Hilltop Sunset 3

Uploaded by: ChrisAnthemum

Thursday January 24, 2013

Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Found a new place today from which to shoot the sunset, in a pasture on top of a hill. Just about froze myself in the cold wind after climbing up, but the view to the west couldn't be beat! Had a hard time deciding which shots to post first!

Thank you, Duane and Wanda! Duane, every week I try to remind myself to check for WV selections in the middle of the day Monday, but almost always I forget, and so others get their congratulations in before me. This week it was Heidrun's turn to be first, LOL! I'm sure every congratulation is appreciated by the recipients.

Thank you, Gayle and Pam! It was one of the best sunsets I've seen in awhile, and I was fortunate to have a good vantage point. I was going to shoot it from one of my usual spots, when a neighbor drove by and stopped to tell me where there was a better place. His advice was right on the money!

Daniel, I never know how these are going to come out until I get to work on them. Usually my camera favors blues, pinks, and purples over golds and yellows, but by setting the exposure bias low enough, I can deepen the colors quite a bit even before editing to increase saturation. I sometimes tilt the color toward the red, but did not do that here. This image was taken early to midway through the sunset, the other shots a few minutes later. The later it got, the deeper the colors got (also the more blues and purples showed up), until I was able to leave some late shots completely unsaturated. This one was moderately so, which tended to bring up the golds. Yellow is the hardest color for me to control in my pictures. Thanks for your comment!

While I really like this image overall, I must say I really love the fact that your camera differentiates the oranges from the blues so well. Most cameras from what I have seen (and used) tend to either wash out the blue or redden it
