:-)I got my K-10D a few weeks ago, and on the weekend of Jan. 20 made some images of sunset, framed by huge oak trees.

I used spot metering to get the sky exposed properly. Some were on tripod, and some were hand-held at 1/10 second, taking advantage of the IS.

Comments welcome!

Thanks for the comment - my first time posting, so I'll be able to fix that in the future!

Welcome to the forum. I really like that second shot. Beautiful colors in the fading light. I think I'd like to see a bit more of the tree silhouette.

Welcome - it's nice to see another Californian (there are several of us).

These are really nice, though I, too, would like to see them bigger. I use 700 pixels wide as a standard since then you don't have to scroll from side to side. I love the colors of the second one, thoughI like the framing of the first.

Hi Fellow Californian,

Thanks for the comments!

Could you please enlighten me on how to make the image 7-800 pixels wide? I opened them in Photoshp Elements and tried to make them that wide, but even at 72 dpi they ended up way over the 250kb limit for the site.

:?Thanks for any insight you can provide.
