Schoodic Sunset by Glenn Rudd

May 2021 - Schoodic Sunset

About the Image(s)

I participated in a photography workshop at Acadia National Park in 2019. This location on the Schoodic Peninsula was chosen for one of our sunset photo shoots. Although there were no dramatic clouds, the trees and rocky, textured foreground provide a nice point of interest. I shot in HDR bracketing shutter speed in 2 stop increments.
Technical: HDR, f/5, ISO100, 14mm.

Great location for this photo shoot. I like the lead in from the rocks and the way the sunset if held between the trees. HDR effect has heightened some of the colours in the rocks and vegetation which look a little unnatural, unless that's how they were. Would like to see this without the HDR effect if that was possible.   Posted: 05/05/2021 04:44:44

Great place for photography - been there several times.

I do like your perspective here - great lead into the middle and background areas, Glenn. Impressive sky as well! Is there a vignette applied? There seems to be a darker area to the left of the tall evergreen. I'm with Peter again on the green foliage, it appears a little too saturated. Simple fix, if that's the way you wanted it.   Posted: 05/05/2021 08:00:04

The thing that attacked my eye is the pine tree on the left. Seemed in post production I you may of created a halo which can be corrected.

The photo invites you to walk along it towards the sunset. Really nice!   Posted: 05/07/2021 19:24:22

Great Composition, perhaps crop a little at the bottom up to the line of shrubs on the left so that the rocks don't dominate the scene as much - the colors are highly saturated, but if that is what you like, why not. I agree with Joe N about the halo effect.   Posted: 05/08/2021 13:38:05

I like the location and the viewpoint you have chosen. The HDR has given a punch to the foreground, and as others have said a bit to much on the vegetation. Did the vignette result from the wide angle of the lens.   Posted: 05/13/2021 06:39:59

Thanks for all the helpful comments. I agree the vegetation is a little over- saturated. I applied the vignette in post-processing. If I use this image in competition, I will take all of these observations into consideration.   Posted: 05/13/2021 09:21:05
