Sunset at Mount Rainier by Peter Cheung

September 2021 - Sunset at Mount Rainier

About the Image(s)

The photo was taken last week when I hiked the Mount Fremont Lookout trail in Mount Rainier National Park. The hiking trail is not too long, only 5.6 miles round trip, but with a stunning sunset views of Mt. Rainier. The camera settings are Nikon D850, Nikon 18-35mm, 1/8 sec, ISO-64, 18mm, f/18. I used a small aperture in order to capture sun rays. In post-processing, I brightened up the shadow and increased the color temperature a little bit.

Peter, stunning image. The sun ray is perfect and immediately draws your eye.The colors are blended beautifully with foreground and background. Very nice capture.   Posted: 09/12/2021 10:31:12

Very beautiful image, nicely composed and aptly availed of the golden hour. Did well by capturing it in slow shutter speed.   Posted: 09/17/2021 08:34:12

Wonderful image. I really like what you did with the sun rays. I wonder if a little dehaze would make this even better.   Posted: 09/18/2021 14:16:22

Beautiful and well crafted! Following Howard's comments about panoramic format for my image, cropping out the foreground heightens the impact IMO.   Posted: 09/18/2021 15:22:48

Very nice. I will go with Howard on the dehaze idea I also found the lower left foreground distracting   Posted: 09/20/2021 12:52:27
