sunset

I try to notice every day what the clouds look like around sunset time.  I keep hoping I’ll get another opportunity like the one I had back in January when I took this photo at the lake in our neighborhood.

Yesterday evening I looked out the window and saw some interesting clouds so I hurried to the lake and this is what found.

iso 500, f/4.0, ss 1/2500

clean edit (just adjusted the levels a bit and cloned out the two towers)

with the pw sunshine action applied at 60%

I think I like the one with the sunshine added, but Gary liked the original best.

  7. I do like the original but the enhanced colors in the second one are really pretty. I always love the bright colors in a sunset.
