About the Image(s)

Nikon D500; 16-80 mm lens; 80mm focal length; f/16; 1/200 second; ISO 160

Upon a visit to my favorite lake I found a beautiful sunset. I liked the warm peachy tones against the cool blue sky.

Good timing, it looks like the sun just went below the horizon lighting the clouds without blowing things out. You used the trees in silhouette to frame the sunset. I think you did the best you could to find a foreground for the shot. The framing adds a lot.   Posted: 01/07/2022 21:32:54

Hi Barbara,

This is a lovely sunset image.

I like the way you framed the shot between the 2 trees. The sky & cloud colors are very good.

I wonder if shooting at F8 might have also helped if the focus was on the sky and deemphasizing the details on the trees?

Barbara - beautiful sunset with your framing enhancing the image. The cloud shapes are interesting on their own.   Posted: 01/12/2022 10:34:17

I like the lighting on the clouds and the inclusion of the silhouetted trees both foreground and background. For me it just needs something (not sure what) to give it that bit extra.   Posted: 01/19/2022 05:04:58
