lol, you live in Florida and you're wishing for my scenery??
Um, ocean? Waves crashing on rocks? I hope to get to capture THAT someday ...
I guess we all wish for different scenery sometimes. But to tell the truth I was pretty excited when I saw this one. Thanks for your comment.
I like that one Tori. Very nice. :)
i love 90% of that frame. the water/ pebbles and colour on the foliage to the right of frame i awesome.
i have no issues with sunflare or even direct sun shots. but imo the sun flare is just a little too strong in this one.
I can understand that, Rooz. Unfortunately I had to take what I could get, 4 seconds with the sun in the frame was a long time! It was a tradeoff with the lighting and the silkiness of the water. But thanks for your comment, when are you going to do some landscapes? :D
edit: I didn't mean that snidely, I do appreciate your comment, I sincerely hope you do some landscapes soon too, it's about time your sensor sees something without eyes :D
why dont i do landscapes ? cos i suck at it. lol
Just picked up a couple of flashes and Ebay triggers. Haven't had much time to play but here I am! ;)
fantastic. thats your first shot ? sheesh.
you pricks learn too fast. :p
LOL! Thanks Rooz. Yes, it was my first outing. Shot at night on my back porch.

It took me several attempts, since if I metered for the foreground it would wash out the background, or if I metered for the sunset then it would ruin the foreground. This is the best I could come up with. I put it on my flickr and have had mixed reviews, some feel the foreground is too underexposed while others feel it is well balanced. C&C are more than welcome!
Turo, I didn't even realize you were a DCRP'er when I commented on your shot :)
I got similar comments on flickr about parts of the photo being underexposed. But IMO both our pictures benefit from the contrast in lighting.
And with a shot like THAT, you're still wishing for Wyoming scenery ??? lol
