The sunbeams in the last 2 photos are fantastic:!::!::!:


Looks likea cloudburst with sunlight instead of rain:G.

Sunbeams are visible in the 2nd shot,butthe last 2 picturesare my personal favourites. Those 2 are simply beautiful:love:.


Keep it up, samcheri!

Yes these are very nice indeed, i try to do similar sometimes but somehow the images are never quite as good as what my eye sees!

Hi Sam,cool photos .I too have been shooting sunset photos with my Canon S1 But I am having problems with gremlins appearing in a lot of my favorite sunset shots.I am hopeful that canon will release a firmware update soon to fix this problem(emailed them the other day "early april " according to them.).


Canon S1-IS night portraight mode -1 flash exp and -1 exp comp I think

Here is another S1 sunset no gremlins this time thankfully!


samcheri Nov 24, 2004 8:18 AM

Nice gremlins, tho!!

The last one is my favourite; would be a good idea to post-process and de-noise them; makes them a great deal better and cleaner

Sivaram Velauthapillai Nov 24, 2004 10:14 AM

Anything with sun rays like that is cool :cool:

I really like the 2nd last pic by Samcheri. Very nice...

Are you using any filters, or is that straight out of the S1 IS?

samcheri Nov 25, 2004 2:37 PM

No flters; slight post-processing in zoom-browser (auto-enhance) and de-noised in


thanx for your comments

1 more pic available at

Sivaram Velauthapillai Nov 27, 2004 7:06 PM

Thoughts on Nicolas' pic...

I don't like it that much... the trees/bushes in the foreground cover everything and I don't like that... the colour in the sky (background) is nice but the foreground sucks...

Just my friendly criticism :D

If you use the Insert Image Icon ( on the toolbar above the post entry screen, you can use a URL from your albums. You can insert multiple photos in one post this way (this only works for links to external photos, not photos on your hard disk). Just use the same icon again for each image you want to post (and you can insert another one).

Make sure you end the link with .jpg

If you're not familiar with how handles direct linking, you can also specify a file size. Let's take an example:

This is a link to one of your Sunset photos:

You can then specify thedesired viewing size (making sure to end it with .jpg for it to work as a direct link). Here are examples of what you'd need to paste into the address field if you use the Insert Image Icon when making for either small, medium or large viewing sizes:

Here are examples of this image, embedded at different sizes:

I like your pics Lemondster... nice pics of sunrays and stuff like that...

I'm a newbie as far as cameras go, but I"m really getting into it. I like to take black and white, but also color, and your sunset pics are great. So, what's the trick? Any tips?

PS, the little pick under my name was taken by my phone camera. ;)

Basically, just looking for some advice, then I'll lay down some Hawaiian Sunsets!

lemondster Dec 1, 2004 12:48 PM

what camera do you have cause one i know that i can give you a few pointers hopefully

The previous pic is the best I have... some will like it; some won't... it looks as if it is processed in some editing program but it's straight out of the camera...

Here is my other one that is somewhat decent...

subliminal Dec 7, 2004 9:43 PM

What cameras are being used for these pictures? All I know is that they're Canons.


Sivaram Velauthapillai Dec 8, 2004 1:14 PM

Mine is Canon S1 IS...

Brendon Dec 8, 2004 6:02 PM
