September 2021 - Last Light

About the Image(s)

Panasonic DC-G9 1/250 second F/4.0 ISO 200 116 mm

A scenic sunset from the top of Mount Scott in Oklahoma. I liked this old dead tree and got several different images of it. The exposure was a bit tough to not blow out the sunset sky but keep some detail in the foreground.

I have a few other versions including one I posted on my website

Interesting shot - nice tree, and as per the title, you caught it at the very last moment. My eyes are drawn to the sunset and the last light in the sky. Can't easily make out the details in the foreground... Wonder if cropping out some of the right side might help? The details in the left branch are sharp (closer to the sunset) - the ones on the right a bit less so... Would be hesitant to try and brighten the foreground much.   Posted: 09/01/2021 22:32:42

I love the sky in this one, but prefer the details in the tree on your web site, if they are from the same image (or something very similar) then can you copy the web version using shift to keep it in register, and mask off the sky so as to get the best of both images?

I also would crop of the right to make this a square, bringing the tree more on a third.

Jason, I'm struggling with this one. I definitely like the version on your web page better, with more of the tree showing and the tree not dead center. I think the vertical works better for you, too. This type of photo work best shot in bracketing, did you happen to catch some in focus trees where you can merge?

Glad to know there are cool places to shoot in Oklahoma, I've not spent much time there.

Very nice image but I suggest cropping off most of the right half leaving just the main areas of interest.   Posted: 09/23/2021 05:55:40
