Default Warm Sunset

Hello all,

Took these two tonight as the sun was setting. Should have stuck around longer to catch the amazing colors that filled the sky but other things took priority. Did manage to get these two before i had to leave though.

The third photo was taken a couple weeks ago. Didn't have my Canon on me, but my android phone has a 5 megapixel camera built in so i figured i could give it a shot. The Color balance and contrast was edited using Adobe Photoshop Express for android

Thank for looking

-Travis-

Walter,

I gave topaz a shot and i think i found a new favorite program.

The original HDR is posted first then the topaz adjusted one.

Comments welcome.

The last time I owned a phone with camera was when they came in 1 megapixel -- I didn't use it. Your phone camera takes awesome pictures.

For the last two shots, I'm not 100% sure but there may be ghosting on the clouds -- across 5 frames maybe? I'm not sure because the ghosting pattern (can't think of a better word to describe other than "choppies") appear only on the bulky clouds in front, and not on the little ones on top and below. Maybe it's just the clouds formed that way.

But if in case they are indeed ghosting, (and in case you haven't tried this yet) you can cut out the foreground from the HDR image (I use Topaz Remask) and paste it on the shot with the best-looking clouds. I know it's more work but doing so also gives you the flexibility of using different presets for the sky and foreground. You might get results similar to the one you are expecting without the ghosting.

But like I said, it might not be ghosting. I've taken pictures of "choppy" clouds, too. All very nice sunset pics.
