    2 shots...and i'm not even part of the clique !!
    the sigma one is on a tripod
    the VR one is handheld leaning against a post.
    Ap Priority
    "More Vivid" cam setting
    RAW resized for web.

    unfortunately i didn;t have time to get in the car to go somewhere where i could get a better shot without the distracting foreground. what a shame cos these are the best sunsets i have ever captured from a colours POV.

    Wow, amazing colours. I think you just earned your clique membership

    The foreground is not too bad IMO, I kind of like the silhouetted trees. Incidentally, the sky would have been great for HDR, too.

    Great shot Rooz, I would think that the foreground was essential, IMO. it adds a sense of place and serves as a dramatic contrast to the colors of the sky.

    There is a new clique forming... It is the HDR snobs clique!

    It would be interesting to see HDR BUT - Not real sure that it would help the image any. The shadows are clipped, but that clipping is what creates the - IMO - fantastic silhouette.

    That is really where the extra stops are missing from the scene in my judgement.

    of course, just my viewpoint, not necessarily law.

    No, I didn't mean HDR with the foreground in this picture. In this picture the clipped shadows indeed work great. HDR with this composition would only have added distracting, useless detail.

    However, what I meant to say was that if Rooz would have had time to find an interesting foreground an HDR would have been great.

    ahhh, that makes more sense... Silly me. Assuming that the local HDR KING was trying to recruit more people to his new clan.

    As jcon mentioned it IS good to be having a little fun around here again.

    My clan is more than just HDR . No need to make HDRs to become a member. Once you get that remote control you mentioned in the other thread which automatically posts your pictures to the Picture of the Day thread you can be a member too .

    Yes, I agree, its good having some fun here again.

    And for those who think the fun is just spam I combine this post with my picture of the day, taken in Delft.

    naw at that point it will be auto-posting to the D200 SNOBS Thread that I'll have to start.

    Nice shot AGAIN... That one looks good (even without HDR) - you could probably pull more out from under the bridge, and get some more saturated skies with HDR... LOL!

    Thanks.
    Yes, I know, I could have made a HDR here too. But I had shot pictures for 8 HDRs before that (I think I posted about half somewhere on this forum) and a lot of regular pictures, so I was getting lazy

    Rooz - those are spectacular and I like the foreground!

    I guess I better stop taking pics of my kids and get some nice HDR landscape/scenery shots to be part of the clique.
