Wow!! No edits? I'm impressed! What settings do you use? Iso? shutter? ND filter? I have the hardest time with sunsets/sunrises.. Tips please!!
- 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.
