Went out to the sunset today
The look nice. Pleasing color. Horizon looks a little tilted to me though. I prob like the 2nd one best.
yeah i fixed some of them, i think i forgot some though
anyone else? i looove sun rises/sets and want to improve on shooting them
Also.... Consider adding some foreground elements to spice things up. A sunset is a sunset afterall.
Consider a long exposure to get the water to glaze - emphasizing the reflection on the water.
Aren't #1 and #5 exact duplicates????
oops, yeah my bad, i think i had another lemme find it
edit: fixed duplicates, and at that particular place, there wasnt much for foreground, the actual beach was about 10 feet long, it was actually a part i've never been to before
I think that you have a good start with some beautiful sunsets, but if you want to step it up a notch you need to fill more of the frame with something. A start would be taking #2 and cropping off most of the sky (there's nothing adding to the photo) and some off the left to de-center the sun. The next step would be to work on finding other things of interest. Something or someone on the shore, a small boat near the shore, interesting and colorful cloud formations in more of the sky, etc. Go back and keep shooting. - TF
yeah I hear ya, i was hoping for some clouds higher in the sky but it's all luck on what the sky provides. In my other sunset shoot, there was a few nice clouds and then the entire sky was grey above it which sucked, and now it was all empty.
I keep looking for some subjects, but I had never been to this spot, and the beach itself was about 10 feet long hahaha.
the shots are very flat. the advise ranmyaku and shutterspeed said would really help with that. keep at the shootin.
Fine shots, if off-axis. The subject IS the sunset, nothing else needs to be there.
