Three Choices

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all at ePz

Thank you all so very much for your most welcomed comments and votes following my 'Patriotic' upload yesterday.

Todays upload was captured yesterday afternoon as the sun was saying goodbye to the Hoo Peninsula. I have uploaded three variants each with a slight increase in exposure, please take the the time to look at each one in turn. I rather like image one because of the darkness against the beautiful colour laden sky. No manipulation or post processing has taken place, they are as exactly as I captured them.

I hop that you have a great day.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

V1 Nathan but I'm not sure why. Maybe I think I like a slightly darker look.

Lovely colours, I slightly prefer v2 as it is just a tad lighter, just one thing is the composition pertaining to the horizon being Central and not on a third which I know is a guide but IMHO I'm not 100% it works sorry.

Like a postcard Grin

1.30am really? hope its not a typo, now any reason why the F stop is 29? trying to understand the logic.

Yes V2 for me too Nathan, superb.

17 Nov 2013 10:22AM
I can see what you are saying Nathan, for me I prefer v3, just slightly lighter, having said that it is only marginal between all of them as they are great anyway.

Not the sharpest of shots Nathan but the colour makes them more than worthwhile. My personal favourite is V3.
17 Nov 2013 10:27AM
V1 for me with the feeling of after glow in the sky and land.
You could easily use any one of the trio but V1 does it for me Nathan.

Beautiful colours and light, Nathan, and wow to no PP having been done!

As for exposure, I like how everything above the horizon has turned out in V1...combined with everything below the horizon in V2.

As for choosing one version, it'll have to be V2 here Smile

I prefer #1 too Nathan, the balance of sky and foreground is just right!!
Number 1 does it for me, it looks to me to be the best exposure.

Beautiful shot Smile
