Default A brilliant sunset

The Arizona desert is hard to beat for sunsets. I took these photos on November 28.

I can't decide whether the foreground objects are bad or good. On one hand, they're somewhat distracting and less-than-pretty, but on the other hand, they give the photos a context. How interesting would a picture be if it was nothing but sky? Either way, I couldn't avoid including them while still getting the best part of the sky in the picture. At least, not from this vantage point.





Daylight white balance, centerweighted metering. The colors are straight-from-camera. These are perhaps the most brilliant colors I've ever captured in a photo.

Hey, I saw that one

Nice! Man, I love Arizona. Here are a few I have taken after hunts the last few weeks:







Three different days, three nice sunsets!

I like the foreground for the reason you stated but I would clone out the antennae & power lines--- trees are cool :!: :!:
This image had all kinds of powerline trash I cloned out

I'd have to agree with John. The trees are cool and add to the picture, but the power lines are distracting. Overall though, I really like the pictures. Your camera did an excellent job of capturing the colors

I prefer the "real" picture. I live in Houston....no mountains...no lakes...but we shure have the powerlines! Your pictures show a true perspective....I like it.

I could probably clone out the street light and the power lines in the first picture, but not in the second. It's too big, and the sky behind it is too dyanmic.

(Watch... now Kex or KlausDK will come along and prove me wrong... )

I like the photos as they are, I think you are right when you say the foreground objects give the images context, especially so in the first one. Great colours in both shots.
