one image, probably the zero or the +2 (the +2 if you can hold the sky okay with -highlights) and just boost shadows enough to be able to see the sunflowers.  Then make sure you have plenty of contrast on the flowers so the pedals seem to be illuminated from behind and the edges and/or pedals themselves are "glowing" from the light passing through them (could be some +whites and +clarity).

By the way, the horizon is sloping down on the right.

Hi Jon,  I think Lee Jay may have put in words what I was feeling.  There is this loss of sense of the direction of the lighting and for me I also seem to like areas where it's just plain dark and lacking in detail - maybe that creates contrast that contributes to a sense of awe.  My bias seems to be towards under exposed.  While your composition may be "unnatural" that doesn't mean it isn't impressive and just what the doctor ordered for those who don't share my bias.

 :-[ I only use DPP and as I said am not the one to judge.  However, this got me wondering about my prior tendency that I've largely abbandoned, that is, pulling more detail from the shadows of my fairly correctly exposed bird shots (up for blacks, down for blown whites (decreases contrast)).  Any thoughts?

Title: Re: Beautiful sunsets
Post by: Jack Douglas on August 26, 2014, 12:03:48 PM
Happened to notice this on the 7D2 thread and I guess it descibes what I was falling into and maybe sheds light on the flower lighting debate.

When i first got my D600 I was lifting shadows right, left and center (and more :P). It was like an obsession. I was intentionally looking for scenes that would need shadow lifting. After some time it wasn't fun anymore. Soon though, couple of things occurred to me. a) I wasn't doing photography anymore, I wad doing experiments only. b) In my kind of photography I very rarely needed extreme shadow lifting that Canon couldn't handle. After the realization fun in photography has returned and more than 90% of the time they are done with Canon gears.
So, I would say if someone's work involves lot's of shadow lifting and if someone is not willing to do other techniques (filter, exposure blending etc), then Exmor will do a much better job than Canon. But don't expect miracles. Better doesn't mean perfect.

100% in agreement

Also, I find that for flower photos, the best ones usually are side-lit or front lit in order to make the colors pop. Sunflowers tend to face the east, so sunrise photos make most sense. Sunset photos of sunflowers are typically dull because the colors are washed out. Unless there's some compelling background, I don't see any benefit to shoot into the sun for sunflower shots; such is the case for the posted photos.

Jack
Title: Re: Beautiful sunsets
Post by: jrista on August 26, 2014, 12:49:17 PM
@Jack and Lee Jay: You guys should go stand out in a sunflower field some time, and tell me how bright the foreground looks compared to the sky and sun. The sunflowers, despite facing away from the sun, don't look dark and deeply shaded...they are much brighter. I may have them just a little too bright in this photo...but I think you guys are looking for a photo that is not actually representative of reality when you ask for the foreground to be so much darker.

I remember the shading of the foreground...there were no deep black shadows at all...the ground underneath the flowers was clearly visible. There were no very dark shadows underneath the upper leaves, etc. The only real major difference here is that the sky to my eyes was not nearly as colorful. It was more washed out in reality, however I prefer the more colorful version I have in my photos.

Anyway, I don't expect everyone to like these photos. I haven't finished processing them yet...I have about half a dozen and I have to do HDR on all of them. I'll post them all when I'm done, as I'd like to hear your thoughts. However I think you should try to photograph sunflowers into a sunset sometime, and let me know what you think. You might be surprised at what your eyes see vs. what the camera sees. ;)

I agree that my image should probably have a slightly darker foreground, but I do think that your version is much too dark in the shadows. I like to replicate what I see, and what I saw wasn't so contrasty. I think contrast is often largely a matter of taste, so I understand not everyone will like every photo. I'm working on some other HDR photos from this same field...when I'm done with them, I'll touch up this one, and share them all.

You absolutely do not need HDR techniques for shooting "indoor under subdued lighting" and rarely for  "shooting at night" either. HDR is not about getting detail in a dark image, it is about getting detail when there is a big difference between the lightest parts of the image and the darkest.

