About the Image(s)

I shot this photo on May 14th, one day that I braved being out of my house. This was at Titlow Beach in Tacoma, Washington and this was after the sun had set below the horizon.

I shot it at 24 mm on my Nikon Z7 mirrorless at 5 seconds at F22 and an ISO of 200. I was trying to smooth the water a bit. The colors were quite purple at the time, and 10 minutes later they were just bluish. I liked the purple. On a tripod of course.

I edited in Photoshop and Nik suite. I had to clone out something and fix the pilings a bit under the dock. This camera makes pretty intense colors, set at vivid landscape.

Nice capture of the sunset and beautiful colors. As a suggestion, I would crop out the pier on the left. This would enable the eye to better focus on the pilings that lead us into the image.   Posted: 06/11/2020 08:44:11

Nice job. I might play with PS out the deck on the right. However, I like the sunset and would just leave the deck if I couldn't remove it cleanly.   Posted: 06/25/2020 08:52:35

Very beautiful shot! The colors are wonderful. I like all the pylons. Your water looks nicely smooth. I have the same feelings about the deck on the left. Replacing it with more dimly glowing water would be nice. It would open up the water more.

I tried cropping the deck out and cropping a bit on the right for balance.

You are correct about the vivid colors. I'm going to keep that in mind when I'm ready for my first mirrorless camera.

The colors are beautiful. However, the my eyes need to adjust everytime I move from right to left or vice versa. Since I think the greatees interest in this image is in the pilings and the fence, I'd crop even more--see attached file.   Posted: 06/30/2020 04:31:30
