Sunflower Sunset Silhouettes

Uploaded by: HarveyCreek

Friday August 9, 2013

Dundee, OR (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: The overcast from a pop-up thundershower and smoke from forest fires in the state combined with the sunset to created a glowing nearly surrealistic sky. I combined this with some of the sunflowers surrounding my vegetable garden and with the silhouettes of fir trees.

Swreader, I agree, this was my favorite of the bunch as well, as I was trying to get the silhouettes more defined in the picture. Even though I bumped up the ISO and set the aperture to a f/10.0 setting to increase the depth of field, the trees were still out of the range of focus.

These are all beautiful (the afterglow of sun and smoke sometimes makes beauty). But I think that this shot is the best of the three--it's better balanced and the use of the silhouettes is brilliant. No one element is too strong, and I prefer the slightly smaller (but more) sunflowers. Nonetheless, congrats on the AC.
