End of the Day

I love it when the sun goes below the horizon.

PS - yesterday's photograph prints quite well on a fine art paper which mutes the intensity of the colors a bit. I did need to use the Perceptual rather than the Relative setting. However, at 12:30 pm, PT, yesterday, I did go back and reduce the intensity of the reds and oranges around the sun. Any further lowering of intensity would have been unfaithful to the way that it looked.

How it looks, right here, is stunning. The sun, when it is below the horizon for either dawn or sunset, is the true sweet spot for shots like this superb frame.

Achingly beautiful. These are the lyrics that come into my mind when I see this image:
"Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh." (Taps)

Harry from United States

A lovely sky and the darker/bluer rocks and sea give it a more realistic look (IMHO).

18 Feb 2011 7:28pm

@Harry: no sun to get in the way. i printed yesterday's shot on Hahnemuhle Smooth Fine Art paper (which mutes the colors) and everything looks perfect to my eye
