About the last we saw of the sun last night over in Goole.
Well just outside goole anyway.
In the distance there is a little Drax power station, but you can't really see it in this shot I don't think
It's 1 shot, about 1 second, 5 stops of ND on the sky and lots of wavey movement from the oil seed
trying to type on a train is a right pain by the way... and not on a table seat so no mouse and very unconfortable...,
BUT free wierless makes it all worth while

The central positioning of the sun works well for me in this one however the shoot feels too deep. The lower section of the image is dark and doesnt really offer anything in terms of impact to me. Having opened it large I much prefer a letterbox comp or even to see this as a pano ... where I think it would be highly effective!
Sky is excellent and i love ths starburst ... gives it a real feeling of warmth. I might also have chosen to grad this a bit more and use an additional ND on top to get a bit more movement into the rape ... but until I saw the shots site by side difficult to tell.
Still worthy of an RC click.
PS This critique things working
I personally like the sense of depth that the extra foreground gives. I like the way the light from the sun fades to darkness as though its the last ray before complete darkness. I love the sky this is a fantastic shot.
Told you the wireless was useful - like the sky and the sunburst too.
Will be looking at my image tonight so hoping they come out as well as this.
This has come out
this is a teriffic image
maybe getting rid of the bottom quarter would give a different effect Dan... panning down on a lot of wide angle shots is bad, happens too often. Here, I wanted that "being john malkowich" effect, where everything you see is the same bloody flower
fair comments though.... and I'd put all the grads on that I posess!
in a bar in Katherine's Lock in London, 3rd pint of Hoegaarden going down well - but it was sunnty in Leeds and it's grey as hell here!
Hadnt fully read the opening text to be honest so didnt realise how gradded it was! There is some movement there anyway but maybe a touch more would have helped for me ..
Just like what i was gonna load tom
But wont now lol
Looks well bud enjoy the capital
Ok from the "Does the image work?" position, and rather non-technical following the eloquent comments above, I have to say that I like this a lot Adrian (Dan?) There is a real feeling of depth and a critical darkness to the oil seed rape which make this unusually powerful.
A great shot Ade makes me want to get out there but its dark now.
All horses these days.
Dont worry it became very grey here so you did not miss anything.
Love how the sun makes the flower a lovely rich golden colour.
Cracking image Ade.
Look ofrward to seeing some shots from there.
A very interesting take on the rape seed fields so popular at the moment. I particularly like the depth of this as it adds a sense of mystery as well as the movement of the crop, little animals live down here and move around during the dark hours, when the photogrpahers go home or off to the pub.
Nice work and I know how good a beer tastes after a day in the country.
All the very best Ade, another very fine image,
I must admint I prefer your previous shot to this. I don't know it it is possible, but I would have liked to see more detail araound the sun, I think the sky is a bit too white or burnt out. One idea is perhaps to dodge the front bit of the picture to make the yellow stand out bit more?
Ah well. Those weirdless networks are a blessing...
I know what you're saying Ellie, but have you ever shot into a sunset before?
the problem is that the sun/sky is HUGELY brighter than the foreground, and even with 5 stops of ND grad as I used here, you either have to get a very dark foreground and nice background, or vice versa.
I went for the bright-ish sky and dark foreground and dodged to the limits of digital noise to get some detail. Any more, and it'd start to look pixellated you see.
The main "thing" in the sky is the red tinged clouds, the area around the sun would just have been plain yellow, so I had no qualms losing that detail.
give it a go next time there's a sunset - it's an interesting challenge
