    Default Sunsets [new photos added 9/10/12]

    I've always liked photography but its just a hobby, if even that. But I do enjoy taking pictures. I dont have any high end stuff just a nice point-n-shoot. Here are some sunsets from around my house on one evening about a month ago. It really looked spectacular in person; the photographs captured only a percentage of that feel.

Size:  3.0 KB This one was pointed to the east, opposite sunset. The color was quite stunning in person, it appeared as though the forest was on fire. Sorry for the garage and my trucks and stuff in the picture.

    I also didnt have time yet to try and edit any, these are just straight off the camera.

    Sunsets are very special to me, I always try to go out and enjoy them for a few minutes. Of course they also stir up images from my favorite animes too! Lived in the city for 10 years (after growing up in the country) and forgot how nice they are, my views were always blocked by buildings and such, its nice now to be back in a rural setting and to have an unobstructed view to the west just looking out at fields with a background of woods.


    More pics added down the thread a ways...

    Pretty good stuff ^_^ And I like seeing that you keep the horizon in the lower third of the photo, instead of dead middle. My only real suggestion is to do the same thing with the setting sun, when you see it peeking out, move it to the left or to the right of the image. Or look for a good focal point, you want something in the image that will draw the eye to it.
    Looking forward to seeing more photos!

    Nice photos. I really love sunsets, but I don't know the true reason as ti why that is? The colors, perhaps? Maybe the way it can change your emotions? Either way, I like your photos and I use my call phone for most if not all my pics. Lol

    K. Ace thanks for the advice. I feel pretty experienced with the camera, controlling everything manually, but little tricks about scene composition I suck at lol. I'm on a few photagraphy forums as well (but not very much, mainly just for gear reviews and such) but I do pick up little bits of advice here and there.

    J Ladder... thank you. My cell phone takes terrible pics lol. My camera I have right now is a few years old Canon S5. Its served me pretty well I think. BTW I've built a few Jacob's Ladders, biggest one powered by 240V @ ~100A, and outputing 20kV. Not sure if thats what your username is from just thought I'd throw it out there.

    I was looking back through my photos and figured I'd post a few more sunsets, these are more of a standard sunset and from a couple years ago but still figured I'd include them:

    Thank you very much Lady Saphira, and Digimon. Perhaps point-n-shoot isnt the proper term as my camera is manually controllable. The distinction I guess I was trying to make is that it is a basic digicam and not a SLR. I would love to get a dSLR but even an entry grade one, when matched up with decent glass and accessories is still out of my budget as a hobby right now.

    However, I feel that the sun should shine just a little more, it dosen't have the wow factor for me personally. Stilll a nice piece overall.

    I'd have to disagree with you, Kyoshiro. It's not about how brightly the sun is shining, it's the colors that really make a sunset beautiful. Sometimes they're vibrant and sometimes they're soft and romantic. This one is very suttle and captures the last bit of daylight before it succumbs to darkness. It looks almost like fire to me.

    But all opinions are different. =)

    Honestly, I anticipated a comment like that, and I regret not mentioning that I acknowledge that this is a sunset and that my comment would become null and void because brighter suns might make the concept of a sunset contradict itself. But it's alright. In any event, thank you for defending T-Stew & your opinion.

    I know how does it feel to see sceneries like this with your own eyes, pictures are just not enough to show this viewing feast, and that's the reason why i don't take pictures like this

    @alisaallthat
    Thank you! And by the way, I'm from NY as well... northern NY... about 20 minutes from Watertown. Right between Lake Ontario and the Adirondacks, my favorite two places to be. Family is still up there, hopefully I'll be up in summer and climb a few more peaks. I didnt get to last year. It sucks being in Ohio lol. It will be my quest to take a sunset picture in the mountains and post it here. Its been many years since I was really into climbing and back then I had no camera. Now I am getting back into it, but live far away from the mountains.

    Great news a short while ago I finally did what I have wanted to do for a few years and upgraded to dSLR. Got a Canon 60D and some great glass to go with it. I really have a long ways to go to master the dSLR and I haven't got a lot of chances to shoot with it but on a trip to my home town in northern NY recently there was a nice sunset which I played with various camera settings. Here are a few of the ones I picked out. These are all of the same sunset, just with some different setting, zoom levels, and different times throughout the sunset. I'll link each to larger versions.

    8:27pm

    8:28pm
    Zoomed out. I like the dark ray cast by the pillar of cloud blocking the sun.

    8:29pm
    And zoomed in...

    8:30pm

    8:36pm
    The last bit of sun peaks through the trees.

    8:49pm

    Its amazing to me how fast things change in a sunset in just one or two minutes. And also how beautiful the sky is even after the sun is down out of view below the horizon. And @Kaitou Ace I'm still working on improving my composition with your suggestions, keeping the horizon low and trying to offset some of the main elements like the sun, pillar of clouds, and gap in the trees. Well I guess its still centered in a couple of them. But I'm working on it.

    Hope you enjoy them as I do!

    I just viewed my pictures from here at work on a really nice screen and I dont know if its the screen here but the last 6 pictures I just uploaded a few days ago looks like I over saturated the colors in them. If it looks that way then I appologize, I probably shouldnt be editing them on my old laptop with a crappy bland screen. I'm not going to go back and re edit them though.

    So I take it i'm not the only one who fancies sunsets :P Cool pictures, I especially like your last set, and this one: http://i903.photobucket.com/albums/a..._2018e1000.jpg is my favorite. I just love sunset colors.
    No Mercy,
    No Remorse.


    ||Thank you MaruDashi for the great set!||

    @Kanjoudakai_Ira Thanks very much! And good choice... its pretty close but I think that one is my favorite as well. Though the intensity of the sun isnt there, I prefer the after glow once the sun has set. I love just sitting there watching the glow fade to deep blue... Its almost sad some times when its gone and I have to go back inside!

    I've shot a few more sunsets recently, but nothing spectacular. This one is worth honorable mention I thought so I decided to include it. I was also playing with the camera a bit. I tried to adjust the settings a little different on the camera and not use any post processing. Its hard for me to do the editing anyhow since my laptop screen is so crappy. I can't tell the colors very well on it.

    So anyhow here are a few shots with no post processing. I bumped up the saturation on the camera 2 notches and down on the sharpness a couple notches. Shot in Program mode, auto white balance, and -2/3 exposure. The sun had already set so it wasnt very bright, figured I'd go with a more soft and subtle dark look.


    The sky was void of clouds except for a small patch of clouds near the sunset. I like how they turned wispy as they trailed upward.


    It was late enough that the sky above was already turning into darkness. I love the gradient here where the top just disappears into blackness. Wish the lens was a bit wider though to get a little bit more of the darker sky. And the dark background here on AF kind of diminishes the effect, oh well.


    And just a little longer and the colors fade deeper into reds as the brighter yellows fade away.
