Street Sunset

There was quite an impressive sunset last night. I couldn’t be anywhere that I could take any really nice shots so this one taken from my car by cell phone will have to do.

Sunset with traffic

We have had a lot of smoke in the air from bush fires for the past few weeks. I took this the other evening when the smoke was lending an orange hue to the setting sun.

Otherworldly Sunset

Sunset Over a Calm Sea

This was taken around the same time as Post-apocalyptic Sunset but this image is more true to what the eye saw. Two shots, exposed for foreground and background were merged with a layer mask in Elements, simulating the use of an ND gradient filter. Processing was then finished off in Lightroom.

To the eye, this was a gentle, pastel-coloured sunset but I wanted to come up with something more punchy.

This was shot auto-bracketed (+/- 2EV). The frames were enfused to a single image with improved dynamic range and this image was then processed in Lightroom.

The sunset last night was rather dramatic. Shot from my back yard.