Thank you. Yes, it was good weather last weekend and I went to mountains to take some photos. I really enjoy photography and being in nature/mountains, so this is perfect combination for me. ;)

Thanks, Graham. Just usual processing for clarity, sharpness, etc., but the intensity and color, if anything, had to be toned down. I had shot some more classic sunset shots, like this...

(http://wetracy.smugmug.com/Water/Ferries-1/i-6jCLDCH/0/L/DSCF1844-L.jpg)

then I went inside and sat down for a few minutes. When we were close to docking I went out on deck and was greeted with this amazing scene. Everyone on the ferry, including crew, were shooting it. Wish I'd had my 17-40.

Your photo is good and documentary, Strykapose! The sad part is that many of those people lining up to shoot the sunset haven't seen a real sunset at a horizon without being surrounded by skyscrapers, nor without having a phone in front of them.
The funny part is that I bet a whole lot of them are using the flash... :)

Thank you DominoDude...So true. NYC is surrounded by skyscrapers with many more going up at any moment. It'll probably get to a point where the city will live in shadows...with the only light coming from tourist's camera flashes.

Thank you Graham,
I have asked myself the same question regarding the woman who turned around. BTW, There is no building behind me. She was actually taking a photo of us (huge group of photogs) who were on the other side of the street.
I'm not sure what was more exciting, the time when she turned and took her photo was when the Sun was at its perfectly centered spot, she could've turned anytime before or after, but Im definitely sure she didnt capture a perfectly centered henge.

Manhattanhenge Sunset

Good and funny/sad!
Your photo is good and documentary, Strykapose! The sad part is that many of those people lining up to shoot the sunset haven't seen a real sunset at a horizon without being surrounded by skyscrapers, nor without having a phone in front of them.
The funny part is that I bet a whole lot of them are using the flash... :)

Thank you DominoDude...So true. NYC is surrounded by skyscrapers with many more going up at any moment. It'll probably get to a point where the city will live in shadows...with the only light coming from tourist's camera flashes.

Looking at the other side of the coin.....I find this a refreshing sunset and it sets it apart from a lot of other "sunsets schmunsets" you see in the country or at the beach.The reflections from glass, steel and alloys, silhouettes of living and static objects, light, shadow, behaviour....all add to the mix.  So, not sure it is sad really....just the same drink from a different bottle.   The fact that is is unexpected makes it all the more enjoyable for me.  Living in (or close to....) London, I see some fantastic sunsets over the city which would not look half as good if I had seen it from the countryside or beach.  Although "good" is obviously to personal taste/preference for city/country living.

One thing I do hate though is when someone holds a bloody iPad up in front of your face obstructing your view.  There ought to be a switch that cuts off power as soon as it is raised above shoulder height.

Hi DiSnapper.
Nice shots, when striving for a seemingly unattainable item or target, I've been asked if I want the moon on a stick too, but never the sun. Particularly like this one.
I'm guessing you knew this shot would happen, kept checking for the correct situation, then on the day when it all came together you were sat there waiting?  ;D I won't believe you if you say you just spotted it the day you took it! ::)
Thanks for sharing

Cheers, Graham.

I think that sunsets are a subject that if you expose properly for, with lots of DR and shadow detail, suck! Photographed like yours is, there is a mood, a serenity.... it would be lost otherwise.

Thanks Don and Click. Don , you are right. Under exposure can be very effective in these types of scene. In fact I tried re doing my picture from Flatford Mill - Willie Lott's Cottage where Constable painted his most famous picture; 'The Hay Wain', using some lesser exposed frames, and I think it gives a picture with good atmos.  ( It is a sunset after all).

Yes it is a very beautiful, peaceful place and has been well preserved by National Trust. It's not that dissimilar now to how it was when Constable's father owned the mill. except that the pond where he painted the horses and cart - The Hay Wain - is now about two feet deeper than it was two hundred years ago because that part of England is sinking !

Nice image, Sporgon. Is that your neck of the woods, or are you a music tourist?

