28 Seconds Later....

By ade_mcfade      
....and the sun had gone.

the sky quickly took on a more blue appearance and the extremities of the frame got darker.

this one's probably a few minutes later than yesterday's posing, but wanted to rip off Danny Boyle's "28 Days Later" title Smile

A landscape version obviously, but pretty much the same expousre settings and stood in the same spot. Just amazing how much can change in such a short time.

I changed lenses LOADS (only got 3 I use) to get in there, then get a wide view, then zoom in on the actual sun as it disappeared.... but these 15mm ones sum up what I actually saw - hence posting them

1/125 @ F22

Jesus - I'm sat at the PC looking out towards where I took this shot and it looks just as good - if not better - tonight!!! The sky's just orange!

Still, went on a little bike ride and it'll have done me good Smile

Great shot - I remember a sunset last boxing day and the amazing changes in colour. How do you find the 15-30 on the 10D - looking at something wider than my 18-50. Cheers, Martin

The 15-30 is tops Martin, but be warned - you CANNOT use Cokin P seris on them at 15mm without some serious vignetting!!

The difference between 15 and 18 is quite marked though - huge in fact.

Also, the 15-30 is an "EX" series and consequently as sharp as a pin. I did quite a lot or research before buying, and all was good.

It's great in balanced light - take a look at some of my Temple Newsham shots on

Mostly just shot in RAW, exposed for the sky and taken at about 15mm then straightened out in PS later.

I think it's value - you could get the 16-35L F2.8 but that's a grand!!!! Tried on in Jesspos and it's nice mind!

If you're in the Leeds area and want to try it then give us a shout.
