Wilstone Sunset

By ghibby  
Shot a couple of hours after yesterdays upload. This is one of my regular sunset haunts along the banks of the Wilstone Reservoir near Tring in Hertfordshire.

I exposed for the sky to ensure the trees remained pure black. The colours in the sky were so deep that this seemed to be the best approach. I isolated the strongest and most contrasty area of the scene using a focal length of 58mm.

RAW capture and processing in CS2 with curves adjustements.

Hope you like, Ben
