This photo was taken on the Long Beach Peninsula during an amazing sunset! My goal was of course to capture the beautiful colors, but also to capture the sun going down with some definition, which I have not been able to do before. I think I accomplished that here. Other than a slight straightening this photo is SOOC.
Settings: ISO 200, 163mm, ss1/250, f/10
(full manual, sunlight wb, SOOC with cropping)
And now, this week's color is Violet Red:
This photo was taken at Balloons Over Bend in Bend, Oregon. This was taken before I started my journey into photographing on manual. My goal was to capture all 3 balloons lit up and the beautiful colors. In Lightroom, I did minor work with the tone curve, upped the blacks and the saturation and vibrancy.
Settings: ISO 1600, 18mm, ss1/15, f/3.5 (full auto)
