Nice Shot, did you use a ND filter? Tripod?

I take it you don't approve of the post-processing?  We all have different ideas of what we want.  It looks pleasant enough to me, but my guess is that it was warmed up to enhance the color of the sunset, at the expense of the other colors.  It probably looks better than a more "natural" look.

Dear Gary,

what i worry about is why you chose this color?

In LR or photoshop it is so easy to get an image all into the blues, the pinks, the greens, the purples, reds, …  etc. And if one wants to change the world, why brown? Why not silver or gold? I know this is your artistic decision, totally yours.

I guess i would have liked you to try a few more overpped hues and make sure this is the one that is proper for the image, your mood of the day and your artistic view of the worlds.

The  more color deviations, the merrier …, the more outlandish the better, I think.

Or keep it earthly and natural, with a little bit of help from pp.

Very nice Jorge.  The shot and the PP treatment is appealing.

In my opinion the PP is what makes this an outstanding image.

I didn't.

I might have gone for more colorful tones, if it were mine.  However, I can't say that this combinatin is invalid.  I don't see where it's written down that all photographs must be vivid with purples, greens, and reds, etc. It seems like an artistic choice.

I have a photographic print hanging on the wall that is mostly orange from the sunset and other areas are dark and muted. I imagine this came from film but I don't know what kind of processing it had. We are fortunate to have more, or at least easier, options these days.

I guess i would have liked you to try a few more overpped hues and make sure this is the one that is proper for the image, your mood of the day and your artistic view of the worlds.

I agree that I'll tend to keep it natural or go crazy with it. Inbetween just seems undecided.

i live near the beach, i've taken quite a few pier shots... the problem with this photo is not the color as much as it is the low-hanging cloud structure that's blocking the red in the sky... same thing with those low clouds right on the horizon, i wouldn't even bring the camera out for a sunset like this... big high fluffy thunderheads and clean air to the horizon is what you want, and that's hard to find at so cal beaches.

imho, jorge basically took lousy conditions and made something unique and rather interesting with it... if the clouds had stayed gray, instead of all that brown, it would have been a rather flat photo.

thanks for the post, it's new perspective for me.

The processing is ok. What hurts the photo is the composition as he placed the end of the pier, dead-center of the frame and the horizon is tilted to the left.

I was at Pier 60 thirty years ago and wonder what it looks like today. I still do not know what it would look like. Can you post original?
