Favorite Photo of the Week: Spring Sunset at Clark Lake Park 3.8.12

This week, it was again difficult to pick a favorite photo. I had the opportunity to shoot an amazing sunset in the middle of the work week. And when it comes to sunsets, if you follow along, you know that I can't get enough of them. This means that when I have a week devoted to sunset pictures, I find it nearly impossible to pick just one. However, there was something about this one that spoke to me. For one, I really thought about the angle of this shot and the composition and framing with the purpose of using the lines of the dock to highlight the focal point of the photo, the sunset. This left me feeling accomplished as it is something I was working after being critiqued at Click it Up a Notch. I also love how it turned out and that it is SOOC, which always leave me feeling pride in my work. I also chose this photo as the theme for P52 this week is "Eyes of March." This was the perfect sight to behold as March began. I would love to know your thoughts on this photo. Thank you for stopping by!

Settings: ISO 200, 18mm, ss1/200, f/11 (sunlight wb, SOOC)
Intention: The lines of the dock pointing to the sunset