 ;D  Thanks Nancy, are you referring to Benjamin Britten ? No I don't live near there, I'm in the North of England, and I'm afraid that Benjamin Britten is about the last composer I would travel to either listen to or haunt his local. Hope he wasn't a relative of yours ! My dislike probably stems from doing a Britten opera at school, Noye's Fludde, and it was just - well, noise !

If you are familiar with Aldeburgh I did a few panoramics which have been lost to filing and never used, so I'll show them here for you. They are actually sunrises but still in the spirit of the thread. The stainless steel shell sculpture caused a lot of controversy with the locals apparently. It has cut into it some of the lyrics from Britten's Peter Grimes: " I hear those voices that will not be drowned". I presume it is a memorial to both Britten and those that have lost their lives at sea working out of the fishing town.

Many thanks Domino. Sorry I meant to reply to your kind comments about the Hay Wain picture. I'm pleased you like it because that lighting really appeals to me too. It is very different to the panoramic produced for National Trust, but then those pictures are really meant to show people the place and (hopefully) make them want to visit, rather than being 'artistic'.

Never made anything on the Aldeburgh pictures, but didn't expect to. Went there after Flatford. It's very difficult to make anything on landscape pictures unless they are specifically commissioned. Digital has inevitably devalued photography in a monitory sense, and raised expectations in an aesthetic sense.

And many thanks to rpt too !

But Sporgon's just have an ethereal quality to the sunset that make me warm and fuzzy inside (why in the world do I say that??? ;D), and I really want to go to my own sunset in that kind of scene! 8)
I'll try to learn to get this effect in my photos in the future, what an inspiration!

Nothing will spoil one's enjoyment like mandatory school performance.  :D  I am not familiar with that work. No, not a relative, just an opera buff with an interest in non-standard . Our local opera theater was run by an Englishman who had had some assistant conductor or other behind-scenes experience at the music festival, so he programmed several of the Britten operas in years in which we didn't have new commissions. Aldeborough is an obscure town, I can't imagine it has a lot of tourist trade other than the music festival.

Your photos really highlight this thread.  And I'm not slighting all the other contributors here.  All photos published here are great and wonderful.
But Sporgon's just have an ethereal quality to the sunset that make me warm and fuzzy inside (why in the world do I say that??? ;D), and I really want to go to my own sunset in that kind of scene! 8)
I'll try to learn to get this effect in my photos in the future, what an inspiration!
-r

Thanks Lion Rock.
Nice image, Sporgon. Is that your neck of the woods, or are you a music tourist?

 ;D  Thanks Nancy, are you referring to Benjamin Britten ? No I don't live near there, I'm in the North of England, and I'm afraid that Benjamin Britten is about the last composer I would travel to either listen to or haunt his local. Hope he wasn't a relative of yours ! My dislike probably stems from doing a Britten opera at school, Noye's Fludde, and it was just - well, noise !

If you are familiar with Aldeburgh I did a few panoramics which have been lost to filing and never used, so I'll show them here for you. They are actually sunrises but still in the spirit of the thread. The stainless steel shell sculpture caused a lot of controversy with the locals apparently. It has cut into it some of the lyrics from Britten's Peter Grimes: " I hear those voices that will not be drowned". I presume it is a memorial to both Britten and those that have lost their lives at sea working out of the fishing town.

You are outdoing yourself, Sporgon!
That shell is a true work of art. I hope you make money on shots like these - you deserve it.

Thanks Domino.

I got this effect by under exposing the sunrise and filling the steel shell with a touch of flash.

Hi Folks.
Not necessarily beautiful sunsets, but my attempt at them, the first two are different takes on the same place, the River Medina from the Folly Pub, the third is Fawley power station and refinery near Calshot, the fourth one is not a traditional view of a sunset, but sunset reflected from a field of recently planted solar panel bushes, I'm sure these things spread like brambles as they are popping up all over the place!  ;D
The Fawley shot might change soon as the power station is decommissioned and the chimney is said to be coming down soon.

I'm not a N.I.M.B.Y. (I live next to a gas turbine powered generating station and don't care) but I'd rather see wind or tide power than solar that goes off as the lights go on!

