Well following my last upload on Roseberry Sunset here another one taken about 20 mins before my last upload.
Thanks for all comments and votes on past uploads
Beautiful image Stephen
Hi Stephen. I've looked at this and yesterdays upload and both are really nice compositions but personally I couldn't live with the amount of flare caused by shooting straight into such a powerful sun, which there is absolutely nothing you could do to control. I would have either waited until the sun was behind a cloud (if they were dense enough) or waited until it was crossing or had crossed the horizon. That would have eliminated the flare and also made the contrast levels easier to control with a grad or two
Well, I like it with the flare! Works for me Steve.
a beauty stephen and that sky is just stunning nice one
I also like the flare
Hi Stephen. I just read my comment from last night and sorry I think I might have come across a bit harsh or possibly even rude. I wasn't trying to say I didn't like the images I was trying to say that I think it has enormous potential
I was up here myself on Tuesday night and faced the same problem. The light & view was amazing, to look at but was physically impossible to photograph. I tried a few shots panned more to the right to keep the sun out of the frame and cast a shadow over the front element to stop the flare but this was very restrictive compositionally. I'm going to go back at sunrise which I think might work very well. I'm guessing you don't live too far away so maybe you could try the same or go back on a night when there is a bit more cloud to hide the sun???
