Sunset over the 16th Hole by Susan Pellegrino

July 2024 - Sunset over the 16th Hole

About the Image(s)

I tried a few experiments with this. I took the photo and figured I could edit to get the lighting right. All my edits looked over-processed and I didn’t like the look of some little green marker next to the sand trap so I tried remove on Mobile Lightroom and it removes it with AI. First time I used that. Then, rather than adjusting the lighting, I hit “auto.” Not sure how I feel about all that.

The end result has a well balanced exposure, Sue. We're able to appreciate the sky at sunset and still have a properly exposed scene.

Note: we had an issue getting the original posted, and I'm traveling now for the holiday but will get in posted within the week, as it is helpful for comparison.   Posted: 07/03/2024 16:59:45

Nice image - well exposed. Each sunset is unique. Regarding the color - it looks to me a bit over-processed (of course, only you know what it really looked like). It could be the cell phone camera - which tends to render images even more brilliant than they appear in reality (perhaps because that's what manufacturers people like) - or your processing in LR. Did you know that after you hit Auto in LR - you can see what it did to all the basic sliders - and then tweak them further. Auto is often a jump start - and from there you can more easily adjust everything.   Posted: 07/07/2024 07:45:31

Thanks. First time using auto in LR. I'll have to play around with it.

The grass was a pretty vibrant green to my eye so I was excited to see the auto adjustment. I'm going to have to capture a similar image to get a better sense of how brilliant the colors are when I view in real life.   Posted: 07/07/2024 08:13:25
