    Does anyone else have this problem?...One of the problems of being a photographer means that sometimes I don't get a chance to fully enjoy the scene I'm taking. I'm usually so busy taking the picture that sometimes I don't enjoy the moment especially a sunset because it can be drastically different every few minutes.

    So for this picture I decided to take only a few shots and then put down my camera and just enjoy the view before me. Sunsets go by surprisingly quick when I'm trying to figure out the best compositions and exposures, so I decided to just enjoy one sunset for a change. :wink: Hopefully, this picture turned out ok. I would like to know what you guys think about it. Thanks.

    Thanks a lot everyone. I really appreciate your comments.

    My problem is that since I'm a photographer I don't get to fully soak in the environment I'm taking because my mind is busy taking pictures. Seeing the world through the eyes of the camera, on tv, or in a picture is a different experience than being self aware of all your senses when you are actually there. For example, when people are thinking nice sunset I'm thinking what aperture, shutter speed, etc. ;)

    I was just wondering if you guys also debated whether to put down the camera and enjoy the moment or to spend the moment busy behind the camera? It's vary rare for me to just take a few shots and then stop because I usually use every possible second to recompose and experiment with my shots.

    Even when I don't have my camera with me, I'm thinking how I would shoot the sunset. I haven't enjoyed a sunset without thinking of my camera since I started shooting :lol:

    lol, I see where you are coming from. I saw the most gorgeous scene of Auckland the other day, the sky was pink, there was a double rainbow over the Skytower, both reflections where reflected in the ocean. There was a row of multi coloured boats, whose reflection was also in the water. The lighting was immaculate. And i didn't have my camera!

    But, after sulking for about 10 seconds - I just realised how fortunate I was just to see such a beautiful scene. I don't need a camera, its already etched permanently in my mind :D

    And you always see what could potentially be your best shot when your without your camera. Well, obviously not this time.

    :shock:
