Manila Bay. The pollution creates vivid sunset colours, and also really dims the sun when it's on the horizon to be much dimmer than the sky above - hence the lack of reflection.


Great shot.  8) Well done.

Seriously, none of these qualify as "sky on fire".


Since I'm saying that, I suppose I should post something that I liken more to "sky on fire".

Attached is something that I'd consider closer to "sky on fire" but even then, it is just an "auto-tone" out of Lightroom (no crop or manual saturation, etc, changes)  but even then, there may be a couple of better ones I've got.

Well, if attachments work... :/

My Samsung Galaxy S4 takes better picture than that :P
ML: A7R II & A7s -- FE35f1.4 -- FE35f2.8 -- FE55 -- FE85GM -- FE2470GM -- FE70200GM
DSLR: 1Dx + 200L f2 IS  -- sadly replaced this combo with a7s + 70200GM

Here's a bit of a fun picture; the memorial shell sculpture on the beach at Adleburgh in Eastern England.

It's made of about eight tonnes of stainless steel and when we came across it we thought it was in memorial to those lost at sea, as it has cut into it 'I hear those voices that will not be drowned'. In fact it is a memorial to the English composer Benjamin Britten, one of relatively modern times, and who's music I have to admit I found pretty dire. By all accounts it is pretty unpopular at Aldeburgh.

Anyway I liked it, so here it is on a three frame panoramic with the 5DII and 40mm pancake plus a touch of fill from 430EX. Shot just as the sun rose above the horizon, and underexposed for effect.

Did this pan a couple years ago. Can't remember how many shots exactly, but I'll say probably around 6. This thread is rough on me, wish I was there now! :)

Beautiful shots Richard!

The first and third have an impressive light and detail in the foreground. Did you use any filters? Reason I am asking is that I will on the new year start off with the Lee system.

Sorry, took me a while to get back. Yes I did use filters, a combination of a Lee CPL and soft grads on the first two (the mountains prevented me using the Singh-Ray Revers Grad), it was a challenge with the mountains though and a blend would proably have been easier, but the challenge was too much of a temptation. The other was taken a few years ago, using the Cokin P system; that was a combination of the Singh-Ray LB Warming Polarizer and the 3 stop Singh-Ray Reverse Grad. I also used a touch of HDR on the third, just to recover the detail in the reflection.
