NeonSunset

by Wildwood512

Sunset last night taken from my kitchen deck. The colors were that intense and gorgeous!!!! Ever so slight color tweek, exposure, contrast and sharpening done in Lightroom.

K5IIs + Sigma's newest 18 -200 Contemporary. Taken at 63mm at 5.6 and 1/15 sec. at 1600 ISO...hand held, braced on deck rail (sun was going down fast and I didn't want to miss this by setting up a tripod). Photos had some obvious blur, but took care of it to my liking in pp.

I I so badly wanted to do a full blown water color effect on this photo, but I refrained and kept it to nearly the way I experienced it!

Really like the hot colours at the bottom turning to cold at the top. Good use of the belt of trees. Cracking photograph.

Gorgeous colours, Donna. And the silhouetted trees really add to the effect. What a super view to look out on from a kitchen. Still no snow, I take it. (Could do with it being colder in Green Bay this weekend, the Cowboys don't like it up them!)

We've only had one slight frost so far to clobber the dahlias and daytime temperatures in the mid teens (centigrade).
Best wishes,

Andrew

Handheld at 1/16th sec with the lens at 63mm....very impressive even when braced against a rail.

Thanks everyone! Wish I could have shared the actual sunset with you all...on my deck with a glass of wine, all of us shooting our own versions. It's a nice thought, no?

Cheers 🍷
Cheers...Donna 😊

What a great image, Donna ......

In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"


I couldn't have put it better than William Blake !

Sounds good to me as well! How about chartering a plane for us all to join you?

Anyway - to the image; nice one!

Another great shot.
View from my house is just a really high wall of conifers robbing all the light and effects such as these...
Cheers,
