Just another sunset
1

Actually from three years ago.  But I've always liked this shot.

Taken with 40d & 15-85 hand held.

ISO: 800
Exposure: 1/200 sec
Aperture: 9.0
Focal Length: 15mm

Looking at the numbers it appears I was in Program mode when I took this shot.

i like this shot, it looks almost like an oil painting on my screen! i am wondering what a FF camera with high ISO capability such as 5DIII or 1Dx would have done just curious!

this a nice angle you have picked for this shot. everything looks nice, just curious: is that oil slick on the sand?

Thanks.  It was much darker than can be seen here, so it was hard to see.  I am pretty sure it is not oil, but rather the sand colorations may be due to errosion from the cliffs nearby that have an orange/brown tint - I am guessing from oxidized iron mineral in the sand & rocks?

The angle/framing of this shot is wonderful.  That combined with the colors makes it work really well.  Then you throw in the sun.  Wow!!!  Great capture.

Very nicely done.  But I would be tempted to crop it as a square removing the sea from the sides and only showing those wonderful posts.

Beautiful light and nice framing.  I particularly like the water in this one.

Re: Smokey Mountains

Got to love those mountains.  Great capture and you did not over saturate which is always tempting with shots like that.

Re: California Fog

Fog can be fun and challenging to photograph.  I really like the second.

Iceland waterfalls

Thought having a person in photo would give a perspective of the height of the falls

Couldn't keep the lens dry in the all day rain.   Do rain covers really work?

Children's Waterfall - series of cascading pools

Lava Waterfalls

Did I go too wide here and lose the detail of watercoming through the frozen lava field?

Re: Iceland waterfalls - Moved closer

Sorry- haven't figured out how to edit my posts yet, so just replied.

Same falls as before but fond a path to get closer.  Which of the two shots has better composition?

Southern coast near Vic

How could I have captured this scene better? Using a Sigma 10-20.
