Default Montana sunset

This is from my first attempt at doing sunsets with my camera mounted on a tripod. I still need a lot of practise but here are two of the better shots.

#1 is stunning...very nice lighting and great composition! Where in Montana is this location? #2 seems a underxposed...might have been a good candidate for HDR.

I was on a hill about 5 miles east of town overlooking Helena MT. I aimed the camera in the oposite direction of town for the mountain shot. Here is a shot looking in the diresction of Helena. You can see part of the city by the base of the mountains by the sun burst.

Nice photos. I processed this pick with Martin's AutoHDR and corrected noise and sharpness with Neat Image plug-in (may be a little too much...). Let's see if you like it:

I was just looking at martins HDR program. I like how it lightened up everything. I will have to keep playing with that pic some more.

The very first picture is the one that did it for me. The beautiful colors in the sky and the golden land in the foreground just help nail the composition. The colors aren't exaggerated which is what i love the most.

I like the sweeping curve of colour in the first shot. Warm colours but it still looks cold. Must have been a pleasure to really have been there!
