Photography at sunset

Post by Onslow »

A group of Adelaide based photographers visited our Whyalla camera club a yr or so ago. We took them to various locations. They were particularly taken with Wild Dog Hill. Whilst they were concentrating on the sunset, I was watching them and the sky behind them...

Cheers Tom.
I was interested watching the photographers watching the sun go dow. None were paying attention to what was going on behind them. I've had this one printed large at around 40"x60". It came up beautifully. Even when I have printed on my 24" Epson, it still comes up a treat...
I've done variations without the cars and a few other things. I ran them past members of my photo group as an exercise in assessing images. 80 to 90 percent preferred the image with the cars in as they thought it contributed to the story. I tend to agree. As I said to Duck in another post, I tend not to add/remove things in my landscapes. Portraits though is a differrent matter...

Gorgeous light and how fun to see your mates all intent on their own photography. Also a great reminder to always look behind us when photographing sunsets :)

Well, technically, this can be considered a portrait. After all, the main subject are the people.

I absolutely LOVE the colors in the sky. Really amazing. I just wish your watermark didn't interfere with the main subject. Perhaps switching it to the other side?

I'd like to remove the cars, but otherwise it's a great catch. Thank you for sharing! S-