Cheers, Graham.

Very nice, not a technique one would expect to work, but I really like the shallow dof on the grasses or grain with the sunset as bokeh.

Thank you Graham, I always try to get this kind of shot where you have the grass in shallow dof and always end up using the widest aperture, but when I get home I regret not using a narrower aperture to get more dof on the grass, well...I need to keep trying :)

Hi Click.
Thank you for your feedback, the second one although it is a sunset is a pretty lame sunset, it was more about the cloud pattern. I'm pleased you like the first one, it has taken a while to get a good coloured sky. I almost missed this one but my partner was driving home, saw it and told me to meet her outside and she would drive me down the sea front for some pictures. Got to love supportive partners.

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Graham,

Very nice shots. I really like the first one. Beautiful sky.

Well done.

Many thanks to Click and Graham. I wish I could take credit for the sky :)

Here's one out in the country earlier this week.  I was actually carrying a crop sensor camera (70D) with the Tamron 24-70 VC mounted on it.


Lovely shot, Dustin.

Thanks, Click.  You are the most faithful person around here to give positive feedback to other photographers.  Appreciated!

Agreed!

Why, YES it is -- and you should hear the gripes of those people who bought their sky-highs not long ago who are now about to lose their beautiful views.  I've only lived here since January, but that's long enough to know there's a shortage of available, -especially affordable, housing here, and a big, big business building luxury digs along the oceanfront wherever developers can get permits...

My wife and I were invited to a destination wedding in Sedona last February. We had never been before so we ended up making it a 10 day trip with time split between Sedona and the South rim. I took this as a three shot HDR after the sun had set and all the other shutterbugs left.
The bonus was the five Mule Deer bucks we saw walking back to the rental car.

No prizes for guessing where this was taken... how will it look on your screen though?

I will say this: on my system, looking at it as a "preview" (part of the page) with Chrome looks completely different to after I click on it and it becomes something to scroll around.

What about you?

Here's a sunset I took, 5D3, TSE17, Lee Big Stopper. Was going to toss it because of the lens flares and partial halo (clouds blocked the left side of halo), but after boosting the saturation and adding in some vignetting, I didnt think it was too bad. What do you think?

Shot these for a water utility company in the UK called United Utilities.

All of Thirlmere Reservoir. Thirlmere is a reservoir is in the Borough of Allerdale in Cumbria, the English Lake District. It runs roughly south to north, with a dam at the northern end.

Thirlmere was constructed in the 19th century by the Manchester Corporation. It took four years to build the reservoir between 1890-94 to provide the burgeoning industrial city of Manchester with water supplies. It has a 96 mile aqueduct built between 1890-1925 still provides water to the Manchester area. It uses gravity to get to Manchester no pumps! Amazing!

All shot with 5DMKIII and 24-105mm with a 10 stop ND between 110-203 seconds.

(Didn't use my 16-35mm because my ND gets too close to the bulbous element and leaves a pink ghost in the centre..)

Thank you! No I have a Tiffen 10 stop ND which is not particularly brilliant it does give a cast but it added to the images in this case but if youve got quite a cold scene it is very hard to sort the temp.

It seems to do well in terms of sharpness tho can't really knock it there. But vignetting and cast aren't great. For some reason it won't play well with my 16-35 huge pink spot in the centre. Wonder if I put a slight extender on the filter to get it further away from the bulbous element that may solve it. Not sure.

First one from Rio, where I spent a few days in november last year, following a great photo trip to the Pantanal.

Second is a view of the rooftops including most of the towers of Copenhagen. The evening afterglow is often seen during the fall, and is not exaggerated in the picture.

The last image is also from Denmark, but a view of a park that used to be the royal hunting grounds. It is said that the building was used by the king and his men as a place to meet with their mistresses after the hunts. And in order not to be disturbed by the servants, the dining room had a table that would be lifted directly from the kitchen below like an elevator. The building is named after this clever principle, which in french is called "en ermitage"

Does a Sunrise shot count?

