Default Milford Lake Sunset

It was a beautiful autumn day in central Kansas and a nice sunset at Milford Lake near my home. A rare calm evening here!

I love the separation of colors in #3. Gorgeous.

I always thought you needed clouds to shoot spectacular sunsets. This is one series where I'm happy to be proven wrong . Great sunset shots!

I keep coming back to look at #3. It's just stunning.

Can you give more info on filters used and pp done? I would much appreciate it.

I have an Olympus E620 and the third photo in this series was just taken using the "sunset" mode on the camera. . I did not use any filters. For this shot the camera selected aperture 2.8, -7 exposure bias, ISO 200, 1/30 sec exposure.
The first photo I used aperture priority, aperture set at F10, ISO 200 and -3 exposure bias.
I did use the camera's articulating view screen for the third shot-I sat the camera on a flat rock on the ground and flipped the screen up and used live view to set the area to photograph and then used a wired remote to take the shot. I did a little brightening on the third photo and upped the contrast just a little for the first. Not a lot of post processing.
I'm glad you liked the pictures. I had great fun planning them--and the boat passing the setting sun was a lucky happening!

Haha! People are always putting down the scene modes but you have clearly succeeded with it in this case! I will probably continue to not use them but I may be tempted every now and then to mix in a scene shot with my 'M' and 'P' settings after seeing your results.
