  #123 Best of the Challenge Period
Entry 13 of 36
   
 
dimming of the day       ©2013 elliott
Olympus E-620       13th place, 72 points
1/5s, f5.6, ISO 100, ?, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: resize       Extra Info: find myself cropping most of my landscape photos to a ratio close to this one so they fit screen better when viewing and i tend to like a wide view. so recently i set the camera to capture at 16x9 and do away with cropping (and a full raw file is still captured in case i decide i want to dink with the framing).
a colorful sunset brings out the neighbors and good conversations at the end of the day.

    Time to come out of the closet - I LOVE sunsets and sunrises even more. However they need to be more than the cliche shot of the sun and a horizon. I loved this one at first glance but then noticed the slight tilt which is distracting. I'm also not convinced the position of the people, the sign and the dock is the best but there are probably movement constraints that affect this. As for the sunset - I'd watch it till it was dark and then some.

    thanks for taking a look and commenting. had reservations about putting in a scene like this as i know a few of you are not fond of sunsets. i had not had the camera out much lately and nothing really in mind for the challenge but this one looked like something to share.
it is a conundrum... often when others are there i wish they weren't.... when i'm alone down there all i can think is i wish there others there to share the view.
there is enough bring out the wooden dock and people a bit more but at the same time it lightened the clouds more than i liked so i stayed with the unedited version.
thanks again for commenting.

    Wonderful colour and the facts that the silhouettes are not totally black helps this become more realistic and less of an everyday sunset.

    Wow what a sky and the reflection is very cool. I think I would have talked to the folks and positioned them a bit differently. But wow what a beautiful sky!

    Nice to have the opportunity to capture a scene like that and to share it with friends

    Firey! I sort of like it and given I really dislike sunset shots that really is meant as a positive comment.
