    Just a couple shots from a quick hike before sunset, and then twilight.

    I've never really tried to capture a shot of someone at sunset. The colors in the sky were so awesome that I thought I could give it a try.

    Spot metered off the sky, manual focus, fill flash (on camera)...

    This was before the sunset during that magic hour of light.

    I think the meter off the sky worked. I would crop #1. I like #2. I think the shutter at 1/40 worked better for the lighting of the subject. I think f5 was too big to get any details of the sky, but I understand the lighting conditions sort of limited you. I like the third one. Last one looks like a snap shot. Just my amateur opinions for ya.

    Thanks for the comments.
    Yeah I had no light there so I went wide open. I knew there wouldn't be much detail in the sky, but all I wanted was the color over the mountains. As for the cropping, the subject was almost equally as important as getting as much of the sky as I could.

    hmm, the first photo maybe need to be adjusted a little about frontal lighting and side lighting because the model is very flat

    The sky in #1 is great. I feel as though the flash is a bit harsh. Maybe off camera or diffused flash would look a bit better. Nice shot though. :thumbup:

    I agree, and thanks...

    A prime example of why an on camera flash just doesnt cut it.
