October 2019 - Astorian Sunset

About the Image(s)

Nikon D750, iso/280, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/1500.

A sunset from the south jetty of the Columbia River. The photo was a bit flat so I used the graduated filter on the foreground for definition and tried to accent the sun rays coming down from the clouds. The upper 1/2 I used quite a few adjustments but the shadow filter helped out the most. Reduced shadows helped with some pop for the clouds.

Thank you for your panoramic view of sunset. I notice you well managed the light and contrast. Although various ranges of cloud occupies approximately sixty percentage of composition, satisfaction is in the cloud and cloud tray.   Posted: 10/12/2019 09:56:35

There is a storm on the bottom half and a breaking of the storm on the top. So it works for me in that it's an interesting moment in that sky.   Posted: 10/13/2019 07:18:05

Interesting sky with a lot of action but I don't think it is enough to carry the image without something else such as a
light area in the water or a localized shower coming down from a part of the dark clouds.   Posted: 10/15/2019 16:45:16