This is the Nanga Parbat. A 9th highest Peak on the Planet @ 26,660 ft.  Caught at Sunrise as the first rays of Sunlight kissed the top.

The preview has a weird color cast, clicking on the shot paints the proper colors.

That's a rather beautiful picture. Lovely tones to say it was such flat light in the foreground.

You have a keen eye Sporgon. This is an HDR, the foreground was dark and had to be over exposed (exposure compression was high); however the DR in the clouds and the peak was high enough to retain the tonal spectrum.  Thanks.

I'm partial to this image for a couple of reasons:  first, it's from a vintage lens that I love - the Zeiss Planar T*1.7/50mm.  Secondly, I'm very happy that I'm able to have full infinity focus thanks to an improved adapter from FotodioX Pro.  This is a wide open (f/1.7) shot taken a few nights ago:

Santorini Sunset...

Santorini is really one of the most beautiful Greek islands. I really enjoyed my holidays there last October. This time of year has proven ideal for a trip - half the number of tourists, less than 30° C and clouds that turned 'clear sky' sunsets into nice scenes.

Nice pictures. Love the second one the most.

That period is indeed very nice. Was 31 October till 6 November on a cruise in Mediterranean sea, visited also 2 Greece parts, Corfu and Argostolion. Those Greece islands are indeed really beautiful.

I was hoping for so much more today, but the low clouds on the horizon had other plans.

First outing with the Zeiss Batis 2/25 (on Sony A7R II). I don't see it replacing my 16-35 f/4L IS as primary landscape glass, but it's a nice piece of kit.

Hi Simon.
Really like the shot, in particular the sun being drawn up the vapour trail and the way it highlights the wingtip vortices. Ruined? Without that tanker it is just another lovely sunset, definitely not ruined.

Hi Kaswindell.
We have been 3 times, and each time we had at least 2 evenings with horizon to horizon sunsets this kind of colour, I think we were there in October each time. I should dig out some shots, but unfortunately they are only in camera JPEGs from my time before I knew any better!

Cheers, Graham.

Guess that I was lucky enough to get this photograph at the very first time of seeing this Horsetail Fall backlit moment during sunset, and one thing special about it which makes me remember it forever is it being photographed right on Ansel Adams' birthday (Feb 20) and right in his park...

From where I stood, I could not compose the horsetail falls with my 5D, hence, I used my 7D to allow me to reach more (200mm on my 7D)

Here's a photo I took in Slovenia way back in 2008. It's a three shot blend to get the contrast into the range of the camera. The sun however was perfectly placed by nature. I used a Tse 45mm for this shot and I just love the shape of the sunstar....it's got an old film "messianic" feel to it:

Hi GMC.
Lovely shot, I agree about the sunstar, a really good look.
By 'It's a three shot blend...etc' are you saying that it is an HDR blend or a panoramic blend? If it is HDR, nice job, so often HDR is so overdone and false but this looks quite natural.

Cheers, Graham.

Thank you. It's a set of three shot combined in photoshop. I took the 1st shot using the camera meter, then a an over exposed shot of 2 stops and an underexposed shot of two stops. Then I layered all three and blended them together. The result was a nice clean blend which looks very natural and very close to how I remember seeing this scene. This is an idea which I got from Guy Edwardes and a technique I use a lot when a landscape scene is beyond my camera's contrast range to record. This technique doesn't look to "effecty" or "fakey" if that makes sense, which to my eyes a lot of HDR processes do. 
Title: Re: Beautiful sunsets
Post by: Valvebounce on April 22, 2016, 09:43:54 AM
Hi GMC.
Thanks for clarifying the technique, I just re read my post and realised that I put "quite natural" which is open to interpretation, I didn't mean it as almost natural, as it looks how I would expect the scene to have lookedto the eye, with the exception of the sunstar.  :D

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Richard.
Very nice shots. As you used a 70-200 f2.8 II, is this is a stitched panorama, if so how many shots, landscape or portrait?

Cheers, Graham.

Graham, they are both stitched panos in LR. The first of three frames and the second of six. I tend to take them landscape when I am shooting with the 70-200 because I will have already decided to focus on a smaller range from top to bottom (beneath these there is just the restaurant and some unattractive trees!)

Thanks Click ! Love the old Takumar on the M3 but the much acclaimed EVF focus peaking feature is pretty useless. I have to magnify x5 then correct focus and take the shot, so I find the magnify facility the best part  of the EVF.

If sunrises count too, here is one from Sedona (Arizona, USA) a week ago. It is a panoramic composite of four vertical shots with the 100-400 L ii (at 100mm vertical). I actually did seven shots showing a second (larger formation) to the left, but it did not work out. The formation is too large and less distinct, resulting in a lot of black, and I could not get the middle section of it to line up properly. The auto panorama builder in PS Elements that usually does a great job could not use that piece either.

MrFotoFool,
I have used Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE), free offer, to assemble panos with better results than PS Automate.
I got a really cup-shaped pano from PS, whereas ICE gave me a more horizontal (ever so slight cupping) one.  Give it a try, if you're on Windows computer.

DominoDude, that's a nice shot/perspective.  I find myself wishing the grass were a little more dominant.

Thanks, Jack!
I see your point. As I remember it I was heading back to my car and didn't put a lot of thinking behind the composition. The straw grabbed my intention and gave me a point of focus, but my main interest was what kind of colours can I squeeze out of it if I underexpose a little. Afterwards I always get second thoughts and have hard time figuring out how to re-frame and crop a shot like this to make it interesting. I agree that it wouldn't hurt with a subject that were more dominant.

DominoDude, I offer my opinion as a person lacking any training in photography and in a sense it's just me wondering, primarily for my need to improve, what might help.  I like to hear what others think is right or wrong in my photos too and it's great when we can all share without feeling threatened.  Keep up the good work.

The Rhine shot is also my favorite. Those colors were just gorgeous. Luckily it was one of the three days I had rented the Otus :D
The Iceland shot is great but in hindsight I guess I could have made more out of it, but those were the days I hadn't yet started to shot raw..

Hi Click.
I was out at sunset to feed my herons and didn't think I'd get any shots, but took my 5D3 anyway. Got one nice photo of the resident juvenile heron at sunset, sitting on the concrete wall. Then I looked up and the sky was on fire. This was due to a heavy dose of VOG (volcanic smog) drifting over Oahu from Kilauea volcano on the Big Island (Hawaii island). This often makes for spectacular sunsets if the conditions are right. It always looks a lot better in person than in the camera.
Cheers,
Eric

A bit spontaneously, I decided to include a pair of surfers while shooting the sunset over the Imperial Beach pier. 

Beautiful shot, ERHP.  :)

Hi Larousejunior.
Lovely shot, great light. It is such a shame the view of this beautiful architecture (not just the basilica, but lots of the surrounding structures look interesting and impressive) is spoiled by a huge advert, looks like it must be approaching 40ft tall judging by the street lighting? Those companies using it should be ashamed.

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Larusejunior.
I must say I like your outlook, it's not far away, 1400km (and 13hrs by car)! Just a short trip!
We are visiting Paris this week, fly in Wednesday afternoon fly out Sunday lunchtime, we are going to the opening of Saturday Night Fever, something to do with Angela's job, then have some time to do the tourist bit, actually I have lots of spare time to do the tourist bit, Angela has to do some work! ;D
Apparently the drive from here including the ferry off the Island and tunnel to France is only half as far and only 7 hrs.

Cheers, Graham.

Thank you very much, but, honestly, it IS kind of difficult to NOT take nice sunset pictures here....

Here is a sunset or just after sunset over the Dead Sea.  This is looking from the Jordan side back toward Israel.  It was developed in Lightroom with no adjustments and taken with my 7D MII and 16-35 f/4 L.  I loved the patterns in the water from the different breezes blowing across the sea.

Thanks Click & lion rock.

I'm not very well versed in these type of shots and always wondering about what kind of post-processing to do.

In this case, I decided to keep the ground as mostly a silhouette and cropped top/bottom,  gave +1 contrast boost and applied the Landscape profile in DPP.
